The ARI HRTF database contains high-resolution HRTFs of about 150 subjects. Most subjects were measured using in-the-ear microphones, for a few others we used behind-the-ear microphones placed in hearing-aid devices. 1550 positions were measured for each listener including the full azimuthal-space (0° to 360°) and elevations from -30° to +80°. The frontal space has a resolution of 2.5° in the horizontal plane.
