The Nov. 1 broadcast of “Jonetsu Tairiku” will feature the rare use of a binaural recording system on television — essentially, 3-D for your ears.

The MBS/TBS show focuses on Ichiro Yamaguchi, the lead singer of dance-rock act Sakanaction, and will use binaural recording to introduce his sound projects. The technology itself is meant to reproduce sound to make it seem as if the listener is in the room with the performers as it is being produced, which is why it is sometimes referred to as 360-degree sound. In order to get the full effect, though, the listener should wear a set of headphones.
