What is 360 Reality Audio?

360 Reality Audio is a new music experience using Sony’s object based spatial audio technology.

Individual sounds such as vocals, piano, guitar, bass, and even sounds of the live audience can be placed in a 360 spherical sound field, giving artists and creators a new way to express their creativity. Listeners can be immersed in a field of sound exactly as intended by artists and creators.
