Akustica Chips That Can Hear, Speak and Sense the World Around Them

Create Smaller Bluetooth Headsets
With Even Better Acoustic Performance

As headsets get smaller, sound quality is often the first thing to suffer. This is in large part due to the fact that traditional microphones degrade in performance as they get smaller. Akustica’s CMOS MEMS microphones solve this problem and enable headset manufacturers to shrink the size of their overall device without degrading voice quality.

Additionally, wired and Bluetooth headsets are now being used in harsher acoustic environments than ever before.  With recent hands-free legislation, headset usage in cars present a new set of noise challenges such as wind noise, music, passenger noise, etc.  Many of the top Bluetooth chipset providers already support dual microphone noise suppression capability to overcome these challenges; however manufacturers have been challenged to find the additional space required for a second microphone.  The good news is that two Akustica AKU1126 microphones can fit in the same space currently used by one microphone today, meaning that headset manufacturers are free to enhance their performance by using available microphone array algorithms. The AKU1126 also fits in the same current budget as a single traditional microphone which is important for small portable devices such as headsets.

The AKU1126 is available now to enable the next generation of even smaller, lighter headsets that sound even better.

To discover how to make your next headset products smaller, lighter and less expensive to produce, while offering longer battery life and better, more consistent sound quality, contact Akustica today.
