Sound/Acoustical Testing Analysis

Increasingly sound has become an important factor in product differentiation. Not only can the appropriate sound level produced by a product be a source of competitive advantage, the subjective qualities of the sound can lead a customer to choose one product over another.sound testing

The low frequency thunk sound of a car door closing, is one of the first impressions that a customer looks for in a solid, quality car. The satisfying click of a switch or the whisper of a dishwasher are all sounds that are now routinely engineered into products.

Using a portable multi-channel data acquisition sound testing system, we can acquire sound either within our in-house quiet room or on-sight and in-vehicle using microphones or the binaural (Aachen) head.
