I read that press release. Here's the dodgy bit...

“Sony is developing an app that will enable users to take photos of their own ears with a smartphone to create an optimized musical experience based on an analysis of the hearing characteristics of user's ears.”

Oh boy.

Don't dismiss this, Pluto. There is plenty of research being done on pinna mapping and the consequent ability to produce filters to recreate direction and height cues with sophisticated algorithms and dsp. Hat's off to Sony!!
