A systematic review of the most appropriate methods of achieving spatially enhanced audio for headphone use

Research Aim:

The goal of RP-01 was an investigation to produce a basis of research for continuing study, identifying an appropriate method of improving spatial awareness of audio for headphone users.

Research Outcome:

The research found issues surrounding the use of pre-user implemented
HRTF data, the issues involved with externalisation being realised over headphones, and the limitations of using binaural recording techniques.

Several elements and challenges involved with spatial audio are discussed.
The research concludes with suggested areas of further research into spatially enhanced audio to allow the research to act as a knowledge base for continuing study.
