The acceptability of artificial echoes' with reverberant speech and music
Groups of subjects seated in a room of short reverberation time (0.15 s) assessed whether or not a single artificial echo added to speech or music was disturbing. The artificial echo varied 50 dB in intensity level and up to 600 ms in delay. The acceptable-echo-level/delay relation is shown to consist of three parts; the initial period when the Haas effect is prominent, an interim period determined by the decay time of the sound type, and a final period when the level of acceptable echo scarcely changes with the delay, being determined by the dynamic range of the programme material.
