- PS5 Will Use the DualSense to Optimise 3D Audio Through TV Speakers
Sounds pretty similar to what Sonos does with their Trueplay tuning. I hope this will eventually work for HDMI speaker setups as well like soundbars.ID: h6ya626
I'm betting it will! But guessing we won't get multi-speaker 3D surround till 2022.ID: h6yache
Thankfully my surround setup does a phenomenal job as is, but always looking forward to technologies to make it better.ID: h70c6m7
I mean tbh its already 3D tho.
I have my Sonos surround sound setup and its so weird how it puts shit behind me and up top. Ill still take a sound profile just in case they somehow make it better tho.ID: h6ys3s1
So this doesn't work for soundbars? That's unfortunate, couldn't imagine using the TV speakers only....sure it would have 3D audio but it would sounds like I'm in a tin canID: h712ovm
Damn, what kind of TV do you have for its built-in speakers to sound like a tin can? A cardboard box with a metal trash can lid as the base?
Here's hoping they also improve the HRTF selection tool for headphones. Pretty sure I'm missing out on a lot of the surround effect because none of the profiles sound "right".
Update: They are!ID: h6ytmtj
Yay! 2 of the 5 profiles sound the same to me and I'm not entirely sure which is "right"ID: h7005us
I’ve been missing out on 3D Audio completely because all 5 presets sound muffled to my ears (using the Pulse headset too). Which was unexpected, as virtual surround sound has always been the preferred option for me, but now this is the first time in a long while I’ve had to play with just stereo sound.
Edit: Guys. It's all muffled; the quality, & the directionality. It's hard to pick out the source of an audio queue if someone smashes a pillow up into your ears. Back at launch, I had found one that had approached acceptable, and played awhile to see if I'd get used to it, but then tried out stereo out of curiosity and ironically it was the closet sound to the Gold's VSS than the 3D Audio's presets.ID: h72mvdk
... all 5 presets sound muffled to my ears (using the Pulse headset too).
No, you're completely missing the point: All you need to concentrate on when selecting a profile is the sense of directionality.
Try the setup process again, and ignore any sense of the sound being muffled, and concentrate soley on which profile gives you the most accurate sense of direction/position.
I'm a weirdo that uses an AV receiver with corded headphones. I hope they enable 3D audio over HDMI because right now it's disabled. My alternative is to just plug my headphones into the controller which works but is more of an inconvenience with my setup.ID: h6ylscr
How so? I've noticed sometimes if I boot up the PS5 with headphones already plugged into the controller, HDMI control to other devices might not work properly, but it seldom does on a good day. What issues do you run into?ID: h6yn1zw
Maybe I didn't explain well enough. 3D audio currently only works via the 3D Audio Headphones Sony sells or a standard set of headphones plugged directly into the controller. My headphones are plugged into my AV receiver. Audio is coming from the PS5 via HDMI into the receiver in PCM format. I'm hoping someday they'll allow the 3D audio format to be pipped through the HDMI cable because right now it doesn't recognize 3D audio in settings unless I plug my headphones directly into the controller instead of my AV receiver.
tl;dr whatever special codec/format 3D audio uses does not get pipped through HDMI currently, only via their wireless headphones and controller which unfortunately is a setup I don't use.ID: h6zn6l0
yeah, i have a similar setup and it's frustrating that i can't just tell the ps5 "i know what i'm doing, i'm using headphones, please trust me." i get why they'd want to limit it when they can't verify the equipment, but i wish it that was just like, a spooky warning instead of completely disabling the features.
Man, I called this back in the fall and basically got called an idiot by a dozen people on this sub. There were a few who said "cool!" and "oh that would be clever!"/comments/fxus4 /?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.reddit.com/ /comments/fxus4 /?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

This sub will downvote anything thats remotely technical if its not mentioned by Sony PR.
I’m not sure why this is surprising. My (well really my parents) Sony 5.1 receiver from 2010 had a mic for room setup and compensation. Using a remote for calibration is a standard thing on high end TVs with smart remotes these days.
It really unfortunate how almost no gaming subreddit ever wants to have a conversation. It’s either toxic positivity or toxic criticism.

Yep, my Samsung home theater system (from like 2010) has a mic that you were supposed to plug in and set in the middle of the room so it could configure itself.
Yup. But that didn't stop a whole bunch of fanboys with zero technical knowledge from calling me an idiot and saying stuff like "how can it do that when it's only for noise cancellation?" or "I don't think the mics are powerful enough". I love when people have zero clue try to get technical.
These are the same bright minds who think you need to buy the Sony branded headphones to get 3D and think "surround" headphones work by having multiple drivers in each ear to create surround effects. Bless their hearts.
Most comments were positive hop down off the cross there
People care less about sound 🙁 I think 3D audio is very interesting
Do you have a link to that discussion?
