A virtual acoustic imaging system (the "Stereo Dipole") based on the binaural technique turned out to show differences in performance between individual subjects.

Synthesized binaural signals were compared with those specifically designed for each subject. It was found that a mismatch of the HRTFs resulted in errors in image location.
