Audio Media Usage

How do the Germans listen to music nowadays? Survey Musik und Medien 2012 delivers representative data on actual audio media usage of German population. These data allow the comparison of usage frequencies regarding new and old audio media technologies with reference to three separate domains of audio technology use:

Audio Sources describe distribution channels by which music is purchased, archived and made accessible. The term Audio Devices refers to technical devices that permit access to and enable playback of Audio Sources. Audio Emitters finally comprise those technical objects that are connected to Audio Devices to make the Audio Sources actually audible.

This research project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
and operates within the Audio Communication Group of the Technische Universität Berlin.
