When Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln re-opened at Disneyland in 2001 it did so with a new addition – wireless headphones.
The show’s soundtrack was created as a binaural recording and streamed to an audience full of headphone-wearing guests.
The binaural recording technique is really neat stuff and brings a new kind of realism to the listening experience! However you really do need to be wearing a pair of headphones to hear the effect. Speakers just won’t cut it.
Check out this virtual barbershop binaural demo – and make sure you’re wearing headphones when you do. It’s insane, man. Insane! Close your eyes and listen as they put a bag on your head, clip at your hair, and whisper in your ear!
