This paper describes the theoretical fundamentals and the preliminary results of the implementation of a perceptual model for human sound localization for the evaluation of 3D audio systems. Recent work undertaken in ISVR33 has led to the development of a biologically inspired auditory signal processing model that gives remarkable accuracy in the prediction of human localization of acoustic sources. Nevertheless, the model relies only on some auditory cues, i.e. the binaural cues, and as a consequence is able to predict only the location of sources in the horizontal plane. This paper reviews the basis of the previous model and presents preliminary results of an enhanced perceptual model that takes into consideration other cues, such as the spectral and dynamic cues, in addition to the classical binaural cues, in order to predict the location of 3D sounds.
