Audeze announces Dolby Atmos head tracking integration

Headphones manufacturer Audeze has announced the roll out of head tracking integration for its Maxwell headsets, expanding support for Dolby Atmos binaural rendering at NAMM 2024.

Audeze will also host interactive workshops throughout the show with Grammy winning recording engineers and artists.

Visitors to NAMM will be given the chance to learn from and interact with top recording engineers who have worked with the likes of Beyonce, Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Snoop Dogg, Lizzo, Tom Petty, Metallica and more. Featured speakers include Andrew Scheps, Eliott Scheiner, Brian Lucy, Jordan Rudess and George Massenburg, among others. Space is limited for these workshops that run from Thursday January 25th to Saturday January 27th, 12PM-4PM.

The full release of the head tracking feature for its Maxwell gaming headset for the Dolby Atmos Renderer is now available at for free download. Users must update the firmware of their Maxwell to version 56 to enable head tracking.

The update follows last year’s beta release which added head tracking capability on Maxwell headsets, transforming them into an optimized tool for Dolby Atmos binaural mixing. Dolby representatives will join the Audeze booth on Friday, January 26th at 11 AM to give demos and answer questions about this new functionality.

Furthermore, Audeze will be showing its entire line-up of award-winning planar magnetic headphones, including the MM series of professional studio monitors, made in collaboration with mix master Manny Marroquin. The MM-100s also a TEC Awards finalist for 2024, and will be featured at the TEC awards gala on January 27th, at 6 PM.
