This paper contains the results of a study making use of a set
of B-format soundscape recordings, presented in stereo UHJ format
as part of an online listening test, in order to investigate the
relationship between soundscape categorisation and subjective evaluation.
Test participants were presented with a set of soundscapes
and asked to rate them using the Self-Assessment Manikin (SAM)
and in terms of three soundscape categories: natural, human, and

sources present in each soundscape. Results show significant relationships
between soundscape categorisation and the SAM, and
indicate particularly significant sound sources that can affect these
