Sounds like a guy walking back and forth while brushing his teeth

Didn't blow me away.

I wear earphones alot and get the same effect when listening to music...especially Pink Floyd.

May have been better with a music sample, I dunno.

That one is interesting as well although I don't like it when people spit into my ear when speaking.

I believe that all you have to do is wear a microphone on each ear (I've seen glasses with microphones mounted to the frames near the ears). Each mic is mono - the one on the right ear records the right audio channel, and the one on the left ear records the left audio channel. You just record whatever while set up this way, and you end up with something that, when played through headphones, sounds just like it would sound if you were right there using your two ears to listen to it.

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

the real "kunstkopf" (artificial head) recordings of the 70s were done with the membranes at eardrum level, with anatomically correct "ears" and a "chest" resonator attached to the head, which apparently strongly influences the perceived sound.

Amazing stuff.

I tried to send a message thru that post to quit stalking me but you didn't get it.

Instead you're bent on derailing this thread.

Now go away.

I've been meaning to listen to Steven King's binaural recording of The Mist. Maybe one of these days...

EDIT: There's apparently a difference between holophony and binaural recording. I can certainly hear it.

Pretty cool! But i always had the impression that the matchbox was sidewards or behind my head, never in front of it

That's how it sounded to me too. However, about halfway through the recording, it not only sounded to the right side of me, but it sounded as if it was going down (and not moving from side to side) and then up until it was above the original point. At this higher point, the sound traveled above my head to the left.
"You rise," he said, "like Aurora."

1) Earphones and canalphones may work better than circumaural and supra-aural headphones.
2) Closing ones eyes can enhance the visualization of the sound space.

The speakers on my TV do the same thing with only the two speakers in the set, it is really cool.

I think that's done by simulating the effect the shape of the ear has on sound waves coming in at different angles. so if a sound is supposed to be behind you, it puts a filter on it that makes it "equivalent" to an actual sound behind you that was reflected around your ear and into your ear canal. At least, I think it was something like that... my dad explained it to me a while ago and I probably don't remember it quite right.

I think it's Italian, since voce = voice in Italian. It sounds like she's saying "Né vicino, né vicino, suono molto..." but then I become too excited to make out the rest.
