Previous studies give contradicting evidence as to the importance of head movements in localisation. In this study head movements were shown to increase localisation response accuracy in elevation and azimuth. For elevation, it was found that head movement improved localisation accuracy in some cases and that when pinna cues were impeded the significance of head movement cues was increased. For azimuth localization, head movement reduced front-back confusions. There was also evidence that head movement can be used to enhance static cues for azimuth localisation. Finally, it appears that head movement can increase the accuracy of listeners’ responses by enabling an interaction between auditory and visual cues.
