USound, a provider of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) loudspeakers for hearables and wearables, announced the release of an audio module designed to enhance the performance of TWS and OTC hearing aids.

The module design uses physical frequency crossover technology, with finished parts of acoustic design including sound chamber and pipes. This module is described as “a ready-to-use solution for hearing aids and true wireless earbuds.” Manufacturers can integrate the module in earphones by changing the venting volume to achieve a different sound experience, according to USound’s announcement.

The audio module is available in two versions: a two-way audio system and a full-range ultra-compact audio module. The two-way audio system includes a USound’s MEMS speaker from the Conamara series as a tweeter and an electrodynamic speaker as a woofer. This combination allows for “increased playtime, better sound quality, and performance.” 

“Hearables’ manufacturers can now create more ergonomic and comfortable hearables, with extended battery life and audio quality. With this module, the form factor of hearing aids and TWS  is considerably reduced, and the performance surpasses market standards,” said Andrea Rusconi, CTO at USound. 

USound has been collaborating with the Chinese company Luxshare-ICT on the development of this audio module as well as AT&S. USound already co-developed TWS prototypes early this quarter with the Chinese company Innovation, which “successfully integrates USound’s MEMS speakers from the Ganymede series and can be used as a blueprint to design true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds.
