The audio experience on Galaxy phones is solid, but not the absolute best you've ever seen. This is because Samsung has partnered with Dolby Laboratories to provide the industry's leading sound technology called Dolby Atmos, which is disabled by default. Once this option is activated, the audio experience will be from good to great.
When Dolby Atmos is activated, the sound becomes noticeably louder. When watching movies, Dolby Atmos delivers a more spacious sound, giving you the impression that the sound is coming from all around you, not two headphones. With music, Dolby Atmos delivers a fuller sound that is more balanced than the default setting. No matter what your needs as a music lover ̵
Enabling Dolby Atmos
Open the settings by either selecting the gear icon in the Quick Settings or selecting "Settings". Icon in the app drawer. Select "Sounds and vibrations" and then "Advanced sound settings". Select "Sound Quality and Effects" and then "Dolby Atmos" to enable switching.
For the best listening experience, select the Dolby Atmos text (not the toggle). Selecting this will take you to a new page with some options for optimizing the configuration of Dolby Atmos extensions. Select "Music" for the best audio experience while listening to music.
The before and after is dramatic, so we recommend you to play music while listening to the Dolby Atmos main setting to switch on and off. How do you like it? Let us know in the comment section below.
