Free Database of Low Frequency Corrected Head-Related Transfer Functions and Headphone Compensation Filters

Document Thumbnail

A database of publicly available head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) of a KEMAR manikin together with headphone compensation filters for various headphone types is presented. The HRTFs are based on previously published data from Wierstorf et al. (2011) that have additionally been corrected for low frequencies. This compensates for missing information due to low excitation energy in this frequency range during the measurement and allows for shorter impulse responses. A further benefit is demonstrated by the interpolation of HRTFs via magnitude and phase that is only possible with consistent phase information. Both the low-frequency correction as well as the generation of the headphone compensation filters are accompanied by Matlab code to document the processing.
