One of my new equalizers has a selector switch labeled "Integration". The choices were none , A , B , C or D weighting. Hmmmmmmm I wonder..........saw the same choices on my sound pressure meter. Here's a great article demystifying what it all means.

An excellent read on the subject of human ear sensibility. On acoustic reports (like machinery etc) you will often see x dB(A), which means measured through an A-filter. It represents best how the human ears respond, and therefore how much sound can bother us. Think of machinery, traffic noise etc. Thanks for posting, Geno.

MAN?! What are the chances? I just JUST finished wiki'ing this! :) Thanks boss!

EDIT

With the curve getting more linear as we go up in dB, what does this say about monitoring levels then? Surely it is going to severely skew your final EQ if you keep changing the volume of your mix or if you don't mix at the right level.

In the end your goal is to hear what you want to hear and your monitoring system does nothing more or less than reproducing sound of a natural origin. That means that your perception, EQ wise, is already in that spectrum. So EQ-ing has nothing to do with the sensibility of your ear.
