Subjective Assessments of Higher Order Ambisonic Sound Systems in Varying Acoustical Conditions
Results of subjective assessments in source perception using higher order Ambisonics are presented in this paper. Test stimuli include multiple synthetic and naturally recorded sources that have been presented in various horizontal and mixed order Ambisonic listening tests. Using a small group of trained and untrained listening participants, materials were evaluated over various Ambisonic orders, with each scrutinized for localization accuracy, apparent source width and realistic impression. The results show a general preference for 3rd order systems in each of the three test categories: speech, pure tone, and music. Localization results for 7th order show a trend of stable imagery with complex stimuli sources and pure tones in the anechoic environment providing the highest accuracy.
