What is Spatial Sound?

As Microsoft’s developer documentation puts it, Windows Sonic is a “platform-level solution for spatial sound support on Xbox on Windows.” Application developers can use spatial sound APIs lớn “create audio objects that emit audio from positions in 3D space.” All applications can take advantage of this—new UWP apps, traditional Windows desktop applications, standard PC games, & Xbox One games.

This is exactly the data that Dolby Atmos-enabled receivers need lớn phối their spatial sound, so Windows Sonic enables full Dolby Atmos support in the lakiểm tra versions of Windows 10. When paired with a Dolby Atmos-enabled receiver and speaker system, sounds you hear can be positioned in 3 chiều space—vertically as well as horizontally—for an improved surround sound experience.

However, this positional data can provide spatial sound in any pair of headphones. You just need lớn enable either “Windows Sonic for Headphones” or “Dolby Atmos for Headphones.” Both work similarly, but Dolby’s version uses Dolby’s công nghệ and has a price tag, while Windows Sonic uses only Microsoft’s công nghệ & is included for không lấy phí with Windows 10 & the Xbox One.

When you enable one of these features, your Windows PC (or Xbox One) will mix the audio using the positional data, providing a virtual spatial sound experience. So, if you’re playing a game & a sound is coming from above sầu your character và lớn the right, the sound will be mixed before it’s sent lớn your headphones so you hear that sound as coming from above sầu you & lớn the right.

These spatial sound features only work with applications that provide the spatial data lớn Windows.

What About 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound?

When you enable Windows Sonic for Headphones, the “Turn on 7.1 virtual surround sound” feature in the Sound Control Panel is also enabled by default. On the Xbox One, this feature is named “Use virtual surround sound.”

With 7.1 virtual surround sound enabled, Windows will take 7.1 surround sound audio—in video games or movies, for example—and mix it to lớn stereo sound, taking into tài khoản the position of the objects, before sending it lớn your headphones. 5.1 surround sound will also work.

Unlượt thích with true surround sound, you’re still using a standard pair of stereo headphones with only two speakers—one for each ear. However, the virtual surround sound provides more better positional audio cues, which are particularly useful when playing PC or Xbox games.

These tai nghe features function similarly to surround sound technologies for gaming headphones lượt thích Dolby Headphone, Creative Media Surround Sound 3 chiều (CMSS-3D Headphone), và DTX Headphone X. But they’re integrated into Windows & work with any pair of headphones.
