Interest in spatial audio has increased due to the availability of multichannel reproduction systems for the home and car. Various timbral ear training systems have been presented, but relatively little work has been carried out into training in spatial attributes of reproduced sound. To demonstrate that such a training system is truly useful, it is necessary to show that learned skills are transferable to different settings. Issues relating to the transfer of training are examined; a recent study conducted by the authors is discussed in relation to the level of transfer shown by participants, and a new study is proposed that is aimed to optimise the transfer of training to different environments.
