The Voice From Afar: Reverberation in Spoken Advertising Messages Influences Consumer Information Processing

We provide first evidence that the sound design of an advertisement can have more than an aesthetic function as it affects consumers’ cognition. When reverberation was added to an announcer’s voice participants put more weight on statistical (versus individualized) product information. This effect influenced evaluation, willingness to pay, and choice.
