How to enable or disable Spatial sound feature in Windows 11.

Enable Spatial Sound On Windows 11

Windows Sonic is Microsoft’s audio platform for more immersive audio. It includes integrated spatial sound on Windows, with support for both surround and elevation audio cues. On Windows 11, spatial sound is an audio format that provides a more immersive experience. Spatial sound is what Microsoft refers to as 3D sound, and you can use it on virtually any headphones, but on supported hardware works best.

Dolby Atmos is a more sophisticated type of surround sound. Instead of being split into multiple channels, sounds are mapped to virtual locations in 3D space and sent to your speaker system.

You can choose from three different spatial sound providers to hear the benefits: Windows Sonic for Headphones, Dolby Atmos for Headphones, and Dolby Atmos for home theater.
