Loudness adaptation was measured for pure tones at 4, 12, 14, and 16 kHz. In three experiments, a total of 87 young listeners judged--by the method of successive magnitude estimation--the loudness of the tones over a 6-min exposure period. Thresholds were measured by an adaptive 2IFC procedure. Although earlier measurements had shown that adaptation near threshold increases with frequency, these new data reveal that the increase is especially marked at higher sensation levels. Thus, at 40 dB SL… CONTINUE READING
