WINDOWS SONIC SURROUND SOUND

Microsoft recently introduced Windows Sonic Surround Sound for Xbox One, which means that a gaming headset connected directly to the controller or to the console’s USB/Optical ports can now deliver immersive virtual surround sound. Additionally, you’ll be able to choose between Windows Sonic for Headphones (which is free), or Dolby Atmos for Headphones (sold separately). Whatever you decide, having surround sound provides a much more in-depth experience, and even offers a competitive advantage, so make sure you give it a try.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

The below Turtle Beach gaming headsets can all take advantage of Windows Sonic for Headphones (which is free), as well as Dolby Atmos for Headphones (sold separately):

Here’s how to set up your Turtle Beach headset with Xbox One’s Windows Sonic Surround Sound:
  1. In the Xbox One's menu, go to Settings >> Audio Devices >>Audio Output. 
  2. Select from: 
    1. Stereo Uncompressed. 
    2. Windows Sonic for Headphones. 
    3. Dolby Atmos for Headphones (sold separately).
  3. Select “Use virtual surround".

ELITE 800X

For the Turtle Beach ELITE 800X gaming headset, we recommend NOT using the new Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos surround sound settings, as the ELITE 800X already features DTS® Headphone:X® 7.1 Surround Sound, which provides the best audio experience for this specific headset. For the ELITE 800X, make sure your Xbox One™ audio settings are configured as shown below:

elite 800x
  1. In the Xbox One’s menu, go to Settings >> Audio Devices>> Audio Output. 
  2. Select “Optical Audio” to “Bitstream Out.” 
  3. Set “Bistream Format” to “Dolby Digital.” 
  4. Set “Headset Format” to “Stereo Uncompressed.”


RECON CHAT | RECON 30X | P4C

As these models are designed to deliver a best-in-class gaming chat experience, they are unaffected by the new Xbox One Surround Sound features.
