This paper investigates to which extent the tails of left and right binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs) can be replaced by white Gaussian noise that has been processed to have the same energy decay relief and interaural coherence as the original BRIRs' tail. For this purpose BRIRs were generated consisting of two parts where the first part is taken from the original BRIR and the second part is filtered and coherence-matched noise. A subjective test was carried out to investigate how the perceived similarity between original and modeled BRIRs decreases as the split point between the parts approaches the direct sound part of the BRIRs. Also, frequency-dependent and conventional frequency-independent interaural coherence matching were compared.
