Experienced Listeners Preference between 44.1 kHz and 96 kHz
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Music and other audio has been released with higher sample rates than the standard CD-quality 44.1 kHz. Prior research has given differing results as to if there is any perceivable differences between different sample rates. This study investigates if experienced listeners prefer 96 kHz or 44.1 kHz. This was done with double-blind forced-choice paired-comparison listening tests. The results shows no significant preference for any of the sample rates. This can be explained by various reasons: either that there is no perceivable subjective difference between the audio qualities or that the preference is not shared among the listeners, or something in the test may have distorted the results.
