We propose a novel method for full-sphere binaural sound source localization that is designed to be robust to real world recording conditions. A mask is proposed that is designed to remove diffuse noise and early room reflections. The method makes use of the interaural phase difference (IPD) for lateral angle localization and spectral cues for polar angle localization. The method is tested using different HRTF datasets to generate the test data and training data. The method is also tested with the presence of additive noise and reverberation. The method outperforms the state of the art binaural localization methods for most testing conditions.
