    Background and Objectives: This study investigated the effect of ageing on speech perception in quiet and in noise, with noise directed from front, right and left. Subjects and Methods: Sixty Malay native adults with normal or near normal hearing comprising of 20 young adults (21 to 39 years...

    In many areas where established noise goals, in terms of A-weighted sound levels, have been achieved--particularly in the vicinity of airports, the public remains dissatisfied. A-weighting accounts for the non-uniform frequency sensitivity of human hearing but is based upon data collected from...

It proposes for a new labelling system based on empirical data and suggests machine labels to show more subjective information about the emitted noise. A study was also conducted that examines the relation of...
