Adding to Peter's comments: 1. Loudspeakers and "real" sound sources have very different directivity. 2. To date, I have never heard a recording that sounds like real life. The quality is highly dependent on the equipment used. Some mics&headphones work better for music, others better for everyday sounds. 3. I've made my best binaural recordings of everyday sounds using SoundMan OKM II ear microphones. 4. I've been trying to replicate a study we did with blind people, on how they could determine the size and quality of rooms they were in and objects in front of them. They were quite successful in the first study, but so far, in the replication using recorded or synthesized sound, it doesn't work [yet]. /Mikael Mcgrath, R., Waldmann , T., Fernström, M.
