    Under audio settings does the Lumia 830 have the nicer "Dolby virtual sound" enhancement like the 1520, or does it just have "Dolby headphones" enhancement option under audio settings like on the 92x series Lumias...

    Virtually useless unless you have really great headphones.

    I have some Sony XB ear buds... they sound excellent to me, and go for about $44 on amazon, but whether that's good enough for me to hear the difference idk, but back when my 1520 screen still worked and I used the Dolby virtual surround I could definitely tell the difference compared to my old 925 sound quality and that was when I used $25 skullcandy earbuds

    I have a pair of Coloud Boom Nokia headphones 🎧. My L1320 has that older Dolby Headphones enhancement. I can hear the difference but its not all that better to be honest. Sound is more thin as compared to when the feature is turned off. Never experienced the Dolby virtual surround on those high end lumias though.

    I've used both, I prefer Dolby Headphone, esp for 5.1 original sources. I think it also does better on 2 channel music, giving the soundstage a more open feel.

    If you have good headphones (actually, not headphones, but IEMs), Dolby *anything* will destroy the quality of the music by putting artifacts into the stream. My JH-16s work perfectly without any EQ or post-processing. All those post-processing effects are designed to create better sound of *cheap* headphones.
