Are you looking for a way to test your Spatial Audio AirPods? If so, you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll discuss what Spatial Audio AirPods are, how to test them and make sure they are working correctly.

Spatial Audio is a feature available on the third-generation AirPods that enables immersive audio experiences. This feature uses an array of directional microphones and advanced algorithms to create a 3D soundstage that allows you to experience music, movies and other audio content with greater depth and clarity. It’s also great for virtual meetings or online gaming as it helps create an enveloping sound field that makes it easier to identify where sounds are coming from.

So how do you test your Spatial Audio AirPods? The first step is to make sure your AirPods are connected to your iPhone or iPad. Once they’re connected, go into Settings > Bluetooth and tap the More Info button next to your AirPods in the list of devices. From there, tap Ear Tip Fit Test. Then tap Continue and then tap the Play button. This will trigger a series of tones that will help determine if your AirPods have good seal in your ears. If everyhing checks out, you should hear the tones clearly in both ears with no muffled sound or background noise.

Once you have confirmed that your AirPods have a good seal in your ears, you can move on to testing Spatial Audio itself. To do this, wear your AirPods and make sure they’re connected to your device. Open Control Center, touch and hold the volume control, then tap Spatial Audio at the lower rght corner of the screen. You should now be able to hear spatial audio when playing certain songs or movies on compatible Apple devices (iPhone 7 or later using iOS 15.1 or above). To check if a song is available in Dolby Atmos (which supports spatial audio), play it on Apple Music/iTunes/Apple TV/etc., then check for the Dolby Atmos badge in Now Playing.

We hope this blog post has helped explain what Spatial Audio is and how to test it on your AirPods!
