How to enable or disable Spatial sound feature in 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.
How to enable or disable spatial sound in Windows 11
Open Settings on Windows 11.
In Windows Settings, click System, select Sound on the right pane of your screen shown in the image below.
Under the “Output” section, click the Speakers page. If you have multiple speakers, choose the correct one. Under the “Spatial sound” setting, use the Type drop-down menu and select the “Windows Sonic for Headphones” option to enable spatial sound on Windows 11.
That’s it! You have successfully enabled Spatial sound on your PC or laptop. But, although you can use spatial sound with any headphones, it is recommended to use headphones that support the feature.
If you want to disable Windows Sonic for Headphones, turn Off the this option.
