quick and cheap setup for localization experiment

Dear all,

I've been asked by a doctor of the local hospital to organize a set of psychoacoustical tests for two teenagers that will receive the cochlear implant the next month. The idea is to test the auditory skills before and after the implant. (Note that the girls will receive the implant in one ear only at the beginning.)

I was thinking also to get a measure of localization skills. And here come the questions: 1) can a lateralization experiment (i.e., performed with headphones) be a reliable estimate of localization skills? 2) does anybody have suggestions about a possible DIY, easy-to-build and cheap setup for a localization experiment? (pictures are welcome)

Thank you all in advance,
