  1. No Directional Audio or Spatial sound on Windows


    Recently I had updated Windows to the newest update and I noticed that my audio was a little flat. I tried playing games and I noticed that there is no Directional audio, For example when I hear a gunshot there is no way of knowing what direction it was from. I am a seriously competitive gamer legendary eagle master on cs And same with many other games so this is a huge issue to the point where I can't even play games knowing the sound is pretty much useless.


    I tried for about 5 and a half hours straight trying to get this issue resolved, then I was with microsoft support for a couple hours and they gave me one last update before leaving the 'chat'. They left chat, I updated, and ofc still the same problem with nothing fixed. I have been on this for about 8 hours straight and I can't find any help or articles or anything to get this audio issue resolved. When I go to Headphone Properties and change my Spatial Sound, No matter what I change it to, it instantly reverts back to "Off". Also, this is for all of my sound devices. Anything I connect to has the same issue no matter what device I use for sound. If anyone is able to help me out with this issue that would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Hi,

    Windows Sonic is Microsoft’s audio platform for more immersive audio. It includes integrated spatial sound on Windows, with support for both surround and elevation audio cues.

    We would like to more about your issue:
