“Imagine watching a movie or playing a game and hearing helicopters not only fly around you, but also fly directly over you. With spatial sound you can! Spatial sound is an enhanced immersive audio experience where sounds can flow around you, including overhead, in three-dimensional virtual space. Spatial sound provides an enhanced atmosphere which traditional surround sound formats cannot.
With spatial sound, all your movies and games will sound better. Some games, movies, and shows can natively support spatial sound – which provides the highest level of audio immersion and location accuracy. Otherwise, any traditional surround sound content is automatically upscaled to also provide an enhanced audio experience.
You can choose from three different spatial sound providers to hear the benefits: Windows Sonic for Headphones, Dolby Atmos for Headphones, and Dolby Atmos for home theater.”
