This approximation is only valid in the far-field with spherical radiation. For every measurement, we strongly recommend to measure the quiet noise first. You can improve the measurement sensitivity by reducing the measurement distance from 1m to e. In a normal office environment at a quiet noise level of 45dBA it is impossible to analyze a fan with 25dBA. The reference level is one sone, which is equivalent to a tone with 1kHz at a level of 40dB.

Most people will agree that the sound of a flute is much nicer than a drill used by dentist although they both might have the same loudness. Nobody would expect to hear the sound of a mouse during a dinn orchestra, although the mouse would audible in quiet phases.

This offset can be corrected 46531 a different calibration factor, which allows WinAudioMLS to show the measurements results with respect to 1m. We strongly recommend switching off noise sources if possible windows, air-condition, computers etc. A famous psychoacoustics effect is acoustical masking.

With a distance of 25cm the correction factor is 12dB. Many sone measurements include analysis of low noise devices e. Therefore, dB A is very limited in its usage although widely used. In the near-field you will encounter e. The optimum measurement environment is a special anechoic chamber, dn reduces reflections and noise from outside.


Many measurement microphones have a sensitivity of 30dB, which defines the lower bound for measurements. For complex sounds and noise, this ein model is not valid anymore. A result was a model for the human hearing.

In most sound pressure meters available today you will find these techniques, because they are easily to derive from the physical parameters.

Zwicker analyzed various psychoacoustics effects thoroughly. For stationary signals you will achieve ein better results than the traditional dB A. A complete measurement system for sone contains the following components:.

ISO 532 B / DIN 45631 Loudness

A wideband noise has a different subjective loudness than a pure tone at the same level measured in dB A. This measurement describes the subjective loudness. Therefore, we strongly recommend documenting this different measurement distance clearly, because it is difficult to compare different measurement distances.

Loudness Sone A wideband noise has a different subjective loudness than a pure tone at the same level measured in dB A.

The research work around from Barkhausen result into the well known A,B,C weighting curves. Based on its countless hearing tests, Zwicker developed a model for loudness measured in sone.

All psycho acoustic analysis requires absolute sound levels. A loud tone hides quiet tones.

A sound level of 82dB will be displayed as 94dB. We will explain this with an example. A first approach dni to take into account that the ear is less sensitive at lower and higher frequencies. In contrast to dB A sone is a linear parameter. This increases the signal level by 12dB. The normal measurement distance is 1m. Two sone has double loudness compared to one sone.

Loudness measurement in sone (DIN ISO B)

By reducing the distance to the half, the level increases by 6dB. We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. However, in practice sine tones are not very common.


You can only perform a reliable measurement if the signal level is above the noise. Only parts of the signal, which are audible according to a model, are stored. Since the human ear is very sensitive, such measurements require high quality measurement equipment. A pure sine at lower levels e.

Loudness measurement in sone (DIN 45631 ISO 532B)

Sound can be described with various physical parameters e. These parameters are very limited to describe the perception of the human ear. If you use a sound level calibrator with 94dB, the reference level has 45613 set to 82dB. However, it does not allow distinguishing between nice or annoying tones. In addition, you have to calibrate the system.

It is ideally in the judgment of vin conditioners or typical PC noise like hard disks of fans. This can be achieved with a sound calibrator or a sound pressure meter.

Program for calculating loudness according to DIN (ISO B)

A very famous application of this and other effects are audio compression techniques like MP3. The noise includes acoustic noise from the environment and noise in the measurement chain from the microphone or preamplifier. Simply switch off the measurement device. The frequency response of the ear depends on the sound level, that is the reason for different curves, which are valid for a certain level only.

A complete measurement system for sone contains the following components: As mentioned previously, sone is valid for stationary signals only.
