We designed concert scope headphones that are equipped with a projector, an inclination sensor on the top of the headphones, and a distance sensor on the outside right headphone. We previously developed sound scope headphones that enable users to change the sound mixing depending on their head direction. However, the system could not handle images. In contrast, our headphones let the user listening to and watching a music scene scope on a particular part that he or she wants to hear and see. For example, when listening to jazz, one might want to more clearly hear and see the guitar or sax being played. The user can hear the guitar or sax sound from a frontal position by moving their head to the left or right. The user can adjust the distance sensor on the headphones and focus on a particular part they want to hear and see by simply putting their hand behind their ear.
