"Relatively little is known about the perceptual sensitivity of listeners to reverberant energy like that present in most everyday environments. This paper briefly summarizes some of the effects reverberant energy can have on the acoustic signals at the ears, listener perception, and models of auditory processing. The consequences of including realistic reverberation in 3-D sound reproduction systems are discussed in light of these findings."

Findings include: echoes and reverberation are strong cues for judging distance; reverberation increases the chances of the sound source being externalised (when listening via headphones) and enhance the perceived reality of the auditory display. However, reverberation increases localization uncertainty -- experience of the environment and practice on the part of the listener can overcome this disadvantage.
