Atmos for headphones and stereo content

What happens if you introduce a stereo only enabled game to Atmos for Headphones? Is it adviced or should it always have a minimum of a 5.1 channel audio present to really work?

Hi Johnny,

Dolby Atmos for Headphones is designed to deliver all mixes in the best format available.

A stereo or "direct to ears" mix will play back just as you've delivered it -- in stereo.

Dolby Atmos for Headphones is also capable of delivering 5.1 and 7.1 as well as Atmos mixes as well, but there is no requirement for additional channels. A stereo mix will be rendered on headphones in stereo.

I hope that helps!

Andy from Dolby

Hi Andy! I guess we can also use this as a symbol if its in effect or not right? The text under here where it says "Dolby Atmos for Headphones is in use"
