Can't seem to fix the formatting of this post, everytime I edit the description it reverts back to being spaced out
Is there much difference between this and Windows Sonic available on Xbox?
Does this even work/sound better with normal Dolby surround sound headphones? I have the astros and wondered if this made any noticeable differ

There is a trial available before you buy.
Is this a subscription or one off payment?

Personally I prefer the Dolby Atmos to Windows Sonic on Xbox, others may disagree with me. I use it with Hyper X Cloud 2 headphones. Use the free trial that is available and test it out. There are also some short movie and gameplay cut scene videos in the Dolby Atmos app, to test it out, with your headphones. Just make sure that Dolby Atmos is selected in your Xbox settings, for your headphones, as from experience, it doesn't always automatically switch over from Sonic, when you first try it, but it should stay on Dolby Atmos after that.

I have a desktop and a laptop, both on my MS account. Will I have to buy 1 or 2 copies? so is the license for the PC or the User account, like google does?
You're limited to 16bit 44khz I believe.
Does this make a difference to a Dolby digital headset ?

According to the app, each licence can be used on up to ten devices.
Ooh excellent!, So does that mean I can play DD5.1 content on my PC and it will encode the surround for stereo? So it sets itself up like a virtual 5.1/ 6 channel sound card?

From my understanding, yes. When you download the Dolby Access app on your PC it gives you a 30 day trial so you can try playing some surround content and see how it goes. I've been trying it out with a few games and it works surprisingly well for positional audio.

Edit: Found this: dolby.com/us/…tml
Q: Will Dolby Atmos improve the sound of my existing content?
A: Yes, Dolby Atmos for Headphones rendering will provide more accurate positional audio to all 5.1 and 7.1 games and movies than did earlier generations of headphones with Dolby technologies.

Once you've activated the Dolby Atmos trial or bought the actual licence for it, you need to go into your Xbox settings from the home screen.
39225846-MEh9o.jpgThen from there under the General tab you will see Volume And Audio Output, click into that.
39225846-tpkSr.jpgOn the next screen and under Headset Audio, you will see an option for headphone format.

39225846-jX8Yg.jpg Select that and a drop down box will give you options for Windows Sonic, and Dolby Atmos should now also be a selectable option, if you have activated the Dolby Atmos trial or purchased the full license, correctly. The 7.1 Soundcard that came with the Cloud 2 only works with PC as far as I am aware.

No problem
If you want to see how good it's working, go the the sound settings where the spatial sound settings are and turn it off and on from there.
Would this benefit me even on my cheap headphones or monitor speakers? Or my megaboom connected to my monitor?
