Default Holophonic sound - scary stuff.

Make sure you have a set of headphones on when you listen to this

This has been around for a while in various forms now

I'm just hoping that it catches on and we can stop seeing shitty "5.1" headphones popping up all over the place.

What's more scary is that people only realise this technique now, has been around for ages.

As snufkin mentioned. Death to "5.1" headphones.

Wow! That is quite impressive! So how do you record this? presumably with two microphones or more???

That first example seemed like the matchbox was behind the listener. Is there an example where the sounds seems to come from in front?

Guys, I'm sitting here at work, running around the office like a nutter trying to find someone with a pair of headphones..

I've never heard of this before, and I am intrigued!

Have to wait until 3PM, the mad dash home.

Interesting indeed! And that's genuine interest too, I'm a lover of HRTF in games, and CMSS2 when I listen to music

I tried it out on my speakers too and it works perfectly. Amazing stuff.

I'm totally depressed by technology that was availble to us in the mid-late 1990's being repackaged as brand new technology in 2006.

And it was done with hardware that was 3-4 times slower than we have now.

Such short memorys the retail public has too!

Oh well, I still have my Aureal MX300 Sound Card that did A3D, that is close to 10 years old now, that sounded as good back then as my Audigy2 ZS does.

gg Creative

gg The free market system

gg Lawyers

And this is what we call progress.

Oh... you guys need to hear some Dallas Simpson's recordings then:

The fireworks recording is brilliant!!!

Headphones are a must with binaural recordings... speakers so not work for this.

Nah, it's more commonly referred to as "marketing"

Basically, it works off the fact that you only have 2 ears, yet you can hear stuff infront, behind, up and down, left and right... So, if the sound is recorded and mixed right, you can get the same effect just using two speakers, IE, headphones.

Do you have an example where the sound comes from in front? - That would be neat.
