Making listening 360° with Spatial Audio on Apple Music

Whether it be in the recording studio where your favorite artist is producing music or in a thrilling scene from a Netflix movie, Apple music is taking you places with it’s newest feature, spatial audio. Read on below to find out more!

Spatial audio elevates the listening experience for anyone with Apple Music. With Apple’s new surround sound feature, listening to music and watching a film will no longer be the same. 

Essentially, spatial audio is a form of digital surround sound wherein the origin points of different sounds can envelop you from all directions. It is designed to make listening immersive with its 3D audio feature. Initially, spatial audio could only be experienced with your Apple AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, but now, it will be available on any headphones listening to Apple Music. Subscribers can listen to thousands of songs from various artists and genres without extra charge. 

Apple’s Spatial Audio is a layer on top of Dolby Atmos that enables an even more immersive listening experience. Dolby Atmos creates a simulated 3D audio space that contains depth and direction. Imagine watching a scene from a film where you could feel the sound of  the footsteps approaching you from the direction it’s coming from. This is what spatial audio with support from Dolby Atmos can do for you.

Apple music didn’t just recreate the audio experience of a cinema, but it now also brings the recording studio closer to you than ever before. Apple uses ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) to preserve every single bit of the original audio file. With lossless audio, Apple music subscribers now have the opportunity to listen to their favorite tunes in its purest form.
