I just started watching the first Harry Potter after I updated my iPhone to 14. I guess the AirPod pro's updated automatically. The experience is might I say ... magical, works way better then I expected. I could see where everyone that watches films on their phone will want to use the AirPod pro just for this one feature. I wonder if in a few months there will be more people listening with 5.1 sound on apple then any other environment. The directionality of the dialog is especially compelling, feels like I'm in the theater.

I wonder how different the experience is dependent on the input signal. So once I get the AirPods I’ll try with an Atmos mix we did and will feed them with EAC3 encodings of the native Atmos mix on the one hand, and stereo and 5.1 downmixes on the other hand.

Generally it’s great that finally Someone tackled one of the two big obstacles for proper headphone virtualization.
Waiting for easy camera-based HRTF customization in iOS15. 🤩
