Amazon is the latest group to include the technology, which is described as similar to surround sound in a movie theater. iHeartMedia branded it as 3D Audio and is working with their creative teams to use binaural audio to develop life-like soundscapes in commercials.
Amazon Music Unlimited customers can now stream spatial audio on more devices, including iOS and Android devices, with their existing headphones—no special equipment required—and on select additional devices that support Alexa Cast.
The first test of 3D Audio came a year ago when iHeartMedia and Blumhouse Television aligned with producer Aaron Mahnke to release the 13 Days of Halloween podcast starring actor-producer Keegan-Michael Key.
The listening experience was originally introduced to Amazon Music customers in 2019. Now, Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers can listen to music mixed in Dolby Atmos and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio on more devices, including new releases from Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Finneas, Lil Nas X and Remi Wolf. Next month, Amazon Music will exclusively release “Mercury – Act 1 (Amazon Music Live),” a brand-new EP from Imagine Dragons, mixed in Dolby Atmos.
“We recorded our new album Mercury – Act I with Rick Rubin at Shangri-La studios in Malibu, and it’s great to have a new avenue for people to experience the space and depth in those rooms through these new Dolby Atmos mixes,” Imagine Dragons said in a release. “We’re excited to share our first acoustic live EP of some of these tracks, that we recorded with Amazon Music.”
Last month, Clubhouse added spatial audio to its service. The feature will initially be available to iOS users with the latest version of the app with the Android version set to come next.
Amazon doesn’t publish the number of spatial audio tracks that its subscribers can access, but it does list some of the highlights people can expect: Remi Wolf’s debut album Juno, Finneas’ recently released album Optimist, and Rüfüs Du Sol’s fourth album, Surrender. Alicia Keys’ full catalog of songs will be available in 360 RA, including albums like Songs in A Minor and Girl on Fire. In November, Amazon Music will exclusively release Mercury – Act 1 (Amazon Music Live), an EP from Imagine Dragons, mixed in Dolby Atmos. The five-track EP features music from the band’s album release livestream, which was recorded from the rooftop of the Amazon Music office in Brooklyn.
