great sound design but no cigar on the binaural front - thats really
not
going to get solved until a quick and convenient way of measuring
HRTFs is
designed - I have several in case any millionaires out there are
interested
At the recent AES Exhibition in NYC, IDA was shown:

Individualized HRTFs, using a smartphone, for under $500.


Someone I trust had his done, and he says it finally allowed him to
disambiguate between front and rear.

Looks interesting - anthropometric approach.

I had mine done last week, after a few attempts at shooting a suitable
video file (it looks easy to do, but it's not). The resulting 3D model
is also not as good as the ones shown in the promotional video, so I
will probably try again because I suspect that a better video would
help to produce a better 3D model, therefore a better HRTF profile.

I'm still in the process of evaluating the SOFA file I received (in my
free time, something I should continue tomorrow). So far the results
are very interesting; it does work. I will try to compare it with some
generic HRTFs, and I will report here.

One of my problem is the lack of software to use a SOFA file. My
evaluation tool is now JSAmbisonics, because it's free (as in speech).
I guess I could also use the ambiX binaural player, but that would be
more work.

Let us know how you get on with height.... I also wonder how much ground
and shoulder reflections will count and if subjective visual/cognitive
assessments of environment affect localisation in a significant way -
interesting to see. If anthropometrics alone are enough.
