Abstract:Current sound technology does not mimic the human ability to perceive sound from all directions. I made an apparatus to find the minimum angle people can distinguish two different sounds at various distances, both up/down and front/back. I found that people can hear equally well on both planes, but the angle of discrimination widens the closer the sound sources get to the ear.
