Investigation of Practical Compensation Method for Bone Conduction Headphones with a Focus on Spatialization

Document Thumbnail

Hearing devices which vibrate around the tragus have been adopted as "bone conduction (BC) headphones", with potential for mixed reality in auditory as well as open-ear headphones using air conduction (AC). However, reproduction of sound images with these devices is yet to be established since the multiple sound/vibration transmission paths are still on exploration. Although relevant findings in human-machine interaction and audiology have been reported recently, there needs more work to bridge these across research areas enough to put into technical implementation. Accordingly, a practical compensation method for spatialization is investigated: combined lumped-parameter circuit model of the transmission pathways of BC to compensate head-related transfer functions for AC. This presentation reports on preliminary results and discussions on possible compensation procedure.
