  1. Surround sound.


    Hi,

    why is it I can't change the surround setting on my Xbox one to what I want as it always states the device isn't compatible it's connected to. I run the Xbox one straight to my tv and not through the av amp to reduce lag (as its ridiculous other wise). i
    currently run sky, Xbox 360 mad bluray player this way, connected to tv then back to the amp and they all produce the 5.1 or 7.1 DTS or Dolby and get the sound perfectly. with the Xbox one I have to either use optical out which doesn't produce 7.1 or hdmi
    through the amp and suffer lag issues. I have a sony 7.1 amp with sony tv which use audio return via hdmi ad this method works as stated for all other equipment. so will there be a update or anything to allow me to choose my xbox one out put or just have to
    put up with it?

    :)

    Xbox video store - no surround sound

    All the movies list only English audio and no surround sound. I know they used to advertise surround sound. Does anyone know if the movies still have surround sound? even my purchased movies don't show surround sound. No DTS or Dolby

    Surround Sound Headset?

    This is a good question, but I've never considered doing something like this before. If you wait a bit longer, there will probably be a patch come out (or another adapter) to enable Dolby Digital capabilities.

    With surround sound, you will be able to actually hear things behind you. When properly set up, you will be able to pinpoint exactly where things are, even when they're not actually on the screen (IE: a car coming up to you from the rear driver's side will
    actually be heard approaching from the left & behind). So yeah, it can definitely improve gameplay.



    That said, stay away from those all in one HTiB systems. You will be much better off in the long run starting with a good receiver & decent speakers, then upgrading as you can. HTiB systems are basically throw aways.



    I believe the 360 only supports 5.1 channels, but I could be wrong.

    I grabbed this headset for my Xbox One, honestly its an amazing value and really comfortable. Plus it comes with a pre-paid code for Dolby Atmos!

    Well, you left out some info and there are a lot of posts in this forum about surround, so I'll just try to sum it up:

    1. The XBox One does not currently support Dolby Digital, at all.
    2. It does support DTS but you have to enable it in the settings as regular ol' stereo is selected by default. http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/system/configure-audio-settings
    3. If your receiver does not support DTS, then you're out of luck getting any surround until they patch it.
    4. If whatever you're watching (Live TV, DVD, etc) does not have a DTS track, then you're only going to get 2-channel stereo no matter what you do.

    Hi there,

    For a pretty good review and run down on this product I recommend taking a look at this review:

    https://www.windowscentral.com/plan...review-no-nonsense-wireless-audio-xbox-and-pc

    It states that it has really good sound for being a wireless headset and the wireless signal is strong and it's easy to set up.

    You have to redeem the code on your Xbox in the Microsoft Store app. Once the code is redeemed, the Dolby Access app will be installed and your access to Dolby for Headphones will be unlocked within the app with your pre-paid code. Once it's been unlocked
    in the app and you have it set, you will need to go into your system's audio settings to turn it on. Go to Settings>Display & sound>Audio output>Headset audio>Headset format>Dolby Atmos for headphones.

    I hope this helps!
