Dolby Atmos for Headphones on Xbox One: Yea or Nay?


By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 January 2018

No, seriously, I am asking

It is 20% off right now until January 4, 2018. It is on sale for $15.19 CAD. Usually $14.99 USD (which translates to approx $18.99 CAD). It can only be purchased within the Xbox One Dolby Access App. This is a one time purchase which works on up to ten Xbox One Consoles of Windows 10 PCs.

Dolby Atmos for Headphones provides immersive audio though any set of headphones. Essentially enabling Spacial Sound for any Xbox One stereo headset. In fact if you have a surround sound headset it is required to turn those features off.

I am thinking about purchasing this while it is on sale but was hoping to get some ideas from any of you who may have tried it. Yes, I realize I don't normally listen to you but who knows what could happen?

Reviews are positive and are generally recommended as better than the, admittedly free, Windows Sonic option.

While Dolby Atmos for Headphones improves audio in any game there are specific Dolby Atmos audio in the following Xbox One games:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Origins
  • Gears of War 4
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Super Lucky’s Tale
  • Crackdown 3
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Shadow of War

One assumes more games will end up being supported.

It also works with Netflix, other media apps, and Blu-ray.

There is an entire debate on Reddit which may be colouring my views. More details on the Xbox Wire.

Are you going to need a tinfoil hat? We can always borrow a design from Stormblade.
