Heavy-weight impact sounds generated by impact ball were classified according to the frequency characteristics on the equal loudness contours. Sound quality metrics such as Zwicker's loudness, sharpness, roughness of each classified impact sound were also measured. Loudness spectrum has been regarded as an indication of the characteristics difference of each classified impact sound. The adjectives in Korean expressing the sound quality characteristics of floor impact sounds were also investigated by adoptability and similarity tests. The group of the adjectives was used to evaluate the sound quality of floor impact sound by semantic differential test method.
