The file hrtfdoc contains a detailed description of the data and the measurement technique. It is also available online as an html document (hrtfdoc.html). It may also be obtained through the Media Lab as Perceptual Computing Technical Report #280. Note that the diffuse-field equalized HRTFs, 3D audio program, MATLAB scripts, and Windows zip format files were added to this archive after the documentation was written.
The Windows zip format files were generously provided by Robert Cain.
