6.07  auditory localization; localization. Determination by a subject of the apparent direction and distance, direction alone, or distance alone, of a sound source.

Annotation         Auditory localization in a horizontal or azimuthal plane is facilitated by interaural phase or time difference cues at lower frequencies and by interaural sound pressure level difference cues at upper frequencies. The crossover frequency for the dominance of auditory localization cues is about 1500 Hz.
