6.4.6 Hand-held hands-free UE receiving

26.1313GPPRelease 17RequirementsTerminal acoustic characteristics for telephonyTS

The receiving sensitivity frequency response from the SS audio input (analogue or digital input of the reference speech encoder of the SS) to the free-field shall be as follows:

The receiving sensitivity frequency response shall be within the mask which can be drawn with straight lines between the breaking points in table 14 on a logarithmic (frequency) – linear (dB sensitivity) scale.

It is recommended as a performance requirement that the receiving sensitivity frequency response be within the mask which can be drawn with straight lines between the breaking points in table 14a on a logarithmic (frequency) – linear (dB sensitivity) scale.

Compliance shall be checked by the relevant test described in TS 26.132.

6.4.7 Electrical interface UE sending

The sensitivity/frequency characteristics shall be as follows:

The sending sensitivity frequency response measured at the electrical reference point shall be within a mask, which can be drawn between the points given in table 14a1. The mask is drawn with straight lines between the breaking points in table 14a1 on a logarithmic (frequency) – linear (dB sensitivity) scale.

NOTE: A tilt above 1 kHz is to compensate for the mouth to microphone acoustic path when the microphone is assumed to be hanging on a headset on the side of the head.
