Acoustic design of enclosed spaces such as concert halls and auditorioums have a significant importance. However, small “listening rooms” such as rooms with music or home theater systems, recording studios etc. have also gained importance and started to have their own standarts in terms of their acoustic design. Manufacturers of the equipment (amplifiers, speakers etc.) that we use in such spaces clearly aim to obtain higher sound quality in their products but even the best equipments will sound bad in an acoustically inadequate environment. This paper aims to evaluate the acoustical properties of listening rooms and give suggestions about room design with a perspective of psychoacoustical facts of auditory perception in enclosed spaces. The relationship between auditory perception and acoustical criterias of small rooms will also be evaluated with a perspective of room acoustic design.
