AbstractAmbisonics to binaural rendering has become the de facto format for processing and reproducing spatial sound scenes, but direct capture and software generated output is limited to low orders; limiting the accuracy of psycho-acoustic cues and therefore the illusion of a ‘real-world’ experience. Applying a practical method through the use of acoustic modelling software, this study examines the potential of using very high horizontal only Ambisonic orders (up to 31st) to binaural rendering. A novel approach to the scene capturing process is implemented to realise these very high orders for a reverberant space with head-tracking capabilities. A headphone based subjective test is conducted, evaluating specific attributes of a presented auditory scene to determine when a limit to the perceived auditory differences of varying orders has been reached.
