Sounds Big: the Cross-Modal Effects of Auditory Pitch on Product Perceptions

This work examines the cross-modal correspondence of auditory pitch and physical size. Lower-pitch, whether from voice or background music, affects consumer perceptions of physical product size. These size perceptions, in turn, affect a number of other cognitions about the product and ultimately influence product attitudes and purchase intentions.
