Ben Kok is an Acoustic Consultant specialized in all aspects related to high-quality sound reproduction in small and large rooms, with and without the use of sound systems. With a career in acoustics and electro-acoustics spanning over 40 years, he has served on the manufacturer/supplier side, as well as a consultant/specifier and client representative. 
Ben is a specialist in the relation between subjectively perceived acoustic quality and objective acoustic measures and how to implement these measures architecturally.
Like no other, Ben is at ease with natural (room) acoustics as well as with the possibilities and limitations of electro-acoustic systems, which allows him to find unique, but realistic solutions, in difficult situations.
Ben has presented his work for the AES and other professional societies in papers on Speech Intelligibility, Variable Acoustics, Sound System Design, Loudspeaker Design and Studio Design.
Being an active AES member for nearly 40 years, Ben has functioned as a committee member for the Netherlands section for multiple terms; including being chairman from 2007 till 2009. Apart from presenting papers at various AES Conventions, Ben participated in multiple workshops and presented a tutorial on “Small Room Acoustics”.
