binaural : Literally, "having two ears." Because humans have two ears spaced apart by the width of the head, the human hearing mechanism can make use of amplitude, phase (arrival time) and spectral (frequency response) cues to help determine the direction from which a perceived sound is coming. See binaural synthesis.

binaural synthesis : A type of recording-playback system where two microphone inputs are specially processed to simulate the frequency-dependent time delays that would occur between the ears on a human head. The binaural localization cues are preserved, and the listener is able to achieve localization of sounds as if s/he were actually at the site where the recording was made, despite the fact that binaural recording has no ability to accurate image the sound.. Also called dummy head recording.
