Treat yourself to a virtual haircut

by

Before you check out this TOTD make sure you have some earphones to hand! The Virtual Barber Shop is an example of binaural recording. This method of recording uses a special microphone arrangement intended for replay using headphones.

The result is a listening experience that spatially transcends normally recorded stereo, since it accurately reproduces the effect of hearing a sound in person, given the 360° nature of how human ears pick up nuance in the sound waves.

So sit down in the barber’s chair and have a virtual haircut – to be fully immersed in the experience it helps to close your eyes.
