The first product to be released, a Wolfson reference design headset using ComHear's innovative EarPuff earbuds, features a unique combination of both companies' technologies, and integrates ComHear's Kinetic Audio Processing (KAP(TM)) software onto Wolfson's WM8280 Audio Hub solution with ambient noise cancellation (ANC). This headset delivers an amazing audio experience, even in the noisiest environments, and can be used with all types of mobile consumer audio devices, but is especially adapted for wearable media presentation devices such as ComHear's Playbutton(TM), a fully customizable MP3 digital music player in a branded, wearable button.
ComHear's KAP software improves the user's perception of bass, spatial imaging and high frequencies, providing an immersive audio experience and eliminating the "in head" effect which can be common with headsets. The combination of ComHear and Wolfson technologies result in an incredibly satisfying audio experience without the need to listen at high volume levels, which protects listeners' long-term hearing acuity while increasing their enjoyment of audio.
Designed for portable devices including smartphones, tablets and headsets, Wolfson's WM8280 high performance, low power Audio Hub solution with integrated audio digital signal processor (DSP) features class-leading earpiece and stereo headphone ANC, enabling a reduction in background noise by up to 90%, and an outstanding audio experience for the user, regardless of external environment noise. When used in mobile devices, it provides crisp and clear audio and voice calls, outstanding audio capture and playback, and stunning conference call and video call experiences. The WM8280 is platform agnostic, so can be used by OEMs across all application processor platforms, and can run Wolfson's Ez2 suite of sound enhancing and noise reduction software, customers' own software or third party software, enabling OEMs to create a unique audio experience to help differentiate their product in the market.
"ComHear is a fresh, innovative and extremely exciting new player on the audio scene, with an incredibly experienced team behind it. By integrating ComHear's KAP software onto our WM8280 audio solution, consumers can enjoy an audio experience with renewed depth and clarity, the way the artists meant it to be heard."
Wolfson's WM8280 with ComHear KAP software is available now.
