Well, as has been the point, the sound of some given (real/virtual)
source might yet be similar, however, the actual _location_ of the (r/v)
source will greatly differ (e.g., as to directionality, "level of
presence") ... -- Sorry, I for my modest part can only report some
opposed experiences : (personal) amazement might sometimes rather have
been due to the fact that it is (almost) always well distinguishable
whether the sound in question does come (directly) from some loudspeaker
or yet from another potential (inside/outside) source, even in cases
where it does "mix" well with the (context of the) speaker's sound
itself (e.g., in pitch, "rhythm", ... ; concerning sirens as well as
birds). This should apply, however, and quite naturally, less to case
"b)", i.e., when being in a different room.
