Cool Binaural Demo

I really like this binaural demo because it has some vivid examples of getting accurate spatial perception. Because you're "virtually getting your hair cut" you get the sound of sheers and other interesting sound not only around your head, both near and far, but also from above. This recording makes it easy to experience the unique "I heard it outside my head, just like in real life" qualities of binaural.

Additionally, this might be a good track to use if you're trying to figure out which pair of headphones is the best match for these recordings. In this vein of "calibration" I'll be posting a track soon too that you can use to kind of determine which headphones you use based on the properties of my specific recording setup.
