Thank you for your interest in participating in a study! We currently have the following studies actively seeking participants:
Perceptional evaluation of concert halls with different properties
The overall goal of the project is to better understand how people subjectively perceive differences in concert hall acoustics. Subjects will listening to musical passages, side-by-side, in aural simulations of being in different concert halls or rooms. Subjects will then be asked to provide perceptual ratings on reverberance about the different rooms in which they are listening to. The results from this research will help to better understand how concert-goers perceive different room, and will help acoustic consultants to better design concert hall in the future to produce more pleasing acoustic environments.
Acoustical Model of Mach Cut-off Flight
Researchers in the Graduate Program in Acoustics are looking for participants for a study related to aircraft noise. The experiment will take approximately 1-1.5 hours of your time. The experiment will consist of listening to aircraft flyovers. You will be asked to rate the stimuli on a variety of scales. The signals will be played at a controlled volume. The compensation for your voluntary participation is $25 (in the form of a gift card) and a chance to win a $50 gift card (odds are about 1 in 40).
