Comparison of HRTFs from a Dummy-Head Equipped with Hair, Cap, and Glasses in a Virtual Audio Listening Task over Equalized Headphones

Authors: Wersényi, György; Répás, József in: Proceedings of the 142nd Convention of the Audio Engineering Society Abstract: Head-Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs) are frequently used in virtual audio scene rendering in order to simulate sound sources at different spatial locations. The use of dummy-head HRTFs (also referred as generic sets) is often criticized because of poor localization performance, leading… Continue Reading Comparison of HRTFs from a Dummy-Head Equipped with Hair, Cap, and Glasses in a Virtual Audio Listening Task over Equalized Headphones

Evaluation of Training to Improve Auditory Memory Capabilities on a Mobile Device Based on a Serious Game Application

Authors: Nagy, Hunor; Wersényi, György in: Proceedings of the 142nd Convention of the Audio Engineering Society Abstract: Capabilities of the auditory memory system were tested in a serious game application developed for the Android mobile platform. Participants played the well-known game of finding pairs by flipping and remembering objects on cards arranged in a matrix structure. Visual objects… Continue Reading Evaluation of Training to Improve Auditory Memory Capabilities on a Mobile Device Based on a Serious Game Application
