  1. Spatial Sound doesn't turn on


    I got a surround sound headset and wanted to use it for gaming. Realized that my spatial sound wasn't working. Every time I turn it on, it turns right back off. I've tried updating drivers (I have default drivers), reinstalling drivers, and pretty much everything. The issue still happens in safe mode. It does give me the options, as I do have the Dolby Atmos, but it doesn't work. I can hear perfectly fine, but not surround sound. Also, when I right-click the sound button, the speaker says "Speaker setup (UNKOWN)" and only gives the option of off. Please help.

    :)

    I followed the instructions but when I got to #4 spatial sound said off and there was no other info or any way to turn it on. I hit return to default but that did nothing. Please help. my earphones are off .

  3. Spatial Sound

    Hi,

    The Spatial Sound feature is available in Windows 10 but by default, it has been disabled. To enable it, follow the steps below:

    • In the notification area, right-click on the sound icon.
    • In the context menu, click on Playback devices.
    • Select your playback device and then click on Properties.
    • Click on the Spatial sound tab.
    • Select the Spatial sound format you want to apply.

    Get back to us if there is anything else. We'll be glad to help.

    Spatial sound is not available on this device

    I think it's pretty obvious that he wasn't looking for that answer. He clearly explained that he's not able to turn on the spatial sound and not that he's unable to find a way to turn the spatial sound on. I've got the same problem and I too am looking for
    answers. Thank you for being nice enough to come up with an answer but please read the questions carefully before answerig them.
