The combination of a binaural beamformer with an auditory model-based localizer and post-processor is presented. The intention of the design was to maintain a high degree of quality and listening ease while enhancing speech intelligibility. Therefore, a binaural and fixed minimum variance distortionless response beamformer was employed to establish a medium directivity at low self noise and high binaural naturalness. By applying models of binaural interaction at the two-channel output, sound… CONTINUE READING
