Each subject participated in the following experiments for this study: S-T and M-T experiments. Each subject listened to four stories read by a female and male speaker (denoted by Spk1 and Spk2). Both Spk1 and Spk2 were native American English speakers and were recorded in-house. For the M-T experiment, subjects were presented with a mixture of the same female and male speakers (Spk1 and Spk2), with no spatial separation between them. The acoustic waveform of each speaker was matched to obtain the same root mean squared intensity. All stimuli were presented using a single Bose SoundLink Mini 2 speaker situated directly in front of the subject. The M-T experiment was divided into four blocks by mixing different stories of Spk1 and Spk2. In total, there were 11 min and 37 s of audio presented to each subject during the M-T experiment. The S-T experiment lasted twice as long as each subject was required to listen to each story once read by Spk1 and once by Spk2.
