3D Sound in Virtual Reality

The current project aims to examine the effects of three dimensional sound on presence and parasocial relationship. Our research team seeks to investigate the impact of virtually realistic sound (i.e., 3D sound) on the overall experience in virtual reality. We employ “head-tracking“ function to realize more natural sound. In addition, the design of the current project also comprises a temporal synchronicity dimension.
