Pinna Filtering

Pinna filtering is the filtering process that occurs in the human ear's pinna; the funnel that sticks out on either side of the head. This filtering process is important in recreating sounds in VR, because the pinna collects directional and distance information from sounds, in the way it distorts and channels them.

Thus, if you are going to bypass the pinna to send sounds to a person in VR, whether via earphones or implants, the pinna filtering needs to be recreated as distortion in the sound, to help maintain realism.
