Abstract

For a sound source on the median-plane of a binaural system, interaural localization cues are absent. So, for robust binaural localization of sound sources on the median-plane, localization methods need to be designed with this in consideration. We compare four median-plane binaural sound source localization methods. Where appropriate, adjustments to the methods have been made to improve their robustness to real world recording conditions. The methods are tested using different HRTF datasets to generate the test data and training data. Each method uses a different combination of spectral and interaural localization cues, allowing for a comparison of the effect of spectral and interaural cues on median-plane localization. The methods are tested for their robustness to different levels of additive noise and different categories of sound.
