Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd., one of the largest producers of chipsets globally, has recently announced its new Qualcomm® Snapdragon Sound™ technology. Qualcomm states that the new technology belongs to an optimized chain of audio innovations and software designed to provide seamless, immersive audio in and across, devices including smartphones, wireless earbuds, and headsets.
The company states that Snapdragon Sound provides a superior sound experience for consumers while listening to streaming music, communicating on the phone, or wirelessly gaming.
“The human ear is highly sensitive to glitches, latencies, and other challenges which commonly occur when streaming music, video conferencing, or gaming over wireless connections. By focusing end-to-end, we are looking to deliver innovations to solve common consumer pain-points across virtually all audio interaction points.”
The manufacturer claims that there are many ways sound quality gets disrupted between users and devices. it can either occur due to breaks in connectivity, audio dropouts and glitches, latency, and poor audio compression all lead to an awful listening experience.
Snapdragon Sound optimizes the interactions between Qualcomm technology stacks and delivers a more robust and seamless wireless listening experience, supporting high-resolution 24-bit 96kHz audio, ultra-low latency, improved pairing, and crystal-clear voice quality.
The sound technology from Qualcomm supports Bluetooth latencies as low as 89 milliseconds (45% lower than a leading competitor) for a more immersive gaming and video watching experience. It also includes Qualcomm Aqstic™ DAC, which supports formats of up to 384kHz 32-bit PCM and DSD with ultra-low THD+N.
“Qualcomm Technologies is uniquely positioned to provide tremendous value to customers with Snapdragon Sound and help them quickly commercialize products differentiated by the great sound quality. Our system-level approach aggregates multiple technologies and the latest products from across our mobile and audio platform portfolios to achieve our vision of delivering high-resolution, wired quality audio wirelessly.”
