Help Us Create the Best Sound Quality Possible

Tell us what you hear!

We’re testing how our audio sounds for those who were born and raised in East Asia and have immigrated to the United States within the past five years.

Participation includes a one-hour, in-person interview with a member of our team. Once you’ve shared your audio preferences with us, we’ll give you a $200 Amazon gift card for your time!

See if you qualify with our quick form. Once you've qualified, schedule your appointment for an in-person interview.



Meet with us and listen to six short music, spoken word audio, or video clips. Then rate them based on their sound quality.



Share an audio experience from East Asia and compare it to audio experiences in America to make your impact on our sound quality.


We’re interested in understanding what users like you think about the tonal quality of digital sound for day-to-day audio and video interactions. We want to hear about your needs for specific audio quality in order to influence our future audio technology.

We’re looking for people aged 18-60 to help by participating in our research study. If you qualify, we’ll reach out to schedule your interview with a staff member.


Participation in the study includes an 1-hour interview at our campus in Durham, NC.

The first half of the interview will consist of a Perceptual Evaluation Test (PET) where you’ll listen to 6 short music and spoken word audio and video clips and rate them based on a given scale. Audio clips will be in English and Mandarin.

The safety of our research participants is our top priority. We have implemented  processes to ensure that we maintain a COVID-19 safe environment for everyone who enters our facility. 


The second half of the Interview will consist of our team member learning details about one or two examples of your day-to-day audio experiences. You will then be asked to share a specific audio experience, its context, and your preferences from when you lived in your home country. We’ll then ask you to reflect on how your sound quality perceptions have evolved since living in the United States.

Once your interview is complete, you’ll receive $200 in the form of an Amazon gift card.
