Abstract: Head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) capture the free-field sound transmission from a sound source to the listeners ears, incorporating all the cues for sound localization, such as interaural time and level differences as well as the spectral cues that originate from scattering, diffraction, and reflection on the human pinnae, head, and body. In this study, HRTFs were acoustically measured and numerically simulated for the FABIAN head-and-torso simulator on a full-spherical and high-resolution sampling grid. HRTFs were acquired for 11 horizontal head-above-torso orientations, covering the typical range of motion of +/-50°. This made it possible to account for head movements in dynamic binaural auralizations. Because of a lack of an external reference for the HRTFs, measured and simulated data sets were cross-validated by applying auditory models for localization performance and spectral coloration. The results indicate a high degree of similarity between the two data sets regarding all tested aspects, thus suggesting that they are free of systematic errors.
