Calibration Noise
Calibrate our Noise Generators to your Own Hearing Curve

Are You Ready for an Ear-refreshing Experience?

myNoise is truly unique in its ability to compensate for your potential hearing loss, and for your audio equipment and listening environment deficiencies. 

Calibration settings will be stored as a browser cookie, and can be recalled any time by clicking the 'Balanced' or 'Full' options found under the iEQ section on every generator page.

If a particular band remains inaudible all across the slider range during calibration, back it off to the zero position. It doesn't make sense to work with frequencies you cannot hear anyway, or frequencies your loudpseakers cannot reproduce. Ideally, most sliders should be located in the bottom half of the user interface. If not, simply increase your computer’s sound level and start calibrating again.

How to Proceed

1. Increase your computer's volume until you start hearing the static noise used for calibration.

2. Move each slider so that its associated sound becomes just audible to you (hearing-threshold variant) or play at the same perceived loudness (equal loudness variant).

3. Once each slider has been set, save your curve.

4. Go back to your Noise Page - or select one - then load your calibration data by clicking one of the options under the iEQ section.

Use the 'Balanced' option to compensate for your hearing loss, and the 'Full' option if you have good hearing and are trying to compensate for the lack of quality of your speakers or headphones.
