Formula:MT = S + 3 * M

Introduction to Masking Threshold Calculation

The masking threshold (MT) is calculated by adding three times the masker threshold (M) to the signal threshold (S). In acoustics, the masking threshold is used to determine the minimum level of a signal that can be detected in the presence of a masker or background noise. The masking threshold calculation is fundamental in psychoacoustics and audio engineering to understand human perception of sound and design efficient compression algorithms, noise reduction techniques, and audio codecs.

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The input values should be within the valid range.


This formula is used to calculate the masking threshold, which is essential in understanding auditory perception and designing audio systems.
