This paper presents an experimental evaluation of the robustness of cross-talk cancelers in real listening conditions. Performance of the system with respect to channel separation and size of the equalisation zones has been analysed. A system for head-related cross-talk cancellation of two-channel audio signals was implemented in a slightly reverberant listening room. Measurements in and around the listening position were carried out in order to evaluate the performance of the system. In order to improve performance, other configurations were tried on.
