Experimental: Compressive signal processing algorithm
Participants compare music signals with preprocessing to the same music signals without compressive preprocessing.
Other: Audio signal processing (applied offline before playback)
- Benefit of signal processing for music perception [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Participants rate the enjoyment of music in 4 separate sessions, spread over an anticipated time frame of 3 months.
- Performance in music discrimination tests [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Participants perform an adaptive music discrimination test in which their discrimination thresholds are measured.
