The concept of augmented reality audio characterizes techniques where real sound environment is extended with virtual auditory environments and communications scenarios. This article introduces a framework for Wearable Augmented Reality Audio (WARA) based on a specific headset configuration and a real-time audio software system. We will review relevant literature and aim at identifying most potential application scenarios for WARA. Listening test results with a prototype system will be presented.
