Abstract

This study determined the auditory threshold levels for recognizing binaurally presented 3-digit numbers embedded in diotic speech bable using three differently measured non-individualized head-related transfer functions (HRTFs). The results showed that the auditory threshold levels were significantly different across HRTFs. Consequently if virtual sources are to be used in a general purpose spatial auditory display then it is essential that the HRTFs be optimized for the targeted application.
