    Dolby Atmos Headphones Spatial viritual surround sound 7.1 on or off?

    The option "turn on 7.1 virtual surround sound"

    Do you need to turn this on or off in use with Dolby Atmos for headphones?
    I read you need to disable "enhancements" when using Dolby Atmos

    However since the 7.1 virtual sound option is in the tab of spatial audio, where dolby atmos resides.
    It gives the impression they are ment to be used together.

    Does anyone have more knowledge about this?

    The “Turn on 7.1 virtual surround sound” (Windows) or “Use virtual surround in apps” (Xbox) checkbox allows all existing applications that were capable of rendering to 5.1 or 7.1 channel formats to now treat headphones as a virtual 7.1 device. Content that previously would have only been heard in multichannel via a multichannel home theater, and which would have utilized a linear downmix over headphones, can now be virtualized (using the format specified in the dropdown) and heard over any pair of stereo headphones. source
    I suspect that means Dolby Atmos for Headphones would be used for any multichannel audio, but also properly use the metadata in any Atmos track when it's available. If not, then it would be poorly coded because it can recognize Atmos metadata when Dolby Atmos for Headphones is enabled, it'd be silly stupid for that to be disabled when vss is enabled.
