Abstract

Concert hall experience at home has been limited to stereo and 5.1 surround sound reproduction. However, these reproduction systems do not convey the spatial properties of the concert hall acoustics in detail, and specifically for headphones the sound tends to be perceived as playing inside the head. The ICHO project introduced in this paper aims to bring an immersive concert hall experience to home listeners. This is realized by using close pick-up of sound sources, spatial room impulse responses, and individualized head related transfer functions; all combined together for spatial sound reproduction with head-tracked headphones. This paper outlines how this goal is going to be achieved and how the quality of the reproduction might be evaluated.
