The effect of spatial separation on the ability of human listeners to resolve a pair of concurrent broadband sounds was examined. Stimuli were presented in a virtual auditory environment using individualized outer ear filter functions. Subjects were presented with two simultaneous noise bursts that were either spatially coincident or separated (horizontally or vertically), and responded as to whether they perceived one or two source locations. Testing was carried out at five reference locations… CONTINUE READING
