    New AES paper from Facebook Reality Labs: Listener-Preferred Headphone Frequency Response for Stereo and Spatial Audio Content

    When spatial audio content is presented over headphones, the audio signal is typically filtered with binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs). An accurate virtual auditory space presentation can be achieved by flattening the headphones’ frequency response. However, when presenting stereo music...

    New Q Active 200 and Q Active 400 from Q Acoustics

    https://www.qacoustics.co.uk/activerange Interesting that they use BMRs in a small vertical array assisted by woofers, so a kind of F.A.S.T. (= full range and subwoofer assisted) array.

    Basic Introduction to Room Acoustics video by Geoff Martin from B&O

    His video description: "This is an introduction to some basic concepts and vocabulary in the general area of room acoustics - with explanations and live demos. I make a couple of sweeping statements in here - but the idea is to help to provide an intuitive understanding of what's going on...

    Comparing Headphone Measurement Systems

    Full article Intro This is a study of different headphone measurement systems. Each system here is investigated based on the average error and standard deviation compared to the reference measurement. The reference measurement in this case is the measurement done by oratory1990 with the same...

    Some comments from Floyd Toole about room curve targets, room EQ and more

    Room curve targets Every so often it is good to review what we know about room curves, targets, etc. Almost 50 years of double-blind listening tests have shown persuasively that listeners like loudspeakers with flat, smooth, anechoic on-axis and listening-window frequency responses. Those with...
