USound in Austria has launched an audio module for TWS and OTC hearing aids.

The module design uses micromachined (MEMS) structures to create sound chamber and pipes. The module is 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.

USound in Graz has been collaborating with the Chinese company Luxshare-ICT on the development of the module as well as with Austrian substrate maker AT&S.

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, chief technology officer at USound.

USound has co-developed TWS prototypes with Chinese company Innovation, integrating USound’s MEMS speakers from the Ganymede series that can be used as a blueprint to design true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds. 

The company has over 300 filed patents with offices in Graz, Vienna, San Francisco and Shenzhen.
