This paper presents a subjective assessment of the plausibility of a non-individualised dynamic binaural sound system, created using a dataset of binaural room impulse responses measured with a dummy head microphone. A signal detection theory analysis was carried out on the results, to assess the sensory difference between the simulation and reality. The design and objective validation of the system is also presented. A small but meaningful sensory difference was observed between real and binaurally simulated loudspeaker sounds.
