Re: Stereo imaging and headphone: Have we been underestimating our ability to perciev
you will not develop a sense of space that is not there by using headphones all your life.
even if you could you would have to listen to life through headphones too, because you might produce with headphones, but then you take them off and go outside and all the sounds around you are being perceived in proper space rather than through headphones. most people are not concious of it, but its the sounds we hear around us all the time that develop our perceptions.
i think if we were to put headphones on the moment we were born and hear everything in life through headphones it would have some really weird effects on our spacial perception.
