Revision of E1573-22 Standard Test Method for Measurement and Reporting of Masking Sound Levels Using A-Weighted and One-Third-Octave-Band Sound Pressure Levels


The precision and bias statement in the current version of the standard lacks details and evidence. This work item will serve to establish the precision and bias of the measurement method to be included in a future revision. In addition, revisions of the microphone scanning method and averaging over multiple positions will be incorporated into this work item.
