We asked 25 test persons to locate real and virtual sound sources within a 360 degree environment. During the tasks head movements were recorded by an head tracker with a time resolution of 20ms.

Contrary to the assumption that stronger head movements support localisation ability, we could not establish a simple relationship between head movements and good localisation.
