Loudness is a way to measure audio levels based on the way humans perceive sound. Different factors influence the way we perceive loudness such as frequency, timbre, the listening environment, ear sensitivity, and more.
In the television, film, and music industries, loudness measurement has become a standard. This crucial process ensures audio levels remain consistent between loud and quiet songs. It also creates a better listening experience. Music fans can enjoy better quality music without having to adjust their volume controls between varying loudness levels of different songs.
