But, capacitive MEMS microphones fall short in all major requirements for this product category – robustness, ultra low power and high dynamic range. Our Piezoelectric microphones are ideal for cutting-edge headsets and hearables.
Our patented ZeroPower ListeningTM technology allows the end user to activate Siri or google assistant with wake-word detection, meaning they never have to touch the device to engage with it. Better yet, it does so with a battery life savings that one could not imagine with current capacitive based always listening solution.
Our Piezoelectric sensor technology provides much higher dynamic range compared to capacitive sensors enabling superior audio quality in loud environments as well as in the presence of wind noise.
All of our products are waterproof and dust proof, without the sound-muffling meshes of capacitive MEMS microphones. So not only are our microphones durable, our devices do this while preserving acoustic integrity.
This means wake-on-sound feature could be added to fitness bands, Smartwatches etc.
