Abstract

Speech intelligibility (SI) is known to be affected by the relative spatial position between target and interferers. The benefit of a spatial separation is, along with other factors, related to the head-related transfer function (HRTF). The HRTF is
individually different and thus, the cues that affect SI might also be different. In the current study, an auditory model was employed to predict SI with various HRTFs and at different angles on the horizontal plane. The predicted SI threshold was found to be largely different across HRTFs. Thus, individual listeners might have different access to SI cues, dependent on their HRTF
