Dolby Atmos for Headphones and in-game audio settings?

I’m trying to figure out the proper way to configure in-game audio to properly support Dolby Atmos for Headphones. I’ve tried searching Google but I’ve come up empty.

Should you set the in-game audio setting to 5.1/7.1 or headphones?

I asked this same question on reddit but I have gotten different answers and I’m more confused now. One user is very adamant the “headphones” is the correct choice but, I think he is misinterpreting the one article he has linked too. Here is the reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/com...6D&sh=d0a55d0f

Not sure why I didn’t come here first. So, what is the correct in-game audio setting to use?

The "Dolby Atmos for Headphones" is a binaural rendering engine. Thus having the game output 5.1 or 7.1 (which it would do as PCM) is correct.


Having the game render the audio for headphones defeats this.
