What is needed to listen to Dolby Atmos?
Listening to music in Dolby Atmos is like stepping into the music and becoming one with it. All you need is a pair of headphones, as the format adapts the sound to the listener’s audio system – but the best experience is achieved with a so-called 7.1.4 system. You can read more about what this means in our article “What is Dolby Atmos?”.
The easiest and cheapest way to listen to music in Dolby Atmos:
- A mobile phone

Listen in a home theater system:

Dolby Atmos is the future
Here at KMR Studios, we have high hopes for this exciting format. It’s only a matter of time before streaming music in Dolby Atmos becomes available on Spotify, and the demand will rise exponentially in Sweden. Historically, it’s always the pioneers, the daring, and the curious who have benefited the most from technological revolutions. Prepare for the future with the help of professionals. We have designed our entire Studio A around our Atmos system with the assistance of Dolby themselves. They have also performed and approved the calibration of our room. So you can feel confident that the work will meet the international standard it deserves.
