    I have a PS5 but the supposedly 3D audio hasn't wowed me. Only games I play is Demon Souls and 2K

    It's a genuine question seeing as I own a PS5 and haven't really noticed anything about the audio

    I played with the Pulses this weekend and they sound pretty good. you can definitely hear each rain drop, and all of that, probably better sounding headphones out there but unless you're an audiophile, i think most ppl will be pleased

    Yup. I guess I can say it's a subtle change. Games sound good, but nowhere near what I thought it was. Maybe we gotta wait till devs really do work?

    I thought it'd be something like this(listen with headphones)

    I don’t hear a difference at all in miles Morales.
    We’ll see if devs bother to use it more and prove that there’s a difference. Right now I’m not sold on it and there clearly aren’t enough games at the moment to make the case for it properly.

    2K and Demon Souls make good use of it

    Depends on the game. Some scenes in Spider-Man sound realistic like when a helicopter is above your head I took my headphones off thinking I leaked some confidential Google docs.

    I notice a difference but was already use to how 3d audio sounds because the psvr had it on ps4. Its definitely noticeable now in non vr games, last gen only a few games like last of us took advantage of 3d audio if you had the right headset but now I can hear everything around me in games like demons souls.

    Play dark souls 3 with headphones on ps4 then compare it to how demons soul sounds on ps5, the difference is very noticeable imo.

    The question is, would it sound any different if you turned the 3d audio off?
    3D audio in and of itself isn’t new. Sony has advertised it as something they’ve done to improve upon it and I’ve yet to experience anything audio wise on the ps5 that I haven’t experienced elsewhere.
