This project produced a pair of multiple driver headphones which are intended to reproduce ambisonic audio for the listener. Three discrete drivers are placed in each side of the headphones, arranged in a triangle surrounding each ear, allowing sound to be localized in a 360 degrees sound field. The second step of this process was to add a gyroscopic sensor to the headphones which tracks the movement of the user’s head. Information from this sensor is delivered to an encoding program which modulates the audio based on the user’s head position.
