Survey shows consumers are happy to sacrifice 24% of battery capacity for AI features
Our 2019 Hearables Report: AI attitudes and expectations found that the majority of consumers are positive about the role of AI, with many willing to sacrifice a quarter of battery capacity for valuable capabilities.
Safety and security
Notifying a wearer to the sound of potential danger means they can get lost in their music without losing contact with the world around them.
Health and wellbeing
Monitor the performance and health of sport and fitness enthusiasts, adjusting exercise and lifestyles accordingly.
For those moments when consumers want to get lost in their music, our sound recognition technology can help reduce the effect of surrounding acoustic environments to improve the listening experience.
Sound recognition can help consumers seamlessly move between a rich audio experience and spontaneous interactions with their friends and important events around them.
