The auditory stimuli were continuous 3D binaural sounds synthesized with nonindividualized HRTFs from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) dataset (Gardner & Martin, 2000), auditory icons (sounds that create an analogy with real-world events and situations), and "earcons" (abstract, symbolic sounds used to facilitate the players' navigation through the complex content of the game) (Csapo and Wersenyi, 2013).
Because they were modifying their position in respect to the active target and the surrounding obstacles, they could perceive changes in both the spectral content of the sound, its intensity, and its localization simulated with HRTFs.
It is also possible that the discrepancy between performance in the free-field condition and performance in the virtual condition was attributable to the use of nonindividualized HRTFs in the generation of the virtual cues.
HRTF measurements stopped and an auditory feedback signal was given when the deviation along the x, y, or z coordinate exceeded 0.
After completion of the free-field HRTF measurements, Sennheiser HD 530 headphones were placed over each participant's ears, and the transfer function from headphone to ear canal was determined for both ears.
The main disadvantages of nonindividualized HRTFs are increased frequency of front/back reversals and more difficulty in simulating elevation (Wightman & Kistler, 1989).
This encoding is accomplished by digitally filtering a sound source by means of a FIR (finite impulse response) filter created from measurements of HRTFs, which represent the direction-dependent modification of a sound source by the person's head, torso, and pinnae (see Wightman and Kistler, 1997, for a review).
