A Study of the Effect of Head Rotation on Transaural Reproduction

Document Thumbnail

The reproduction of binaural audio through loudspeakers, also commonly referred to as Transaural audio, allows for the rendering of immersive virtual acoustic images when the original binaural signal is accurately delivered to the listener’s ears. Such accurate reproduction is generally achieved by using a network of cross-talk-cancellation filters designed for a given listener’s position and orientation. This work studies the effect of small rotational movements of the listener’s head on the perceived location of a virtual sound source when the binaural signal is reproduced using an array of loudspeakers. The results of numerical simulations presented in this paper describe how the perceived virtual source position is affected by the variation of the head orientation.
