Grab Your Headphones…Seriously

Wow, just Wow. You have got to check this out. Make sure you are wearing headphones for the full experience. I would label this High Definition Audio. Click the link below.

Incredible Auditory Illusions

These super clear audio files are called holophony (holophonic sound recordings) and are designed to be listened to with headphones for the best effect. They have been recorded with a dummy head that has two microphones, one in each ear. The shape of the head and ears are designed to be similar to a human head to most closely replicate real human hearing. It’s pretty incredible.

Grab your headphones and have a listen. While the content itself isn’t that engaging, the sound effects will probably have you listening a second time.

  1. Glad you liked it Apropos and thanks for the link.

    It was truly a dynamic listening event.

    At one point (with the box of matches being shaken) that the sound was coming from beneath me.

    Very cool!

    Best,
    LK
