3D audio through headphones
What is 3D audio?
3D audio is conceptually similar to 3D vision. You might not have realized: you not only see, you also hear the world in 3D! You don’t just hear plain stereo, you obtain a spatial sense of your surroundings: you discern sounds coming from above from those coming from below, those behind you from those located in front, those far away from those close by. If you think about it, it is actually quite amazing that you can do this with only two ears. And, just like stereo goggles can make you see the world in 3D, stereo headphones can trick your brain into experiencing a 3D soundscape. Say hello to 3D audio.
