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.

Maybe it's placebo, but in my use case I like using my Xbox as a main media center, so yesterday I was using my Xbox controller with 1More Quad Driver IEMs on HBO Max. Comparing the different audio options in my opinion.

Stereo Uncompressed: Sounds flat but nothing necessary seems off.

Windows Sonic: Sound stage seems larger with this option, but too "tinny and reverb-y" for my taste.

Dolby Atmos: A good balance between feeling like it has dimension without that tinny sound. You also can adjust some settings in the app to your preference.

I'm not an audio expert, but Dolby Atmos for Headphones in my experience seems to be the best option out of all of them.

Quote from Sporkinum :
No, but it is currently broken. Seemed to break around a week ago. Having to have all sound from computer go out 5.1 now. Shame too, as the Atmos from PC to receiver sounded great while it was working. Hoping they get it fixed soon.
I noticed that too but I don't believe it is broken just behaves differently. Before I would leave my PC set to Dolby Atmos home theater and get all sound. Then my pc sound went away unless i set it to 7.1. However when I played a Dolby Atmos movie my receiver played it in Atmos mode correctly.

Interesting I just got an astro gaming 40 headset with a code for this but it states code for 2 years not life time. Very odd

I use the Cloud Alphas on Xbox One and feel like Sonic is fine for games. Seems like Dolby and Dts shine for movies and things like that.

Similar question as above. I got a code from the Astro A50s for 2 years, would purchasing this stack on top of the two years?

Quote from jjmai :
What if my headphone is already simulated virtual 7.1 sound. Does this atmos app conflict?

Egon: Don't cross the simulated surround sound.
Peter: Why?
Egon: It would be bad.
Peter: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean "bad"?
Egon: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Raymond: Total protonic reversal.
Peter: That's bad. Okay. Alright, important safety tip, thanks Egon. LMAO

This thing is buggy. I've been using it on and off for a few weeks and I just wish it saved my sound settings after reboot. I have to go into sound settings and enable it more than half the time and when switching to home theater setup the sound cuts out when I switch between video or sound that is playing. Very annoying in terms of usability but sound is good when it works.

Well...because physics gonna physics, no matter how much marketing nonsense you tag to it. Dolby Atmos requires speakers above your head. You can't do that with software.

I got it 2 days ago and have the same question
I believe on the purchase page it says it can be installed on on to I think 10 devices. Read through the fun print, I bought it a few weeks back.

Supposedly so, I imagine the results and experience will vary. I used bluetooth to my laptop and my xbox one s to a pair of Bowers and Wilkins PX which have a pretty awesome sound stage, and the effects are pretty damn good for a pair of headphones. Especially headphones that aren't a "Surround sound" 5.1/7.1 headphone. I also have an Atmos setup in the same room, the actual atmos setup with the dual 12's etc. still provides a better spacial effect, however for $10, it's well worth it. Especially if you don't have an Atmos theater setup. It has to be Atmos content however, so certain games, movies, some netflix content etc.

I have read if your headphones have special software that you are supposed to disable the effects or software for the surround sound headphones for it to work correctly. That said also be sure you are playing content that contains an atmos sound track, otherwise it doesn't enable.

My headphones were plug and play on the Xbox. No special software.

I will need to mess around more in the settings. Thanks
