With the new spatial sound of Windows 10, your headphones will become surround sound equipment.
Unlike graphics, sound doesn’t usually get much fondness; most of the time, that is left to the chipmaker or programmer.
Windows improves the sound of our headphones
So the arrival of the spatial sound of Windows 10 (nothing to do with astronauts) is quite a pleasant surprise; even if your results are not to our liking. At least it shows that there is interest in improving sound in the PC sector, beyond buying a new sound card.
Windows 10 spatial sound is designed for immersive sound with headphones; in theory you won’t have to buy a set of speakers to enjoy surround sound. Even if you have cheap headphones, the effect is supposed to show.
Of course, this is not the first attempt to achieve something similar; Alternatives like Dolby Atmos do the same thing, and there are many filters that try to get a sound more typical of a large room.
At the same time, this is an effect that does not please everyone. Our recommendation is that you at least try it, who knows, maybe that is something more than you wanted from the sound of your headphones. But there will also be many people who hate how the original sound changes.
