Modification of HRTF Filters to Reduce Timbral Effects in Binaural Synthesis

Using head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) in binaural synthesis often produces undesired timbral coloration. In this paper, a method for designing modified HRTF filters with reduced timbral effects is proposed. The method is based on reducing the variation in the root-mean-square spectral sum of a pair of HRTFs while preserving the interaural time difference and interaural level difference. In formal listening tests it is shown that the coloration due to the tested non-individualized HRTFs can be significantly reduced without altering the resulting localization.
