    It is wonderful — your brain cannot help but trip over itself
    in a frenzy of confusion, for the sound is so realistic that it
    thinks the experience is truly taking place.
    I actually flinched and shivered a few times. Brilliant.

    The matchbox one sounded the coolest to me.

    All were awesome though.

    There is definitely a 3D effect but the sounds all sound like they are from behind. I’d be impressed with sounds that have more frontal sounds.

    it’s a real shame the bitrate is so low !

    I remember listening to a demo 7″ record, yes vinyl, by sennheiser about 30 years ago. It was just like this. A woman’s voice, a church bell, birds singing etc.

    The cover of the record showed a dummy’s head with a microphone in each ear.

    It’s definitely not a new idea!

  14. Ayesh 6 years ago

    Believe me, when I first hear that Virtual Haircut, I thought someone knocks my door…
