What is Sony 360 Reality Audio? How it works and how to use it

Sony’s 360 Reality Audio is an immersive sound technology that brings 3D effects to your favorite music. And Sony’s system has one big advantage over Apple’s spatial audio and Samsung’s 360 Audio. Whereas both of these are only focused on movie and TV soundtracks, 360 Reality Audio can bring a similar 3D effect to your music. You can also use 360 Audio on a much wider range of audio hardware — it’s not even limited to Sony’s own headphones and speakers. 

However, this open approach might also make things more confusing. What do you need to start using 360 Reality Audio, and how exactly does the surround sound effect work? In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know.
