Abstract

This study reports on an experiment testing the efficacy of multichannel audio compared to stereo, or binaural, audio in terms of word recall. When asked to single out and recall words from multiple others, Subjects can focus on and recall no more than one at a time, and perform much worse when more than two words are played at once. Subjects recalled words with an accuracy of about 70%, and displayed increased caution and less confidence when presented with a complicated test prior to an easier one.
