Abstract
Researchers, developers and manufacturers put a lot of effort into improving the audio quality of their products but little is known about the overall resulting e ect on the individual customer. An experiment with 34 participants was conducted with the purpose to investigate the relationship between audio quality and overall listening experience in more detail. When rating the overall listening experience, participants are allowed to take every aspect into account which is important to them, including their taste in music. The participants rated the overall listening experience of short music excerpts in di erent levels of bandwidth degradation. The result analysis revealed that listening to a song which is liked was slightly more important than the provided audio quality when participants rated the music excerpts. Nevertheless, audio quality was an important factor for less-liked songs to get higher ratings than more-liked songs with low or medium audio quality.
