Watching your favourite series on your TV, but feeling let down because the audio lacks oomph? Do you want that true cinema-like experience when you’re watching TV? For many that would be a dream come true, because many are not aware of how to get the best audio experience from their televisions. But believe us, with the right settings and devices, you could really level up your audio game.
That’s why we are here to give you the tips you need that will change the way you watch content on your TV and get the true cinema-like immersive audio experience that you deserve. In this edition of Experience Dolby with Gadgets360, we will talk about not just the devices , but will also tell you about the changes you can make to your television settings for a fully immersive audio experience while watching your favourite shows, movies, sports and playing video games.
Tip 1 — Raise the ‘Bar’
Many TVs today come with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision combined for that holistic viewing experience but additional audio hardware just makes the overall experience better. Investing in a good soundbar can enhance the overall experience. Having a full multi-speaker setup can be difficult to put together and manage, but with a soundbar you can get a cinema-like experience with the sound filling up the room from all sides, with just a single wire to deal with.
But you need to make sure that your soundbar has the features you want to fully immerse you in the experience. That’s pretty easy to do though — just make sure that it comes with Dolby Atmos technology, and you know that it will fill up the space and give you the experience of immersive audio for fully immersive experiences.
With Dolby Atmos, you’ll be able to experience multidimensional sound with incredible clarity and detail that allows you to hear details that you’ve never heard before. You can also get TVs with Dolby Atmos output, but if you want to take the experience to the next level this is a relatively simple and affordable way to do so.
Tip 2 — You need a serious upgrade!
Once you’ve gotten the right audio figured out, the next step to look at is the picture and video quality. Dolby technology doesn’t just enhance the audio, but its video technology, Dolby Vision unlocks a truly remarkable entertainment experience with ultravivid picture making the experience that much better. While you may get Dolby Vision enabled titles on various OTT platforms but watching your favourite shows and movies on a Dolby Vision enabled television will make your entertainment come alive with incredible brightness and contrast that you would have never seen on screen before.
Dolby Vision is an advanced HDR format that automatically delivers the highest quality images your device is able to display, so your entertainment always looks its best.
So, make sure that whenever you buy a new television, it supports both Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision, for the most immersive audio and video experiences.
Tip 3 — The technical and the quintessential
Once you’ve got your device sorted out, and your content is delivering the right quality (many of the best OTT providers support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision for a great experience) you still need to tweak your settings to be fully immersed.
Finding the right balance between ambient noise and dialogues is very important. No matter what TV you buy, you always have the option of tinkering with your TVs sound settings. Go to your TV’s audio setting and experiment with various sound modes that help with dialogue enhancement, extra bass and more.
Some TVs also offer customers the option of a custom equaliser to adjust the audio as per the consumer’s preference. So, if you want extra bass, you have a pre-set for that. And if you’re someone who likes crisper audio, you can always turn up the treble.
All this sounds great, but your audio experience can be even better if it is Dolby Atmos enabled.
Even if you’re watching a movie, or playing your favourite game, Dolby Atmos puts you right in the middle of the action and envelops you in an atmosphere of sound, so you get the best audio experience that you won’t find with any other audio technology.
That’s it for this edition of Experience Dolby with Gadgets 360, we’ll be back soon with more to help you get the best content experience.
