If the answer is Yes, the user is prompted to turn the ANC on een the sequence repeats the passive measurements. As more and more loudspeaker engineers find themselves employed in the fast-growing headphone market, either through company diversification or changing jobs, it is important that the unique challenges ej testing headphone packages are fully understood.

Registration required The content you have requested is available only to registered visitors. Similarities and Differences First, let us look at the similarities in testing loudspeakers and headphones. Software Requirements SoundCheck The Audio Voice Newsletter. First, a pink noise stimulus is played from the noise speakers and recorded by the unoccluded ears.

Testing on a head-and-torso simulator. Various pinna couplers used to measure headphone response. SoundCheck screen for headphone response measurement. Headphone Voltage Sensitivity Final Display. It then calculates the voltage required to produce 1 mW into the rated impedance.

Noise speakers are set up adjacent to the HATS left and right ears. Headphones and earphones Status: Comparison between an ideal loudspeaker free-field measurement and the same measurement in the ear of a head-torso simulation device.

This website is best viewed with browser version of up to Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3. In this article, we discuss the issues that are common to testing all types of headphones. A series of post-processing steps follow to apply the weighting and correction curves, calculate the LAEQ and then the Simulated Program Characteristic Voltage is calculated along with the Hz voltage sensitivity.


Hardware Requirements In order to run the sequences, the following hardware is required: Figure 1a and b: Crosstalk and radiation curves are then shown on the final display.

A series of post processing steps calculates the attenuation curves, their average values and shows them on the final display. The basic measurements made on headphones are very similar to those made on loudspeakers. Now, let us look at the differences. However, there are some major differences and additional issues that need to be taken into account.

Whereas loudspeakers are tested in open air, a headphone or earphone must be presented with an acoustic load that simulates the 602687- ear. This sequence uses a pink noise stimulus to characterize the passive, active and total attenuation of noise cancelling headphones.

The folder contains dependent files required to run the sequences.

The primary difference in the test set up between a loudspeaker and a headphone measurement is in the way in which the transducer interacts with the microphone. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world.

The IEC standard | Headphone Reviews and Discussion –

The sequence then goes through a series of acquisition steps to generate four fundamental 06268-7 which are then post-processed to calculate crosstalk. You are ready to start the sequence. It then enters a loop which will run 5 times. The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has likely been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.


Headphone Testing (Part 1): The Basics

The standard itself is a lengthy document, 9 Sections and 3 Annexes covering 46 printed pages. The sequence first plays a stepped sine through both channels of the DUT and captures the sound radiation from the DUT using 2 reference mics.

The data from each loop iteration is displayed as it is acquired. Headphones and earphones Withdrawn. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or The spectra are then power summed to derive rn single SPL value and the Hz fundamentals are post processed to derive their SPL values. No – I don’t want to receive the latest audio test information by email.

Please complete the short form below all fields are required. Headphones and earphones incorporating corrigendum November In order to add these Signal Paths to your System Calibration or relink to existing Signal Paths, you should open each of the sequences individually and, if prompted, add or relink Paths to your System Calibration. If passive, connect to the headphone amp or separate audio power amplifier You are ready to start the sequence.

The set-up essentially consists of an electroacoustic measurement system, some kind of ear simulator containing a reference microphone, and the device under test.

As more and more loudspeaker engineers find themselves employed in the fast-growing headphone market, it is important that the unique challenges of testing headphone packages are fully understood. The sequence uses a stepped sine stimulus to 6268-7 frequency response, THD and impedance, a composite signal of 70 Hz and Hz with an amplitude ratio of 4:
