I remember they had a room full of headphones playing things like this at Universal Studios a few years ago attached to some Drew Carrey '4D' majigger.

I can't really see anywhere that this could be used in movies or games that regular surround sound couldn't already offer, though.

Headphones are more personal, because they're right next to you, creating the illusion of reality. Surround speakers you're still inside a room and the illusion is broken. IMMERSION. PSYCHOLOGY. SCIENCEY STUFF.

Hmm, thinking about it, there are a few movies shot in first person, like Rec or Cloverfield (That might be the entire list of any worth watching) that this might bring some element of immersion to, especially since they're horror movies. However, it seems like the novelty would wear off extremely quickly. Like 3D.

It's a novelty you'd have to do RIGHT. Modern day 3D still have its place, and when used appropriately (like in Avatar), it does wonders. When its just slapped on for a higher movie ticket price, then the novelty suffers.

As a sound engineer/designer in training, I found this whole thing utterly fantastic, and I had all sorts of sound guy type nerdiness while listening to this. he's right too, you know, it is basically as simple as he's making it: one mic on the left, and one mic on the right. Of course, you could do this manually in a sound editing program using the pan function and tweaking the effects/EQ to mimic reality, but then that gets into another realm of "it depends"...

Okay, I'm an audio geek, and I liked this. :lol:

Me gusta. That is some solid sound design. Crazy stuff.

Except damn, I'm twitchy in real life when sounds come close to my ear, this made me twitch several times.

XD thats nothing to be embaressed about Chaos

What I'd really like to know is what kind of mics they used for this little project. My guess would be a pair of condenser mics with a cardioid pickup pattern, facing away from each other, possibly with some insulating object between them to simulate the acoustics of a "head" there. Though a good pair of dynamic microphones could probably have also been used.
