Abstract: This research investigates the impact of musical sophistication on the interaction between music and expected haptic softness. While our results suggest that soft (vs. hard) music increases the expected haptic softness for products for which haptic softness is diagnostic, we show that musically sophisticated people are better at recoding music into semantic associations related to haptic softness.
