PHON2SONE convert SONE loudness values to PHONs p=(s) Inputs: s is a matrix of sone values Outputs: p is a matrix, the same size as s, of phon values The phon scale measures perceived loudness in dB; at 1 kHz it is identical to dB SPL relative to 20e-6 Pa sound pressure. The sone scale is proportional to apparent loudness and, by definition, equals 1 at 40 phon. The form of the loudness curve is taken from [1]. The hearing threshold at 1 kHz for 18 to 25 year olds with normal hearing is taken from [2]. Refs: [1] J. Lochner and J. Burger. Form of the loudness function in the presence of masking noise.
