Soundskrit and AAC technologies announce partnership to bring the world’s first high-performance MEMS directional microphones to market

Soundskrit, the audio company whose cutting-edge hardware and software promise to lead to a new era for microphone performance, and AAC Technologies Holdings (“AAC Technologies” or “the Company”; HKEX: 2018), a total solution provider, announce a partnership to make directional MEMS microphone technologies widely available to end user customers across consumer electronics and automotive markets.

Directional MEMS microphones, bring the capabilities of traditional microphone arrays to a single device, featuring incredibly consistent directionality across the full audible spectrum and a very high directional SNR. Directional microphones are the ideal solution for rejecting undesired background noise and isolating a user’s voice. Pairing it with proprietary signal processing enables a new suite of audio-related features and experiences for a wide range of applications including laptops, webcams, smart speakers, TVs, AR/VR, health devices, wearables, vehicles, and more. This new technology rethinks how audio systems are built, unlocking new and better ways to communicate, experience and share the world around us.

Soundskrit brings a commanding expertise in spatial audio processing, MEMS, and acoustic design to AAC Technologies’ dominant portfolio of audio and sensing system solutions. AAC Technologies, an established and proven market leader for championing new state-of-the-art sensing technologies, will provide a unique platform to further develop and integrate Soundskrit technologies to serve OEM customers globally. This next generation of audio-based features will create a more connected world, one where distractions are suppressed, and communication barriers are removed.

Whether it’s wireless earbuds that enhance your listening, AR glasses of the future that allow real-time translation, or the next generation of vehicle in-cabin audio systems with enhanced noise cancelling, personal communication and playback zones, Soundskrit and AAC Technologies are committed to building the foundational technologies enabling OEMs to start building that future.

AAC and Soundskrit have started to engage with the ecosystem players and customers across various segments. More product details and launch dates information will be available in the near future.
