People are always looking for the new ways and features to explore on their lives on the daily basis. With the products, companies are playing a key role to get that feature and provide it to their consumers. If you remembered that Sony has introduced the Sony’s 360 Reality Audio and apple introduced Spatial Audio to the market. Right now Samsung has introduced the 360 audio for their users. Before getting to How to Easily Enable 360 Audio on Samsung Buds Live, let’s find out what is 360 Audio.

What is exactly the 360 Audio?

In simple terms of people, it is a 360 degree audio but the only difference is, it is using airphones to provide it to the users. You may call it a 3D sound effect just like apple and Sony. If you have used the apple’s’ spatial audio, you are noticing that they have filtered the sound for their TV programs, soundtracks and more. In other simple words you can say that a single sound is coming from every angle (below, above, behind, side etc.)

Apple, Sony and now Samsung are not the first company who have digitally filtered the sounds, Dolby Atmos is the first to implement it (Kind of different). When this feature is turned on, you will notice a very cool and amazing suitable piece of content with a very good sound. It improves stereo audio, it will not be relying only on X-axis flat, instead it is a portable sound effect for every angle.

Dolby has this feature called head tracking technology (it tracks the movement of your head). The same way Samsung has added the headtracking feature to the Galaxy buds pro and the other series. It means while playing a playback song or a movie, seems like the sound is coming from the direction of your moving head.

Users must know the below things about the 360 audio earphones before starting to use it.

  • It is not enough if you have a 360 audio earphone which is supporting it, it must be connected to one of the Samsung devices. like Galaxy smartphone series or the tablet series that are running the one UI 3.1 or later.

  • Samsung will release an update for the Galaxy buds 2, and Galaxy buds live to support the 360 Audio.
  • As I said earlier that in order to work with the 360 audio you must have Samsung’s other smartphone or tablet running the One UI 3.1 or later.
