'Enable 3D Audio' option not appearing

Hello,

I recently bought the PS5 Console edition, which is obviously great. The only slight problem is the Sound settings, where there is no option to enable 3D Audio or Audio Profiles. I've tried many types of headphones/headsets, whether wired or wireless - whether plugged into the DualSense controller or the USB port. All with the same result.

The headset that sounds best by far is the Gamemax Razor with 5.1 surround sound that I normally use for my PC - certainly sounds like it MIGHT be using 3D audio effects. However, the 3D Audio/Profiles profiles still does not appear in the Sound settings of the PS5. By contrast, the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 & 700 headsets sound pretty wimpy.

Any idea what is happening? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy the Sony Pulse 3D headset?

Thanks,
DANNY

Currently Tempest 3D audio doesn't work with Surround sound only Stereo be it Headsets/Headphones or TV/Soundbars they are looking to add Surround sound support at a later date,

Have you tried just a regular pair of Stereo Headphones/Headset a reason the option might not show up is it's detecting 5.1 with what you have been trying, other than that i cant see why the option wouldn't appear.
