Abstract

A measurement model based on the interaural cross-correlation coefficient (IACC) that attempts to predict the perceived source width of a range of auditory stimuli is currently under development. It is necessary to combine the predictions of this model with measurements of interaural time difference (ITD) to allow the model to provide its output on a meaningful scale and to allow integration of results across frequency. A detailed subjective experiment was undertaken using narrow-band stimuli with a number of centre frequencies, IACCs and ITDs. Subjects were asked to indicate the perceived position of the left and right boundaries of a number of these stimuli by altering the ITD of a pair of white noise comparison stimuli. It is shown that an existing IACC-based model provides a poor prediction of the subjective results but that modifications to the model significantly increase its accuracy.
