VR audio is binaural, which means a different audio signal is supported to each ear to create a three-dimensional (3D) sound field. We will know how this occurred.

 

The VR Experience

Users mistakenly took their headphones off and thought someone was at their door - that is VR sound. It feels that VR sound is all around its head. When the user hears a VR book, the first thing that comes to mind is a movie. From a visual perspective, the VR users feel that they are part of the scene.

When listeners put on a headphone, play the book, and listen to the audio; the sounds that are portrayed in a story is an amazing experience. Hears the footsteps, drums, screeching noise, deep breathing, scary tones, and so on. These effects are added to the book to intensify listener’s emotion. It is also possible to add a background music for a more intensifying emotion that matches the scene.

As listener puts the VR headset on and play the book, he will be immersed with a scenic view that is being described on every page or chapter. Also, the sounds that are described in a book are also a part of an immersive experience, not interfering the audio. That is the sound effects and background music will be added to the book to intensify the listener’s emotion and matches the scene. VR audio presents some challenges and exciting opportunities.
