Dolby Atmos: Bring Cinema Surround Sound Into Your Mobile Phones


Dolby Atmos Sound brings surround sound to our portable media streaming experience. It alters the audio to enhance the listening experience and gives the user an immersive feel.

Originally Dolby Atmos was designed for cinemas and later for homes.

However, Dolby Atmos is now customized into phones and mobile devices as it converts the audio into a three-dimensional virtual space and then passes it to the in-built load speakers or headphones.

Dolby Atmos Sound significantly improves the sound of music, games, and television. You will get the crisper & clearer dialogue and maximized sound without distortion.

Devices that come with Dolby Atmos Sound have a separate processor in them which converts the audio signal into 3D before it is sent to your speaker or headphone.
