Binaural Loudness for Artificial-Head Measurements in Directional Sound Fields
The effect of the angle of incidences in the horizontal plane influences the perceived loudness of a sound field. In binaural listening, the experience of loudness requires two signals to be combined, each of which has been changed by head shadowing. This research provides a model based on power summation for predicting binaural loudness using artificial-head measurements. In subjective listening tests, there were no statistically significant differences between naive and expert listeners.
