Abstract

Sound quality analysis is an invaluable tool for the product designer. This tool is designed to help determine customer preferences, which can help the designer improve product quality, or the consumers' perception of the product's quality. Many industries desire to know how the consuming public perceives their product as this affects the product life and viability 1-2. This paper will present which of two brands of sewing machines ranging in market segments from entry-level, thru mid-level machines, to high-end computer controlled units, is the most acoustically pleasant. Results across market segments independent of brand will be evaluated and compared, as well. The methods used to determine the sound quality of these machines will be presented. These methods are both jury based listening tests and quantitative sound quality metrics.
