Previous literature demonstrates two key components required for the accurate reproduction of a 3-dimensional sound field over headphones: head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) and headphone compensation filters (HCFs). This study seeks to supplement an already extensive body of work with a new methodology for the capture and evaluation of individualized binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs) and HCFs. The results of a double-blind listening test corroborate earlier findings regarding the interaction of BRIR and HCF source on binaural audio quality. Finally, the perceptual advantages of a fully individualized binaural rendering procedure are reported.
