Immersive audio test: Binaural or MS ?



0:00 left right top bottom front rear (with 360radar)
0:17 same with small acoustics (with 360reverb)
0:26 same larger acoustics
0:41 individual 1st order Ambisonics W Y Z X announcement
1:05 1st order Y Z X announcement, fast looping – Binaural or MS ?

Use to find out what is decoded from ambisonics and sent to your headphones:

A- Binaural-turning (best immersive experience)
audio does turn when image is dragged or phone/goggles turn
from 1:05 on , when you look at the horizon, you hear (softly) Z.
reverb sounds considerably more ‘immersive) than B

B- MS-turning (lesser immersive experience)
audio does turn when image is dragged or phone/goggles turn
from 1:05 on, when you look at the horizon, you do NOT hear Z.
reverb sounds rather mono-ish from 0:26 on

C- Stereo-static (L = W+Y, R = W-Y) (no immersive experience)
audio does not turn when image is dragged or phone/goggles turn
at 0:00 you do not hear LEFT in your right headphone
from 1:05 on you only hear Y
