Haas Effect

Also known as the precedence effect. Delayed sounds are integrated by the auditory system if they arrive at the ear within 20 to 40ms of the direct sound. The level of the delayed components contributes to the apparent level of the sound, and it is accompanied by a pleasant change in character.
