Isn't it true you can get de-sensitised to this type of recording though, and it'll no longer feel 3D?
 
Does this technology have some limits, because of the way it is recorded, that music can sound a bit... flat?
From listening to Pearl Jam's Binaural CD though, it doesn't sound flat though. In fact, its a bit... disorientating, but some instruments sound processed due to the technique used.
 

From the Caves of the Iron Mountain sounds awesome by the way!


I often have trouble with front/back positioning, I think that might be something to do with the limitations of the human ear. This Wikipedia page is interesting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_sound_localization , have a look at the Cone of Confusion, it seems that we need to be able to move our heads or have some other external cues to identify sound position with accuracy.
 
It wouldn't surprise me if the brain learnt to ignore binaural headphone recordings after a while and started to depend more on visual cues for positioning after long periods of listening with earphones, but I don't know if you would become de-sensitised, it doesn't seem to become desensitised to stereo (that I've noticed anyway). I think you are likely to get the most out of the illusion only if your eyes are closed so that your brain can't use any visual cues.
 
I bought the Strauss and Stravinsky from iTunes yesterday, I haven't had a chance to listen them properly yet, it's heavy stuff for me, I don't know much about classical music.

Thank you for the suggestions - I too bought the Strauss on iTunes and find it exquisite!

Has any of you tried a Holosync CD or something similar? It uses binaural tones, I believe they use a 10Hz difference for each channel and the brain can't really tell the difference and tries to adjust it giving a very odd sensation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats). The holosync idea with healing properties and amazing meditation etc is comple rubbish in my opinion but the binaural cranial massage is very pleasant!

Can's Saw Delight was also recorded binaurally.  I believe that they are also re released on SACD now.

Ah: I made the recording with a styropor head. The mic capsules are Primo EM 172s, and powered by a Sony PCM M10, combined with a Sony NEX3

"links removed"
 
lets see if this works. I uploaded 3 samples (above links) in mp3 format so it should be compatible.
 
Let me know what you think. I will remove them soon.
