"Coloration" refers to the perception of reflections as experienced by a listener. Although this perception is multidimensional in natural listening situations the overwhelming knowledge on this topic has been gathered by means of detection experiments in simple scenarios. This article reports on the use of a semantic differential to catch the multidimensional perception of reflections in natural environments. The results show that two dimensions are dominant for coloration. Furthermore, a method is introduced that predicts one dimension of coloration for diotic stimuli. For dichotic stimuli the method allows the observation of binaural decoloration. The results of the prediction suggest that auditory mechanisms for binaural decoloration do not provide a fixed advantage.
