Go for a more immersive audio experience
If you have been able to enjoy the experience that Dolby Atmos proposes, you will agree with us that It is something very different from what we were used to until now to listen. It’s even better than those flashy 5.1 or 7.1 settings that have been loved for years for a cinema experience.
The reason, as we explained when we talk about the Dolby Atmos technology itself, is that it adds one more “layer” to the experience. Instead of having only one sound surrounding you in what we could consider as two dimensions, a third is now added that makes the audio also come from different heights. That’s the big difference and what makes everything so much more realistic.
Well, in prepared cinemas for Dolby Atmos all this is achieved by adding speakers at different heights and positions. In this way, the sound they project reaches you from practically anywhere in the room. Replicating this at home is complicated, hence many manufacturers have solved the issue by adding speakers that project sound in different directions. This plus the use of various algorithms and the bounce off walls, ceiling and floor make it possible to simulate everything in great detail.
What Dolby Atmos content can I enjoy now
As always, for any new technology the big problem is none other than the content that takes advantage of it. In this case there are numerous Blu-ray discs that already include content compatible with Dolby Atmos. But you won’t have to buy records like crazy if you don’t want to, platforms such as Amazon Prime Video or Netflix also support. So you only have to register if you have not already done so and activate a subscription plan that gives access to its catalog.
From that moment, select the movie or series that you like the most and see if it offers Dolby Atmos support in its options. If so, activate your compatible sound equipment and enjoy the experience that, as we say, is very worthwhile compared to the sound that your television can reproduce without the need for any external audio equipment or sound bars or more modest speakers (or ancient)
Best Dolby Altmos Compatible Sound Bars
In recent years, Dolby Atmos compatible sound bars have become popular for several reasons:
- They are much easier to integrate in homes where it is complex to install multiple speakers or expensive
- Related to the price, although their cost is higher than that of a traditional soundbar, they are cheaper than multi-speaker systems
- Mobility: they are easy to carry from one room to another
With these advantages, which will surely convince you unless you have a room dedicated to enjoying the seventh art, we see which are the most interesting models today in terms of soundbars compatible with Dolby Atmos.
Sonos is a very experienced manufacturer of sound issues and their Sonos arc a product that not only offers support for Dolby Atmos, but also integration with all those advantages that we like so much from the manufacturer. It is undoubtedly one of the most attractive options and for reasons of price, size, design and connectivity, it is not bad at all. A 100% recommended option.
The sound bar Sony HT-G700 not the best of all, but yeah the most accessible you can find and the experience in relation to the price is very good. In addition, it is not only compatible with Dolby Atmos but also supports other technologies such as DTS-X, something that the rest of the options also usually do in 99% of the cases.
The only “downside” is that it is a soundbar with a too high design. Logically, it will be a matter of preferences and tastes, but the same factor does not fit all users equally.
Sony is not an excessively competitive manufacturer in terms of price, but it has been demonstrating a know-how for a few years that is not up to everyone. The Sony HT-ST5000 It is a sound bar that is committed to quality and despite having a high price, it is the ideal complement to some of the best Smart TV screens of the manufacturer.
If price is not one of the great impediments for you when choosing and on top of that you have a television from the same brand, bet on it because it does not disappoint.
Samsung as a good Korean manufacturer with a product catalog as varied and wide as possible could not miss the appointment. The Samsung HW-Q950T It is a soundbar that does its job very well of delivering high quality Dolby Atmos sound.
Overall it will offer a very satisfying experience in most situations and homes. It is not necessary to complicate much in its installation or use, although it lacks some advantages such as the analysis of the room where it is found that some of its competitors do offer. Is this vital? No, but you can tell the difference when that calibration is done.
As with Sonos, Sennheiser is another one of those manufacturers with years of experience in sound issues that has not wanted to miss the opportunity to launch a very round product to enjoy the entire Dolby Atmos experience.
The Sennheiser AMBEBox It is an option to consider for quality and even design. It is true that this last point is always very particular to each one, but without breaking molds it is still a striking option that will fit very well in practically any place. The big problem: its price of about 2,500 euros.
The affordable and personal alternative to soundbars with Dolby Atmos
These sound bars, with their advantages and disadvantages among themselves, are the best experience they can offer you if you are looking for a device compatible with Dolby Atmos and a price that fits various types of budgets.
Even so, with good certified headphones you can also enjoy Dolby Atmos and in a much more personal way. But if you like to share a good series or movie as a couple, with friends or a family member, then you don’t have many more quality options. But without a doubt, our favorite is the Sonos ARC.
