I stumbled across this earlier and thought it was really interesting - the BBC have been looking at how to record sound in such a way that it seems more realistic, and the way they have done this is to use a fake head with microphones in the ears. Taking this a step further, they have looked at how sounds change when the head moves, and applied their findings to VR to make it more immersive. Clever stuff!

There's an article about it here:

You have to be wearing headphones ;)
