Turning on dolby headphones setting on 598

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, 

 

I have two questions about my 598. 

 

1) Does turning on dolby headphones work for stereo headphones such as 598s? I feel like turning this on makes movies with 5.1 audio sound "better".  I'm wondering if I should bother investing in  dolby headphones?

 

2) Below are my settings for music and for movies. Are my settings set optimally? 

 

Thanks!

 

 

For Music:

 

700

 

 

For Movies

 

700

No such thing as "Dolby" headphones, just stereo headphones sold with a separate "Dolby Headphone" processing device.

Set your Audio Channel to 6-channel, use 8-channel for surround sound gaming or for the few Blu-ray movies that come with 7.1 audio.

Check the box just to the left of "Dolby Headphone".

You now have "Dolby Headphone" surround sound.

Exactly what I needed to know! Thank you so much for your time and help!
