I don't post much but this is a deal I noticed last night.

DOLBY ATMOS for Headphones for Windows 10 PCs, XBOX One, and XBOX SERIES S/X is on sale for $ 10.49 (Normal price $14.99). If you aren't familiar...only Windows Sonic is supported out of the box for Xbox consoles and Windows 10 PCs,

Dolby Atmos and DTS are extra and require installation / activation.

You will need to install the DOLBY ACCESS app (which comes with a 7-day free ATMOS trial) via the Microsoft store on Windows 10 & Xbox Consoles.

Via that app you can access the purchase of DOLBY ATMOS as well as the settings. You also can go directly to the link for purchase.

This rarely ever goes on sale though I do know vouchers for a free copy are included with some RIG headsets.

I have a Atmos reciever, I don't need to purchase this if I am just doing Atmos through my sound system right (not headphones)?

I have tested this on my Xbox Series X, it works through plugged in headphones on controllers.

I would hope so. I'm just trying to see the need for this. My sound is pretty great as-is, not sure what benefit this app will bring.

As an Xbox insider, I can tell you one of the most common things that is broken (seems like for years now) is sound, including Dolby, including Atmos. "we are aware that some users are experiencing bla bla with Dolby Atmos bla bla..." I must have seen this message a hundred times...They are "aware" and yet never seem to be able to fix it permanently...

It does specify on Xbox's website and it does translate for all consoles and Windows PC. Just need the Dolby Access app and turn on the right settings after purchasing.

It's called Marketing. They've got suckers buying phones, laptops and crappy soundbars labeled with 'atmos' stickers now.

I've had this for years...but it's too bad the current implementation on XSX via ATMOS has serious audio lag issues.

Yes I can see the icons denoting compatibility, like everything else in the MS Store. It's just curious they only mention Win10 in the description and literally zero mention of it's benefit on a console.

The x-box comes with real dolby atmos for real speakers. This is simulated Dolby Atmos for headphones only.

Quote from StutterFace :
So is Windows Sonic no bueno? What does this give that Sonic doesn't?

Also, the product description only mentions Win10...nothing about consoles. Odd. Meh, sale ends in 10 days...time to educate myself.
Windows Sonic vs Dolby Atmos. It sounds like it comes down to preference. I am not convinced I need this.

Some details on the two technologies:
