My mobile TIDAL app is now offering playlists in "360 Reality Audio" format.

This is apparently an object-based music format.

Tried streaming it from my mobile through headphones and could hear nothing specific or interesting about the sound qaulity.

Tried streaming it through Sooloos and all tracks failed to play.

Any thoughts or insights?

Sounds intriguing (no pun), but I am thoroughly confused how it could work with ALL headphones as they claim - or headphones at all for that matter. Without multiple speakers, the psycho acoustics just don’t support it...

I’m not surprised that you didn’t hear anything special.
