S. Spors and J. Ahrens. Efficient range extrapolation of head-related impulse responses by wave field synthesis techniques. In IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), May 2011.
The audio samples have been generated by convolving a monotic speech sample by the respective left and right head-related impulse responses (HRIRs). Furthermore, a headphone compensation filter for the AKG K601 headphone has been applied. Hence, best results are achieved when listening with this headphone model. The effect of distance can be perceived best for a source at the side due to the underlying psychoacoustic properties of distance perception. Our free database of head-related impulse responses (HRIRs) has been used for the audio examples.
