360° Binaural Room Impulse Response (BRIR) Database for 6DOF Spatial Perception Research

This engineering brief presents an open-access database for 360° binaural room impulse responses (BRIR) captured in a reverberant concert hall. Head-rotated BRIRs were acquired with 3.6° angular resolution for each of 13 different receiver positions, using a custom-made head-rotation system that was automated and integrated with the Huddersfield Acoustical Analysis Research Toolbox. The BRIRs are provided in the SOFA format. The library also contains impulse responses captured using a first-order Ambisonic microphone and an omnidirectional microphone. The database can be downloaded through the Resource section of the APL website: . It is expected that the database would be useful for studying the perception of spatial attributes in a six degrees-of-freedom context.
