A directional audio technique is used to manage audio channels of a virtual reality environment. The technique allows a user to hear sounds from features presented in the virtual reality environment in a fashion where sounds are emphasized based on a viewing direction, user navigation, or a virtual position of origin of a feature within the virtual reality environment. When one audio channel associated with a particular viewing direction, user navigation, or virtual position of origin is emphasized, other audio channels are muted, allowing the user to audibly distinguish, for example, different storylines, conversations, or events within the virtual reality environment.
