Abstract

The effect of activating-signal bandwidth upon the threshold of the acoustic reflex (TAR) was measured. Subsequently, loudness measurements were made for the same signals at the same intensity levels that were required to elicit an acoustic-reflex response. When loudness and TAR are compared at comparable levels, similar trends emerged. Results from this experiment provide evidence for both qualitative and quantitative similarities between acoustic reflex and the perception of loudness. This, in turn, suggest that signals at TAR may be equally loud for listeners with normal hearing.
