Binaural Recording System and Sound Map of Malaga

This Engineering Brief describes part of the results obtained in the Master Thesis ‘”Binaural Recording System and Sound Map” for the Masters in Acoustic Engineering at the University of Malaga. The aim of this project is the construction and the characterization of a pair of in-ear binaural microphones with high-quality capsules. A set of HRTF measurements was obtained and applied to different audio signals for the realization of a psychoacoustic experiment to assess the spatiality provided by the system. For the system assessment, another set of audio samples was generated from the MIT’s HRTFs, and both results have been compared. Additionally, different soundscapes have been recorded with the binaural system, and a binaural sound map of Malaga has been developed, which aims to create an archive to collect and conserve the most distinctive sounds of the city using an immersive technology.
