Comparison Between Mono, Stereo, & Binaural From Ambisonics

This video showcases the difference between three sound reproduction techniques – mono, stereo and binaural from Ambisonics. Please, wear your headphones.

Notice how at the beginning the audio is like a point in the middle, then it gains more spaciousness by changing to stereo, and finally – it surrounds you from every side when it’s binaural. Binaural audio lets you experience the recorded moments so naturally, as if you were there – such realistic reproduction cannot be achieved with standard recording techniques.
