Unparalleled Sound

Spatial audio is a critical component of VR—it enhances the perception of size, space, and distance to improve immersion and presence. Whether you’re an aspiring sound designer or industry veteran, Oculus has audio tools, SDKs, and guides to help you build the ultimate VR experience.

High performance on PC and mobile

The Oculus Audio SDK helps minimize CPU utilization, which saves valuable power—a high priority for all applications. Additionally, the algorithms have been designed to eliminate additional audio latency.
