So immersive. So real.

360 Reality Audio

Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real.

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 vocal, chorus, 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.
