Principle of Three-Dimensional Sound Reproduction

  • Kazuhiro Iida


By appropriately using the knowledge on HRTFs described in detail above, the three-dimensional acoustical sensation of an existing sound field can be reproduced or that of an imaginary sound field can be generated beyond time and space. This chapter introduces the principle of three-dimensional sound reproduction through headphones and with two loudspeakers.
