When comparing loudness matches obtained over a wide range of levels in different experimental studies, therefore, it is important to consider the sequence of stimulus levels presented within each study. Methods of measuring equal loudness vary among research laboratories and some of the methods have not been fully evaluated with regard to internal consistency. E. Marks and M. Florentine Fig. 4 Amount of temporal integration as a function of level. Data of Florentine et al. (1998) for the level difference between equally loud 5- and 200-ms tones at 1 kHz are plotted as a function of the SPL of the 5-ms tone.

This failure was recognized early by Riesz (1933), who proposed a possible solution to the failure of JNDs to provide a constant unit of loudness across sound frequency. Riesz suggested that, at every sound frequency, one may ascertain the range of loudness from bottom to top and then determine the number of JNDs in this range.
