Does this work with sound bars?

porkChop49d ago

In the comments on the page people are saying it does work but it sounds terrible. You have to set the audio to TV rather than soundbar, and it sounds muffled from what they've said. Support for soundbars is probably coming down the line.

I can attest to that. I have a pretty good Sony soundbar and it does sound awful. Switchng to TV audio I can definitely hear the 3D effects (albeit weak) but the overall soundscape and audio clarity is better than listening through the Soundbar (which is leaps and bounds better than the TV speakers, ironically).

Hopefully Sony will be addressing this sooner rather than later.

I have a Sonos Arc with surrounds. What should my settings be on for it to work properly?

What about AVRs/Home Theaters? Does it sound good there? Or is it only for TVs?

It is not supported yet. If you go through a av receiver, you cannot used 3d audio settings.

I think this is for anyone. The thing is though it isn’t all games I think. Playing returnal or ratchet, actual PS5 games, it sounds excellent. Still prefer the headset though. In the headset it REALLY shows. With the TV speakers it clearly sounds better than regular. I think because you can crank the headset up so much without waking up your whole house you can appreciate it more. On the TV you can’t exactly do too much.
Eitherway, awesome tech. I still feel like returnal is the best game I’ve ever heard. Ratchet definitely sounds crazy good. The sound of club nefarious in the distance with millions of other sounds is crazy. Returnal though. Some of those weapons literally made me jump. NBS crack of thunder in your ear. It’s amazing.

Isn't this a few months old news?

I've got an Atmos home theater complete with in ceiling hight channels. My reciever does a nice job of turning the 3d audio into fake atmos. I do dig the 3d audio when I'm playing with headphones before my wife gets up.

It does a good job faking the height channels with 5.1 too. In Days Gone when it's raining and you go into a stricture with a tin roof its amazing. So is the thunder when you're outside.
