In this paper, we investigate the perception of height cues in motion-tracked transaural reproduction. 10 subjects are asked to localise sounding objects with height in a two-loudspeaker head-tracked transaural reproduction setup. Features of the HRTF for height perception are tested with generic HRTFs from a KEMAR binaural mannequin and spectral enhancement through modelling and subsequent exaggeration of HRTF cues for height perception. Results illustrate the applicability of HRTF cue exaggeration in transaural systems for height perception with non-individualised HRTFs.
