|The rise of immersive sound for XR applications has spawned a paradigm shift from utilizing audio as an emotive source to that of delivering information. When designing immersive experiences, directional sound is integral to ensure accuracy and retention on assignment. Psychoacoustic theory and UX/UI design principles influence the development of auditory events in an experience.
