Equipping Your Home Recording Studio
inaural stereo attempts to mimic the human hearing system with a dummy head (sometimes face, shoulders and chest too) with two omnidirectional microphones placed in artificial ears just like a real human head. It works well, but only on headphones. A binaural recording played on speakers doesn’t work because the two channels mix on their way to the listener, spoiling the effect. There have been a number of systems attempting to make binaural recordings work on loudspeakers but none has become popular.
