When you think of the Dolby Dimension, you really wonder why this step into the end-consumer audio space is one the brand didn’t take earlier. After all, Dolby is the leading innovator in the audio space with a multitude of patented technologies. Considering their place in the industry, for their first branded consumer product, they went the whole distance, for the Dolby Dimension is an over-ear wireless headphone with a rather intriguing USP. That of a headphone designed to be worn in your home, connected to the devices you use to consume content, whether your phone, laptop or tablet. In other words, the device will enable the cinematic audio your binge-watching experience deserves, whether movies, TV shows or the NBA.
As befits Dolby standing in the audio space, there are some intriguing features as well. The Dolby Dimension wireless headphones, which have a very premium design aesthetic courtesy the synthetic leather finish, are fitted with custom 40mm acoustic drivers for aptly powerful sound.
The Head Tracking feature makes the sound seem like it’s always coming from your screen, even when you turn your head, for a more consistently realistic experience. It gets active noise cancellation in the form of LifeMix, which lets you control how much you can hear of your immediate surroundings with 12 different settings. Then we have virtualization, a digital processing feature that Dolby dramatically enhances the sound of all your movies, shows and music.
The Dolby Dimension can keep the information of up to three Bluetooth audio sources, so you simply press the button on the headphones to switch from your phone to the TV to the tablet and back. And we love the included Power Base, which lets you dock the device while not using, readying it for your Bodyguard binge watch session.
The Dolby Dimension over-ear, wireless Bluetooth headphones will retail for $599
