SpiN3D: Speech in Noise in a virtual 3D Audio-Environment

Many individuals have difficulties understanding speech in adverse listening situations. Current experimental paradigms lack naturalistic real-life conditions, especially sound source separation in 3D. 

We aim to construct several naturalistic scenarios with ascending complex/difficult listening conditions in 3D-Audio, including neurophysiology, cognition and hearing.
