Research into audio listening experiences


Hope it’s OK to post this here. I’m a University researcher working on the perception of sound and audio. I’m currently working on a project looking into immersive audio reproduction ( As part of the project, I’m running a survey to try to get a better understanding of why people listen to reproduced audio in different situations.

If you’re interested in taking part, the survey should take no more than 10-15 mins and you can enter into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon UK voucher. Here’s the link to the survey:

Happy to answer any questions about this or audio/sound perception in general.


how come dogs don’t like it when you moo at them?


DONE. Please fix it so I win the voucher.


No idea! I once worked on a project with a wildlife conservationist looking at whether we could find a specific sound newts dislike to try to get them to move away from construction sites. The only sound that had a significant effect was when you played Oasis at them.


Good survey.


Why do people die?


Sorry I’m an acoustician, I think you want a mortician.




I did it, not sure I fully understood some of the questions but did my best!
