  abstract  = {Generally, in order to create 3D sound using binaural
systems, we use head related transfer functions (HRTF) including the
information of sounds which is arrived to our ears. But it can decline
some three-dimensional effects in the area of a cone of confusion
between front and back directions, because of the characteristics of
In this paper, we propose a new method to use psychoacoustics
theory that reduces the confusion of sound image localization. In the
method, HRTF spectrum characteristic is enhanced by using the
energy ratio of the bark band. Informal listening tests show that the
proposed method improves the front-back sound localization
characteristics much better than the conventional methods},
