An open dataset of measured HRTFs perturbed by headphones

An acoustic transfer function dataset is presented that contains the influence on the head-related transfer function (HRTF) of headphones worn by a dummy-head. The database contains the HRTFs of a KEMAR dummy head in the horizontal plane with an angular resolution of 5 degrees, as well as the perturbed HRTFs of 34 different headphones of all types and functionalities, such as over-ear, on-ear, in-ear, and earplug headphones, with and without active noise control and hear-through functionality. Each headphone was measured a total of 5 times after repositioning it. The data set allows partial inter- and intra-individual investigations, for example of the angle-dependent insertion loss, since some headphone models also occur several times in the data set due to their possible operation modes.
