We are developing audio watermarking techniques which enable extraction of embedded data by cell phones. For that we have to embed data onto frequency ranges, where our auditory response is prominent, therefore data embedding will cause much auditory noises. Previously we have proposed applying a two-channel stereo play-back feature, where noises generated by a data embedded left-channel signal will be reduced by the other right-channel signal. However, this proposal has practical problems of restricting extracting terminal location. In this paper, we propose synthesizing the noise reducing right-channel signal with the left-signal and reduces noises completely by generating an auditory stream segregation phenomenon to users. This newly proposed makes the noise reducing right-channel signal unnecessary and supports monaural play-back operations. Moreover, we propose a wide-band embedding method causing dual auditory stream segregation phenomena, which enables data embedding on whole public phone frequency ranges and stable extractions with 3-G mobile phones. From these proposals, extraction precisions become higher than those by the previously proposed method whereas the quality damages of embedded signals become smaller. In this paper we present an abstract of our newly proposed method and experimental results comparing with those by the previously proposed method.
