Immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos®, DTS:X® and Auro 3D® are pushing the boundaries of home theater and music beyond a single plane of surround sound into the realm of overhead height effects so sound emanates from speakers all around to create a 3D soundfield. This applies to ambient noise and for sound effects which we identify as being near or far away, or even zooming towards us based on the volume and directionality of the sound effect.
Commonly referred to as “object based surround sound”, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D use height effects to create the most convincing home audio experience possible for movies, TV, music and gaming lovers. The sound of rain falling all around you, an arrow or bullet whizzing by your head, or the panning effect of a jumbo jet flying over, these are the kind of head-spinning, duck-for-cover audio experiences that create a more convincing audio experience.
When choosing the best Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D home audio speakers, always look for full-range and direct radiating speakers that beam sound directly at the listening area for maximum sonic immersion and impact. In-ceiling loudspeakers and ceiling bounce speakers are also an option, but many find the performance compromised and the installation intrusive.
Each audio format has a unique approach, so here’s the official videos to help explain the technology further:
