Microsoft Xbox One Preview Update Brings Surround Sound For Headphones
Just another tweak to make the console that much better.
If you’ve been paying attention over the last few weeks, you’ve probably noticed that Microsoft is tweaking and changing up its Xbox One dashboard. There have already been a number of tweaks and changes and it looks like more is on the way soon.
One of the changes that is being rolled out now in the Xbox Insider program is surround sound support and while it’s not a massive change, it should be a welcome addition to those who like to play the console with headphones. The change appears to be native virtual surround option for Xbox One headphones and it is being called “Windows Sonic for Headphones.”
This feature gives players a feel like they are using virtual surround sound and apparently its being offered for Windows 10 through the insider program as well. While the update is only available to a select few now, it seems as though we should expect it to roll out to a bigger audience in the near future.
