BBC Radio is launching an experiment that will offer surround sound through standard headphones.
From today, a Christmas service from the BBC archives will be available online in a ‘binaural’ format that creates realistic surround sound through ordinary headphones.
The Radio 3 website will offer a recording of Nine Lessons and Carols from 2007 in binaural sound until the end of the Christmas period. The service was recorded in surround sound as an experiment by BBC engineers and processed to create binaural audio by BBC Research and Development.
Listeners can simply plug their standard headphones into any computer with a stereo output and then stream the specially processed audio, which should make them feel as if they are hearing the music from speakers around them, not just their headphones. There are six different surround settings to choose from, to suit different types of headphones and head shape.
