3D audio is now available both in professional and mass market products. Our listening experience is thus enhanced by the spatial dimension, which calls for revisiting the methods and tools used to assess the perception of sound reproduction. The workshop will discuss this issue in the particular case of binaural rendering which raises some specific questions: interaction between timbre and spatial information, HRTF customization, headphone reproduction., etc. This will be the opportunity to cross methods used for binaural listening with conventional methods of perceptual assessment.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Spatial Audio and AES Technical Committee on Perception and Subjective Evaluation of Audio Signals
