The authors use 3D sound to help navigate an immersive virtual environment and report results of user tests obtained with a game-like application. The results show that auditory cues help in navigation, and auditory navigation is possible even without any visual feedback. The best performance is obtained in audiovisual navigation where auditory cues indicate the approximate direction and visual cues help in the final approach.
