A novel approach to measure a binaural response is proposed based on the reciprocity principle. A modified dummy head system having two sound sources located at the ear positions is designed for this purpose. By applying the dummy head source system, the binaural response can be measured by placing microphones at the field points where originally are the source positions. The proposed method is capable to solve the difficulties of binaural measurement related to the installation of sound source at various positions. Also the system has advantages to measure the near field head-related transfer function and evaluate the contribution of acoustic pathway concerning the auditory response.
