Sample text

12 shows the equal loudness contours for the human ear. These contours, originally measured by Fletcher and Munson (1933) and by others since, represent the relationship between the measured sound pressure level and the perceived loudness of the sound. The curves show how loud a sound must be in terms of the measured sound pressure level to be perceived as being of the same loudness as a 1 kHz tone of a given level. There are two major features to take note of, which are discussed below. The first is that there are some humps and bumps in the contours above 1 kHz.

For example, the audience at a concert may well experience brief peaks above this, especially at particular instants in works such as Elgar’s Dreams of Gerontius, or Orff’s Carmina Burana. Also, in many practical industrial and social situations the noise level may be louder than the second action level of 85 dBA, in Europe for only part of the time. How can we relate intermittent periods of noise exposure to continuous noise exposure? For example, how damaging is a short exposure to a sound of 96 dBA?

Note that because this enhancement is due to an acoustic effect in the outer ear it is independent of signal level. The second effect is an amplitude dependence of sensitivity which is due to the way the ear transduces and interprets the sound and, as a result, the frequency response is a function of amplitude. This effect is particularly noticeable at low frequencies but there is also an effect at higher frequencies. The net result of these effects is that the sensitivity of the ear is a function of both frequency and amplitude.
