Improved Externalization and Frontal Perception of Headphone Signals

Document Thumbnail

Externalization of spatial images depend on the recreation of the ratio between interaural time differences and interaural level differences. Front/back discrimination depends on the proper balance of loudness between the backward and forward directional bands and presumably also on the degree of binaural fusion. A system is described which will improve externalization and frontal perception of a normal stereophonic recording when listened to via headphones.
