Listener training in published studies has tended to focus on simple repetitive practice of experimental tasks without feedback. Time savings in listening panel selection and training could be accomplished if a more general training system could be used and applied to a variety of tasks. In order for a training system for spatial audio listening skills to prove effective, it must demonstrate that learned skills are transferable and it must compare favourably with repetitive practice on specific tasks. A novel study to compare a training system with repetitive practice has been extended to include a total of 48 subjects. Transfer is assessed and practice and training are compared against a control group for tasks involving transfer of spatial audio training.
