Invented by Alan Blumlein, in which he called it binaural sound, is used to create a realistic stereo image. The quality depends on the acoustics of the room and size of the sound source. This method works really well with classical music recordings.

Two matched bi-directional (figure-8) microphones positioned 90 degrees from each other. The line bisecting the angle between the two microphones must point towards the sound source.
