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 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"


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
