The Dolby Dimension is Dolby’s first self-branded consumer product. They are over-ear, wireless Bluetooth headphones loaded with Dolby’s audio technologies and a few unique features. It comes with the premium-feeling leather-like material covering most of the earcups. The headband is padded with the same material and uses metal for the rest of its structure. and weighs around 330g.
It is specifically targeted at home entertainment use – since they don’t fold up, they aren’t easy to pack, and they don’t have battery life that can compete with the best from Sony Razor and Bose. — but hey, there’s nothing stopping you using them wherever you like.
The Dimension has a pair of 40mm custom acoustic drivers, promises up to 15 hours of battery life connected over Bluetooth 4.2 and, most importantly, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core ARM processor. The active noise-canceling (ANC) functionality comes by way of a five-microphone array and proprietary signal processing. Users can set the ANC levels with what Dolby calls LifeMix. see the video below to know how it works.
These settings can be adjusted through the Dolby Dimension companion app on iOS or Android, or by tapping and sliding your fingers on the touchpad on the side of the headphones. This pad can also be used to adjust the volume, play or pause, skip forward and back, answer calls or even start up Siri or the Google Assistant. The outside of the right ear cup has four physical buttons, one for power/sleep and the rest for selecting different inputs.
Since the Dimension relies on Bluetooth, it can’t support Dolby’s Atmos, the spatial-sound technology that makes it feel as if you’re inside a movie. However, features –Virtualization, which can mimic surround sound for your favorite movies and TV shows. Dolby says Virtualization is so advanced it can read the sound source and adjust how much digital enhancement is needed on the fly.
