IS DOLBY AUDIO SAME AS 8D AUDIO?

Dolby Sound/Dolby Atmos is a surround sound technology, expands on existing surround sound systems, allowing sounds to be interpreted as three-dimensional (3D) objects. But then, is 8D audio like a Dolby audio? Let's go over the details for some deeper scenarios.

 

8D AUDIO: It uses the principles of binaural recording (designed to work with headphones) to trick our brains into feeling that sounds are coming from different directions in three-dimensional (3D) space as listener is standing in the middle of a concert hall.

“8D AUDIO TRICKS OUR BRAINS INTO FEELING THAT SOUNDS
ARE COMING FROM DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS.”

The use of 8D audio creates a sound like the music is surrounding you and moving around your head. Listening to music in 8D audio is blowing people’s minds.

 

DOLBY SOUND: Produces a mixture of different audio processing formats, that have no relation to “virtual surround” or binaural audio reproduction at all.

“DOLBY ATMOS CREATES POWERFUL, MOVING AUDIO
THAT SEEMS TO STREAM ALL AROUND YOU.”

If you run the costly Atmos-recorded audio through Atmos headphones, you’ll get your ears dropped into the actual surround sound field for maximum mind-blowing effect.

 

ANALYSIS:  8D audio tracks let you feel a “virtual surround sound” on headphones, while Dolby Atmos headphones let you experience something like 8D audio out of any old stereo track.

An even “more advanced 8D audio” is the Dolby Atmos, a technology developed by Dolby using sound objects. Also with this technology, audio engineers refer 8D music as spatial sound or 3D audio. Similarly, the streaming platforms now offers spatial audio with Dolby Atmos. Producers, musicians, and audio experts create them, thus record labels and distribute to well-known music streaming apps like SpotifyAmazon, Pandora,  Apple Music or YouTube. You can appreciate these formats on headphones, surround sound home teater systems, and even single 3D speakers. Feel the 8D surround music-Dolby sound experience.

 

THE RESULT: Virtual reality (VR) makes use of technology like Dolby Atmos to make their sound fully three-dimensional. Spatial audio or 3D music and more advanced 8D audio, though, like Dolby Atmos audio is quite possible that in the future it could be more immersive to music lovers.

Listeners are always trying to connect with their favorite artists and music, and 8D audio helps them bring closer.
