Evaluation of Localization Accuracy of Static Sources Using HRTFs from a Fast Measurement System
The use of individual head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) in the field of auralization has risen in recent years. The consequential need to measure individual HRTFs in a short period of time has led to the development of several measurement systems. These systems usually work with a number of loudspeakers placed around the subject. The added reflections from the multiple loudspeakers and uncertainties from the subject placement and movement can distort the measurement. This paper presents a psychoacoustic evaluation of individual HRTFs measured with such a system. Three localization listening experiments are performed to quantize the localization ability with individual HRTFs compared to a dummy head measurement. The first experiment is performed to investigate the influence of the pointing method. In the second experiment, the influence of the measurement setup itself is investigated, while the third experiment aims to determine if the errors introduced during the fast measurement are big enough to mask the benefits of individual measurements.
