Spatial unmasking of nearby pure-tone targets in a simulated anechoic environment.


Detection thresholds were measured for different spatial configurations of 500- and 1000-Hz pure-tone targets and broadband maskers. Sources were simulated using individually measured head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) for source positions varying in both azimuth and distance. For the spatial configurations tested, thresholds ranged over 50 dB… (More)
