Abstract

A new method to model the HRTF's(Head-Related Transfer Function), which could give improvement of the sound localization accuracy using the spatial effects by the reflected sound wave transfer characteristics, is proposed. When using the HRTF model having reflected sound wave transfer characteristics, the accuracy of sound localization was quite improved up to about 23%, compared with using the direct wave transfer characteristics only. Furthermore, it is verified that the spatial impression could be a factor to enhance the ability of sound localization.
