Dolby Atmos for Headphones

Dolby Atmos games for Xbox and Windows sound great, no question.  You've got your console hooked up to your Dolby Atmos sound system, and you're in the game, right in the middle of the action.

However, when you want to chat with other players or when a sound system is just too much, there is another solution, Dolby Atmos for Headphones. Dolby Atmos for Headphones allows you to experience Dolby Atmos (for Xbox and Windows 10) through any set of headphones.  ANY set of headphones, so no need to replace your favorites. 

How do you get the sound of more than 2 speakers out of headphones?  Dolby Atmos uses the audio object metadata to correctly position the audio anywhere within a full 360-degree space.  Previously audio was limited to speaker positions in the horizontal plane.

Try out Dolby Atmos for free by downloading the Dolby Access app from the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or Windows 10 Store.  If you're a game studio and would like to enable Dolby Atmos for Headphones for your team, let us know
