I just discovered something incredible: the holophonic sound. An incredible sound of realism, which transports you to a beach or under the storm ...
You can listen to it with headphones, it's the perfect hearing illusion. But a demonstration is better than a long geek speech… Follow the steps below instead.
1. Connect a headset to your computer and place the earphones on your little ears. 2. Click on one of the readers below. 3. Close your eyes and let the sound transport you.

I borrow these audio extracts and the explanations on the holophonic sound from this post dating from 2008, published on DéblogToi → Holophonic sound. You will find many other sounds to listen to by clicking on this link.
Holophony is a technique for recording and reproducing sounds that mimics the way our human ears and brains work. Two microphones are placed on each side of a head-mannequin, stack at ear level.
They thus record the sound in relief, as we do naturally with our two ears. The distance between the ears and the speed of propagation of the sound create a tiny difference: interpreted by our brain, it is what allows us to distinguish if a sound comes from the right or from the left, if it approaches or s 'distant…
The holophony recreates this gap, our brain does the rest and we really have the impression of being at the heart of the scene by listening to the sounds thus recorded.
Listen again to the little pedagogical play from the virtual hairdresser. It is really the most striking!
