Hearables, or smart headphones, are highly integrated, truly wireless earbuds designed to improve audio experiences across a range of consumer and healthcare applications.
Small form factors, ultra-lightweight, and wireless operation increase user comfort. The continued challenge for hearables is how to combine audio quality, user experience, and better battery life in a tiny package while offering a multitude of possibilities, all of which demands digital signal processing.
NXP® offers a growing portfolio of ultra-low-power MiGLO™ hearables solutions based on digital signal processing, NFMI and Bluetooth® Low-Energy technologies. MiGLO delivers the power of wireless audio today.
Despite the popularity of body-worn wearables such as fitness trackers and smartwatches, manufacturers are expanding the scope to include any portable device we interact with including smart patches and smart clothing. Discreet and nearly invisible personal devices will encourage acceptance by reluctant users who want to avoid calling attention to a disability or medical need.
