Although the headphones listening became popular with the advent of portable audio playback systems such as Walkman and iPod, most of the music production are done using traditional loudspeaker systems. With this discrepancy in mind, the workshop will discuss following points: What is the difference between headphone listening and loudspeaker listening? Can we make the suitable sound for headphone listening through loudspeaker playback? Whether we should change the recording technique to adapt headphone listening? How a dummy head or HRTF technique used in actual recording? Panelists will introduce actual examples and discuss how we make the sound for headphones playback.
