Abstract

Binaural audio is growing in relevance due to an increase in mobile media consumption (and therefore headphone listening) and due to an increase in the popularity of immersive technology as a whole. With this comes an increasing need to evaluate the quality of experience provided by binaural audio. Overall listening experience (OLE) is an affective measure used in the evaluation of audio and can be regarded as the ‘quality of experience’ in the context of audio consumption. In this paper, a web-based study is presented that investigates the influence of binaural audio on OLE. Results show that, for the stimuli and participants used, binaural processing influences OLE in a small but significant way compared to stereo headphone reproduction.
