Century-old Technology Binaural Audio

Hi Innovators!

I discovered something awesome today! And I couldn’t stop myself from writing about this! Have you heard of Binaural Audio? Well For those like me(who haven’t heard till now or aren’t sure of the term), I am telling you, its Super Amazing. First time I heard it when one of these audio clips got viral in my office. Listen to it out from YouTube! But put your Headphones on!

Isn’t it amazing? But do you know the technology, is not novel. Its century old!

Well I heard this and i found this flawless and amazing! Its like 3D hearing. Its a simulation of how our human ears hear sounds. As per Wikipedia.org,

With a simple recording method, two microphones are placed 18 cm (7″) apart facing away from each other. This method will not create a real binaural recording. The distance and placement roughly approximates the position of an average human’s ear canals.

Although that’s not all to the recording method.Wikipedia.org

A typical binaural recording unit has two high-fidelity microphones mounted in a dummy head, inset in ear-shaped molds to fully capture all of the audio frequency adjustments (known as head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) in the psychoacoustic research community) that happen naturally as sound wraps around the human head and is “shaped” by the form of the outer and inner ear.

Have you come across videos like Ultra DeepMeditation , Extremely Powerful Third Eye OpeningStudy Aid for Super Learning and Memory? Well they use the same Binaural Audio Technique! Scientific term for these Brain Teasing Sounds is Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR). According to an article in The Independent by Rhodri Marsden

There’s something about the way that the presenters take great care over explaining manifestly obvious concepts; I once saw a man talk for 10 minutes about the benefits of purchasing a pack of 10 blank video cassettes, and it left my head gently buzzing in a way that’s hard to describe. The more gentle and redundant their explanations are, the more pleasure I get. I’ve never known why, and I still don’t know why -– but thanks to the internet I’ve discovered that someone has given it a name: ASMR, or Auto-Sensory Meridian Response.

Well are those presenter playing with our minds?? I cant tell if its true or nor but I really cant help listening to these recording. There’s this one in Wikipedia Article, by the name of One Man Rumba, Seems so inventively recorded. But this too is by the same Binaural Recording Technique.

 Well I will end this now before I Get addicted! But don’t you stop your Innovate mind from exploring any idea.
