The Binaural Collection

What exactly are binaural recordings? Binaural recordings reproduce the sound the same way humans hear it. This effect can only be fully reproduced when listening through headphones.

Wikipedia - Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate properly over stereo speakers.
