Actual "Atmos" requires 5+ speakers placed around you from different locations. Atmos on desktop only provides a software simulation to make things sound like they come from 3 dimensions. Software Atmos will work with any headphone and create a Surround sound-like experience. Personally in my exp software surround sound never works well and makes things sound worse and poorly placed in space in comparison to just regular stereo.

Dolby atmos can be used with any set of HPs, as it is just a software DSP. Although, I did a free trial, and didn't find it much different from the surround mode windows offers, and both just screw with the sound too much, for my taste. At least, that was my experience. Maybe it would be cool for gaming or something. But for music, it just made things sound, well, like a DSP was screwing with the sound signature. Definitely NOT an improvement, especially with live music. But again, this is just my preference, you may think it makes things sound better, in which case, yes, it would work just fine. The app just processes the signal, and outputs it to whatever is hooked up, be it a set of cans, or speakers, which simply turn the signal into audible sound.

shkdwnstI have Atmos, but I use it purely for gaming. Definitely better than Windows Sonic for that application, and it does improve the sound of some music on lower quality headphones. I turn it off whenever I am running higher quality cans though.

shkdwnstAs a gamer Dolby atmos on when playing games on the PC as it really does help with immersion and pinpointing player movement (footsteps etc). On my mobile device i turn it off as it makes music sound abit werid imho.

They can play whatever sound signal you send in. So if your PC will send sound altered by Atmos for headphones software then you will get what you send - a pseudo virtual sound that is way worse in all aspects then pure stereo sound.

If you're asking this then probably not. These are what you'd call "normal" headphones without any processing, so unless the dolby atmos surround you're speaking of can be applied to any stereo headphone the answer would be no

The irony is beautiful. Guy makes comment on the internet inferring that other guys on the internet are dumb; Then new guy enters dropping wisdom, teaching humility. Seems you actually can have expectations of people on the internet!

AndrewMilkyNo idea what you're hoping for, but if it's an apocalyptic saga or drama series you've come to the wrong theatre. Go rehearse your lines elsewhere
