Abstract: The validation of different acquisition methods for head-related transfer functions (HRTF) often involves a direct comparison of HRTF spectra. Differences regarding monaural cues (i.e., single-ear differences between the datasets) as well as binaural cues (i.e., changes in inter-aural cross-correlation, time and level differences) can be identified between the HRTF sets. In this work, a listening test paradigm is presented that examines the contribution of monaural differences to the audibility of HRTF changes, while minimizing the variation of binaural cues. The reasoning behind the approach as well as its validity are discussed. A parametric model for just noticeable differences, developed based on the experimental results, is further introduced.
