Interesting Article on Hearing! :)

I was wondering how people can distinguish whether a sound is coming from in front of or behind them.  It turns out that your brain has evolved to take into account the attenuation of certain frequencies depending on their location and does some ultra fast processing to work out roughly where the noise came from! Now I want to try binaural recording… I do have a phone with stereo mics, however it would look odd to attach fake ears to the sides.
