The spatial hearing experiments can be simulated using high-fidelity headphones. But these simulated experiments do not account for individual variations and are difficult to investigate when the listener is wearing hearing devices. Hence, the free-field systems are ideal for spatial hearing experiments. However, these systems are not readily available and must be customized based on experimental needs. This paper provides a brief overview of a spatial hearing research facility that is customized to perform experiments on individuals with normal hearing and hearing aid users. • This setup enables the assessment of spatial acuity with 10⁰ precision in the horizontal plane. • The laboratory's universal design enables modifications based on experimental needs with minimum effort. • The signal processing and response acquisition systems are custom designed using MATLAB.
