This is a exam project where I demonstrate the binaural effect that allows 3d movements within stereo through headphones.
Switch to 720p for best results!
Results may vary since binaural sound is not an exact science:
Binaural sound works by imitating the filtering of sound that happens before it hits your brain. Your earlobes, hair, shoulders, face, cranium etc all filter everything you hear. It's how you can hear that a car is approaching from your back and not the front. The thing is we are all differently proportioned, so one binaural production will never work for everyone. Sorry to those who miss out.
I used both binaural recordings (one mic in each of my ears) for the rain recordings, and I've used a program that mimics the effect on some of the other synthetic sounds.
Shutting your eyes may help. But yea, the reason it may not work for some of you is that this was based off my physics (skinny nerd physics)
