Headphones, Headsets, & Earbuds
Qualcomm Technologies’ low-power Bluetooth audio SoCs and technology solutions power devices from some of the world’s most recognizable audio brands. For more than 15 years, we’ve developed leading-edge Bluetooth SoCs, and the innovation, performance, and flexibility of our platforms has directly impacted the success of many iconic stereo headsets and truly wireless earbuds from the world’s leading names in audio. With our heritage in Bluetooth connectivity, RF, audio transmission, and power consumption, we are uniquely positioned to address the development challenges our customers face in designing smaller, low power, longer lasting, more richly featured audio devices.
Develop feature-rich headset products without unnecessarily compromising on battery life.
Provide superior listening experiences using our industry-leading noise cancellation technology, which is integrated in the SoC and enables super-low latency leak-through of the outside environment to allow for a truly natural awareness of your surroundings.
Designed to deliver superior audio quality and extended battery life, Qualcomm® TrueWireless™ Stereo technology enables a robust and seamless user experience.
Ensure a superior user experience with Qualcomm TrueWireless Mirroring technology, which seamlessly swaps between the earbud that’s connected to the smart device and the earbud that mirrors the connection, all without user intervention.
Offering both push-button voice activation and wake-word activation for multiple voice ecosystems, we enable OEMs to quickly and cost effectively add voice assistant capability to products at all tiers.
Deliver high-quality, “as good as wired” sound over Bluetooth wireless transmission using Qualcomm® aptX™, with support for up to 24-bit high definition (HD) audio.
Qualcomm® aptX™ Adaptive is a ground-breaking audio coding technology which combines robust premium audio quality with low-bit rate audio transmission, scalability, and the opportunity for low-latency—designed to create a premium wireless listening experience for end users.
Develop cost-effective solutions for multiple types and tiers of headset products with our feature-specific platforms.
