Its study involves the overlap of acoustics, psychology, psychophysics, physiology, medicine, engineering, architectural design, and hdaring analysis, and its applications include The chapter also includes recent research on the precedence effect that provides clear experimental evidence that cognition plays a significant role in spatial hearing.

Thus it is all the more a pleasure to acclaim the author of this first comprehensive monograph, and to recognize how successful he has been in his lucid organization and presentation of so much information. The Psychophysics of Human Sound Localization.

One kind is the hearing we are born with Part 5 Progress and trends since Part 3 Spatial hearing with multiple sound sources and in enclosed spaces: The book also includes an extensive and up to date bibliography.

Its study involves the overlap of acoustics, sptial, psychophysics, physiology, medicine, engineering, architectural design, and musical analysis, blauertt its applications include the design of speaker systems, concert halls and other interiors, and the development of noise-reduction systems.


This book updates and expands an interdisciplinary survey and text first published in Germany in The remaining four chapters in this comprehensive reference cover auditory research procedures and psychometric methods, spatial hearing with one sound source, spatial hearing with multiple sound sources and in enclosed spaces, and progress and trends from the first German edition to the first English edition — work that includes research spatiial the physics of the external ear, and the application of signal processing theory to modeling the spatial hearing process.

The field of spatial hearing has exploded in the decade or so since Jens Blauert’s classic work on acoustics was blauett published in English. The richness of this auditory space, much of it based on cues at or below the edge of conscious awareness, is explored in great detail by a distinguished expert in spatial hearing.

Communication Acoustics Jens Blauert.

Part 2 Spatial hearing with one sound source: Orlowski Applied Acoustics There are two kinds of hearing. Acoustics for Communication Jens Blauert. The other kind of hearing is learned, and develops as an elaborate form of pattern recognition in which the ear and brain cooperate The Journal of the Institute for Radio Engineering wrote of the first edition that “the literature in this field is so fragmented and scattered that it is virtually inaccessible to most audio engineers, telecommunications technicians, and others for whom it is of vital interest.

This revised edition adds a new chapter that describes developments in such areas as auditory virtual reality an important field of application that is based mainly on the physics of spatial hearingbinaural technology modeling speech enhancement by binaural hearingand spatial sound-field mapping.

Spatial Hearing

Spatial hearing refers to the capacity of listeners to infer information about direction and distance from auditory signals. It includes material on the physics of the external ear, monoaural and interaural attributes of ear input signals, and applications to architectural acoustics and “dummy-head” stereophony.
