The field of spatial hearing has exploded in the decade or so since Jens Blauert's classic work on acoustics was first published in English. 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 hearing , binaural technology modeling speech enhancement by binaural hearing , and spatial sound-field mapping. The chapter also includes recent research on the precedence effect that provides clear experimental evidence that cognition plays a significant role in spatial hearing. 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 on the physics of the external ear, and the application of signal processing theory to modeling the spatial hearing process. There is an extensive bibliography of more than items.

Its study involves the overlap of acoustics, psychology, psychophysics, physiology, medicine, engineering, architectural design, and musical analysis, and 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 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.

A new fourth chapter has been added to this edition, reviewing work done since 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. The book also includes an extensive and up to date bibliography.

It is a bit technical but is the only way to really get into the spatial hearing anyone interested should read it this is a big reference for alot of other books so read the source!!! Nothing very practical. Looks like some prof trying to impress people with old data. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
