Spatial audio has been around for months with its first launch by Apple for lossless music. Users are ecstatic to take part in the augmented experience on music streaming, but not all have the privilege to jump on the bandwagon right away. While spatial audio is here to stay and available to everyone, it comes with a price and particular device specifications for use.
Now, Amazon is making it more convenient for its users with reachable terms for spatial music. Amazon is including spatial audio in its Amazon Music Unlimited subscriptions. While it is not the first time for Amazon to offer the lossless feature to its users, the main difference is its extensive reach. The spatial audio was only available on Echo Studio and Sony’s SRS-RA3000 and SRS-RA5000 speakers.
But now, you can enjoy surround sound when listening to Amazon Music Unlimited using any kind of headphones. Amazon eliminates the device compatibility restriction for users to enjoy the add-on music streaming feature.

What is Spatial Audio?
If you loved to listen to your favorite groove with a surround sound music experience when staying in a closed room, imagine having the same feeling when you go out somewhere. Spatial audio is a 3D surround-sound effect that you can use on your headphones. It creates immersive audio that envelops you while listening to your favorite tunes on compatible devices.
Listening with spatial audio will make you feel that music is all around you. Even when you are moving around, the lossless experience remains the same and maintains its augmented quality.
