Every PS5 owner can experience brilliant hardware-accelerated virtual spatial 3D audio in their games with no special equipment other than a pair of headphones. Just toggle on the appropriate setting in the PS5’s menu, and you’ll hear spatialized audio that works on everything from older stereo and surround tracks in PS4 games to full dynamic 3D audio objects in the latest PS5 titles.
