Perceptually Robust Headphone Equalization for Binaural Reproduction
A new method for designing headphone equalization filters is proposed where not the average but an upper variance limit of many measured HpTFs is inverted and yields perceptually robust equalization. Expand
On the Optimization of the Multiple Exponential Sweep Method
Measuring spatial features of sound sources and receivers is typically a time consuming task, especially when a high spatial resolution is required, as independent measurements have to be conductedExpand
Experiments on authenticity and naturalness of binaural reproduction via headphones
Binaural stimuli presented via headphones need to be plausible in localization and sound coloration for a successful reproduction of an acoustic scene, especially for experiments on auditoryExpand
Sound localization in individualized and non-individualized crosstalk cancellation systems.
The direction-dependent analysis showed that mismatch and lack of individualization yielded a substantially degraded performance for targets placed outside of the loudspeaker span and behind the listeners, showing relevance of individualized CTC systems for those targets. Expand
Measuring Directivities of Natural Sound Sources with a Spherical Microphone Array
Ambisonics recording technique is based on a small microphone array, whose microphones are placed as close as possible to each other, but it is the spatial attributes of the sources outgoing spherical-like wave that should be recorded, leading to the need of a larger microphone array that completely encompasses the sound source.

Individualized Binaural Technology: Measurement, Equalization and Perceptual Evaluation
In this work the importance of individualization in binaural technique is investigated. The results extend the present knowledge on the efficient measurement of individual head-related transferExpand
Revisiting the Kronecker Array Transform
The definition of the KAT is reviewed and a much simpler derivation that relies on an explicit new relation developed between Kronecker and Khatri–Rao matrix products is provided, alleviating the restriction on the need of perfectly separable arrays. Expand
Two listeners crosstalk cancellation system modelled by four point sources and two rigid spheres
In virtual acoustic imaging systems, the perception of a sound source anywhere in space can theoretically be reproduced for one listener by using only two loudspeaker and an appropriate set ofExpand
Experiments on authenticity and plausibility of binaural reproduction via headphones employing different recording methods
Abstract Major criteria for a successful binaural reproduction are not only a suitable localization performance, but also the authenticity and plausibility of the presented scene. It is thereforeExpand
Compressive beamforming for moving sound source auralization
Conventional beamforming (CBF) is currently widely used for sound source localization. However, the quality of the results obtained with CBF is compromised by the fact that the CBF’s output does notExpand
