Dolby is a trusted name in audio, but its latest product is a little different. Dolby Dimension is a new wireless headphone which is available in Market. Dolby crammed the Dimension Headphones full of their audio tech, both licensed (technology that’s sold to other manufacturers to use in their products) and exclusive to this rare hardware release. It has also created Life Mix for people who want to be immersed in content, but also need to hear noises from the real world.
Specification of Dolby Dimension
The Dolby Dimension are very well-design headphones that have a high-end look and feel. They are very comfortable to wear for hours, and their overall build feels solid. They also have a responsive and accurate touch-sensitive control scheme that is easy to use. Unfortunately, like most over-ears, they aren’t very breathable and won’t be the best option for sports, although they have a stable fit. They come with a charging dock that you can put next to your main power source for aesthetic purposes, but you can also only use the micro-USB cable to charge the headphones.
The Dolby Dimension are decent-sounding closed-back over-ear headphones. They have a punchy bass and a well-balanced mid-range, but the treble range lacks detail and brightness. Their bass is a bit inconsistent across users and doesn’t have the deep rumbles of similarly designed headsets like the Bose QuietComfort 35 II or the Sony WH-1000XM3. Their mid-range is also a bit cluttered and forward, but on the upside, they have virtualization and head tracking features that help give them a more speaker-like and spacious soundstage. However, we don’t have a test for DSP-created soundstage in our current test bench. Overall, these headphones will be versatile enough for a wide variety of music.
The Dolby Dimension have a sub-par integrated microphone. In quiet environments, speech recorded or transmitted with this mic sounds noticeably thin, muffled, and lacking in detail. In noisy situations, this microphone is able to separate speech from background noise in moderately loud places, like a busy street, but it may struggle in louder places.
Battery & Warranty
The battery life of the Dolby Dimension is disappointing when compared to other premium over-ear ANC headphones. On the upside, they have unique virtualization and head tracking features but we only measured 10 hours of battery life when not using them. With virtualization enabled, it has about 9 hours of continuous playback.
It includes a one-year warranty which can be accessed by contacting Dolby support.
