This does not work with Skyrim Special Edition, there is a seperate mod for that: Link

Overview


This mod enables true 3D sound for Skyrim by using a so called HRTF to simulate binaural hearing using normal stereo headphones. You will hear exactly from which direction a sound is coming from.

This mod will give you an advantage over regular surround headphones by simulating how real physical sound is perceived by your brain through a HRTF. Something normal surround like 7.1 can't do is sound that comes from above or below.

Some technical inside how this works: HRTF on Wikipedia

Check out the video demonstration:




Installation

DO NOT USE ANY MOD MANAGER TO INSTALL THIS! COPY THE FILES MANUALLY.

  1. Extract the files to the Skyrim installation directory
  2. Launch the game and enjoy!

It is recommended to disable any other surround sound features of your headset or soundcard.
You will only get the desired effect if you use headphones!

If you have surround headphones (5.1/7.1) make sure you disable any surround processing.
Two channels (stereo) are sufficient for this mod to work.
Any further surround processing will distort the effect.

You have to make sure that you have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (the x86 version) installed.

Uninstalling

Remove the files from the Skyrim installation directory.
