Dataset of In-the-Ear and Behind-the-Ear Binaural Room Impulse Responses Used for Spatial Listening with Hearing Implants

Document Thumbnail

The contribution presents a dataset of binaural room impulse responses (BRIRs) using a KEMAR head and torso simulator. Sixteen positions around the head are recorded in three rooms with differing room acoustics. The rooms represent a standardized listening lab, a room for rehabilitation of hearing diseases, and a large sized room. Additionally to the in-the-ear recordings, behind-the-ear BRIRs are recorded to simulate the microphone positions of hearing aid devices. The dataset is used in a research project to develop innovative methods and technologies for spatial listening and speech intelligibility using cochlear implants and bone conduction hearing aids. The dataset enables binaural resynthesis of different directions and rooms for research and rehabilitation.
