By specializing in the different channels of a surround audio track on a headphone, Global Delight also aims to improve the perception of different audio channels distinctively.

Instead, it will utilize improved audio effects to offer you a better dramatic sound experience. Not to mention, the immersive surround sound quality will also climb significantly.

Previously, Global Delight made the Boom 3D garner only the exclusive features and made it focus on unparalleled 3D sound effects. But as you can see, things are going a different route with the new 5.1 updates. 

Users of the Boom 3D are sure to be transported into a much more realistic world of audio experience. And that is indeed a thing to look forward to.

On the previous version released by Global Delight, Boom 3D was downmixing the 5.1 multichannel audio to stereo by the system audio. The downmix was then virtualized to 3D surround sound

But thanks to the new update, Boom 3D can now directly spatialize every channel of the surround audio track and drive multichannel audio.

That eventually results in a much more immersive and realistic surround sound experience with headphones. And for direct support, the sound does not suffer from loss of details and quality.

There is no downmixing process going on, after all. What about the previous inbuilt features? Well, they are still available and going strong. 

Users have been praising all the inbuilt features such as fidelity, ambiance, spatial and night mode. And as this new update is sure to make users get more out of the Boom 3D, it will also get a lot of positive feedback.
