This paper investigates sound source localisation, and in particular source elevation in motion tracked cross-talk cancellation system in comparison to dynamic virtual source rendering over headphones. An experiment is presented where subjects are asked to localise elevated sources using a low-latency motion-tracked cross-talk cancellation system under anechoic conditions using both individualised and non-individualised head related impulse responses (HRIRs). The transaural system utilises a hybrid Ambisonic and Phantom Sound Source Crosstalk Cancellation (CTC-PSS) approach. Results demonstrate that individualised HRIRs reduce the deviation in localisation accuracy in comparison to dummy head HRIRs in the motion tracked transaural system investigated.
