It sounds promising to have better audio from the same set of headphones.
No, you set your TB's to stereo mode(turning off their virtual surround). Then in the One's audio settings you select Sonic(you have to buy Atmos) and check the "HDMI or optical" or whatever it sez box. This allows the One to take the unprocessed stereo signal and use the Atmos or Sonic processing. I can tell you that the Stealth 500X surround is utter crap(I used to think it was pretty good) compared to the Atmos processing. I mean it's literally a true surround experience, night and day. I tried it w/ Siege last nite, and WOW. This is not a subtle difference we're talking about, it's like getting a new headset. The Atmos is a bit too tinny, it desperately needs a bass boost. I haven't tried Sonic yet. Imagine being able to buy a cheap stereo headset, and now being able to get good surround sound out of it. That must be why TB's new wireless 7.1 surround set is like half the price of their previous versions-they know people don't and won't pay for it when the One's processing better and FREE($15 for Atmos).

so ALL games will have surround sound regardless of patching or developer intervention?

If that's the case, I'd be willing to try it for $15.

They won't have Atmos unless specifically programmed, but they will all process surround in Windows Sonic.

I'm trying to understand as well.

So, pay $15 but Atmos will still only work in apps/games that support Atmos. Is that pretty much limited to the demo app and Blu-Rays for now? Does it work for all BDs or does it have to have an Atmos soundtrack?

Windows Sonic works with all apps/games outputting a stereo signal. Is this correct?

Is it the same for Windows 10 PCs/laptops? I can choose Windows Sonic and listen to Vudu/iTunes movies in surround but not Atmos.

Do I have all this right?
