Binaural recordings are often done using artificial heads but can also be done with a Jecklin disc. In this study an experiment was designed that allowed evaluation of noise and reverberation suppression based on speech intelligibility measurements. Recordings of a voice and disturbing noise were done in a reverberant environment using one artificial head and four Jecklin discs of various sizes. A listening experiment using headphones was conducted to determine the speech intelligibility in the recordings and in a real life situation. It was found that there was no significant difference in the speech intelligibility between the artificial head and Jecklin disc with a diameter of 36 cm.
