Robustness of the Performance of the "Stereo Dipole" to Misalignment of Head Position
Binaural sound reproduction over loudspeakers requires that the listener's head must be in position to get good sound images. The performance deteriorates when the listener's head is moved out of position. Computer simulations and subjective experiments show that the stereo dipole, a system comprising two loudspeakers that are close together, is very robust with respect to head movement.
