Hearing thresholds measured with high-frequency resolution show a quasiperiodic change in level called threshold fine structure (or microstructure). The effect of this fine structure on loudness perception over a range of stimulus levels was investigated in 12 subjects. Three different approaches were used. Individual hearing thresholds and equal loudness contours were measured in eight subjects using loudness-matching paradigms. In addition, the loudness growth of sinusoids was observed at… CONTINUE READING
