G9. the Voice From Afar: How Reverberation Affects Consumer Cognition

How do acoustic parameters in the human voice affect consumers? Drawing on literature in acoustics and construal level theory, this research proposes that reverberation, an intuitive cue in auditory distance perception, affects consumers’ inferences about both spatial and non-spatial distances and increases construal level with consequences for judgments and decision-making.
