DTS Sound Unbound is now available through the Microsoft Store. The app allows users to control the playback of DTS-encoded content and also works with DTS headphone technology. The object-based spatial surround sound application was already available to Windows Insiders running 20H1 builds of Windows 10, and is now generally available for free (via WindowsLatest).
According to DTS, "DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X technologies deliver immersive, ultra-realistic, 3D audio when using Microsoft Spatial sound within Windows." Users will hear improved audio for games and content that are optimized for Microsoft Spatial audio. Several popular titles support Microsoft Spatial audio, including Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, Final Fantasy XV, and The Division 2.
The app is free to download, but you'll have to make a purchase to use it more than once. If you're searching for DTS in the Microsoft Store, make sure to download DTS Sound Unbound, not the DTS:X Ultra app that was available for Windows Insiders and used for testing. The DTS Sound Unbound app will deliver DTS spatial audio and DTS Headphone X technology on your system.
The app is available for Windows 10 PCs. At this time, the app is not available for Xbox One, though it will be in the future.
This app unlocks DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X technologies on your device to deliver object-based spatial audio.
