Anecdotally, normal hearing listeners can attend to a single sound source in the presence of other sound sources by forming auditory objects. This is commonly referred to as the cocktail party effect. It is known that listeners use, among others, interaural disparities in time and intensity (referred to as ITD and ILD, respectively) to localize a sound source. An open question is, however, how ITD and ILD information is integrated over frequency, and how streaming affects auditory object formation using interaural disparities. ITD weighting functions were previously derived using inverted sensitivity thresholds of narrowband signals (Stern et al., 1988). This method does not take binaural interference (McFadden and Pasanen, 1976) into account and might not be applicable to more realistic broadband signals.
