Netflix delivers spatial audio to all of its customers based on Sennheiser technology. With the help of Ambeo, it should be possible to hear the effects with each pair of stereo speakers, as is known from surround sound systems. One of the first titles to be presented with a spatial voice is the fourth season of Stranger Things.
According to the information The Spatial Sound System aims to bring the cinematic experience of immersive sound to any pair of stereo speakers. Compatible titles can be found using the search function with the term “spatial sound”. The streaming service compares this feature to launching 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos.
This is how spatial sound is heard
Usually, Netflix subscribers do not have to do anything to enjoy the new sound effects. The feature works automatically on compatible devices. However, some TVs may be set to output 5.1 audio without the need for the appropriate speakers. This should turn into stereo sound. According to Netflix, if you have decent speakers you’d better use them.
For users of many Apple devices, spatial audio is nothing new on Netflix. Audio has been available on more iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV 4K devices for some time. Various AirPods and Beats Fit Pro can also output spatial audio via the Apple interface.
