After half a year of internal testing, DTS:X — or DTS immersive sound experience, as DTS notes — has arrived for all Windows 10 users. DTS quietly updated its Microsoft Store app over the weekend with support for Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) and everyone can finally install the app.
Microsoft has tested DTS:X and immersive audio for movies and games with Windows Insiders to bring surround sound to your stereo headphones. The app called ‘DTS Sound Unbound‘ brings support for both DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X to your PC (and eventually other devices, including Xbox One).
According to Microsoft Store listing, you’ll need a PC with Windows 10 Build 18362.xxx or newer to download and run the app. Download size is approximately 210 MB.
DST says installing this app will enable immersive and 3D audio, and it works together with Microsoft Spatial sound technology. As mentioned, the app also enables DTS:X technology, so you can play DTS-encoded content and watch movies with improved immersion and realism.
DTS Headphone:X technology is also included in this app. It’s worth noting that the free offering only allows a simple trial and the full-fledged technology requires you to make a one-time payment.
