This paper proposes a repository for storing full- and partial-body Head-Related Impulse Responses (HRIRs/pHRIRs) and Headphone Impulse Responses (HpIRs) from several databases in a standardized environment. The main differences among the available databases concern coordinate systems, sound source stimuli, sampling frequencies, and other important specifications. The repository is organized so as to consider all these differences. The structure of our repository is an improvement with respect to the MARL-NYU data format, born as an attempt to unify HRIR databases. The introduced information supports flexible analysis and synthesis processes and robust headphone equalization.
