Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

I'm really impressed about belle FP1 coming to 701, 700 and 603.

I read an article by Nokia conversation:-

www.conversations.nokia.com/2012/03/01/nokia-808-pureview-partner-makes-it-unbeatable/

I noticed this:-

Normal stereo is
fired into your ears, but this Dolby software
converts it into a kind of sound halo around your
head.


Do anybody know how 5.1 channel sound can be experienced using normal headphones with only stereo speakers for right and left ears!?

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

The simple answer is it is not at all possible.I have a 50inch plasma tv in home.This technology is in it.But truly speaking up to this time i have not felt any 5.1 effect with it,either in headphones or without it.Just think how can be it possible.If it is possible then what is the use of all these speakers putting here and there on walls wasting space.This multi million companies will say this and more.It is all just a marketing trick, just like 1080i and 1080p in hdtv industry.Even people with sharp sight cant find out the difference between this two.But 1080p set is expensive than other.Now a days people will believe whatever this companies say.They have given rest to their common sense and brain.In reality the only thing will be the sound quality must be high with this software and with associated headphones.This is my experience and opinion.You have to wait until that update and then you yourself can say what is right and wrong.

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

Thanks for your reply.
Quite interesting.
I read that that technology converts normal 2 channel sound to surround channel effect.
I believe it would be very good as per the article.
Let me see after the update. :smileyhappy:
Satisfied with Nokia software and features. :smileyhappy:

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

Dolby Headphone / Dolby Digital Plus functionality provide an enhanced audio experience when using headphones. For content that has been encoded with Dolby Digital Plus audio, playback is transformed into a personal surround sound experience.

The difference is very noticeable and for most listeners will count as a very significant improvement (especially when watching movies). However, the software tricks used to achieve the effect may not appeal to audio purists. Dolby-encoded content can be downloaded through the Nokia Trailers application and, in due course, via the third party Voddler video-on-demand service.

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

Got the FP1 on my 701.
Dolby Digital really enhances the clarity and sourround sound.
We can clearly observe the motion of the sound around ears which is not possible when it is turned off.

See Pic.

Thanks for your reply.


My previous post is for normal audio and videos where DD enhances the sound.

Bacause of your reply I could able to searche the web and found  some videos at Doby.com itself.

www.dolby.com/us/en/consumer/technology/home-theater/dolby-digital-plus-download.html

 

Download especially the third video with name 

Channel Check

select  mp4 small.
Copy it to your phone and turn on DD symbol and listen.

Also see Dolby headphones and how it works.
www.dolby.com/us/en/consumer/technology/home-theater/dolby-headphone.html 

 

Now yes I'm confident to say that I'm hearing a true 5.1 surround sound with complete bass effect.

Thanks to Nokia for this awesome update called Belle FP1. :heart:

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

The sound provided through 2 speakers or headphones is Virtual surround. The trick is it uses phase difference in the audio signal.

There are headphones like Razer  Megalodon where sound is Virtual dolby surround.

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

DD+ files seems to be working nicely on the Nokia 700 also.

 

Off topic a bit, do normal DD 5.1 files not play on these devices, but only DD+?

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

There are no dolby headphones available.
Any normal headphones can produce 5.1 channel effect. Dolby symbol is only visible on dolby 5.1 supported videos. Dolby is enabled to turn on or off only when you attach headphones.

Check whether any software update is available for your phone.

Hope this helps.

Re: Nokia Belle FP1 and Dolby Digital Plus!

Software update could resolve your issue.
Check for update via Nokia suite or using software update on your phone.
