Both auditory and non-auditory factors affect the ability for a sound designer to manipulate auditory localization, distance, and environmental context perception. The influence and possible detrimental effects of room acoustics, listening position, and spatial and temporal asynchronies are reviewed. Different approaches to spatial evaluation are reviewed in light of the demands of the application context.
