"Sounds Big: The Effects of Acoustic Pitch on Product Perceptions,"

The article about the article did not mention a discussion of why low pitched sounds are associated with thinking things look larger.

It sounds like the same as the moon on the horizon looking bigger. The connection would be that low pitched sounds carry further so their sources are judged to be further away - hence appearing larger. Same as light being fainter on the horizon. Thanks G.Berkeley.
