Abstract
It is likely that experiences of presence and self-motion elicited by binaurally simulated and reproduced rotating sound fields can be degraded by the artifacts caused by the use of generic Head-Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs). In this paper, an HRTF measurement system which allows for fast data collection is discussed. Furthermore, effects of generic vs. individualized HRTFs were investigated in an experiment. Results show a significant increase in presence ratings of individualized binaural stimuli compared to responses to stimuli processed with generic HRTFs. Additionally, differences in intensity and convincingness of illusory self-rotation ratings were found for sub-groups of subjects, formed on the basis of subjects localization performance with the given HRTFs catalogues.
