Abstract

Horizontal sound source identification is being studied in normal-hearing human subjects aged 10 to 79 years, in an acoustic environment which models real-world listening. One group of sixteen subjects, aged 20-29 years has been tested thus far. All were screened for hearing loss in the region of 0.5-4 kHz. Within subject, pure-tone hearing thresholds in each ear were in the normal range. Differences between ears were no greater than 7 dB. Differences in accuracy favouring speakers on the left side of space have not been previously documented in any detail.
