A new evaluation framework for virtual acoustic environments (VAE) is introduced. The framework is based on the comparison of real-head recordings with physics-based room acoustic modeling and auralization. The real-head recording procedure and VAE creation method are discussed and new signal processing structures for auralization are introduced. As a case study, recordings were made in a classroom which was also modeled and auralized.
