Ambience effects
Dolby Virtual Speaker
The Dolby Virtual Speaker features a virtual surround sound field.
This implements an effect as if there are multiple speakers in the
listening room.
Dolby Headphone
When headphones are used in music listening, the audio of the left (or
right) channel reaches only the left (or right) year so the listener cannot
feel the presence of acoustic images on the front.
The Dolby Headphone simulates a virtual room and include its
acoustic characteristics in the left and right headphone signals. As a
result, the listener can hear the same components as in speaker
listening through the left and right years and therefore feel as if the
sound source is located on the front of the listener.
