The new standard in antennas for audio wearables
Nothing kills brand trust like an audio drop-out. Our robust antennas elevate wearable performance by extending range and reducing drop-out. This means you get more coverage, unbeaten wireless reliability, and with BodyWave™ UWB antenna, linear CD quality 16-bit 44.1 uncompressed wireless audio becomes a reality.
Traditional antenna - Limited wireless coverage
BodyWave antenna - Complete wireless coverage
Body blocking - the bottleneck for wireless audio applications
Wireless audio applications depend on the reliability of the connection between the audio output and the receiving device. However, the human body is a challenging platform for any wireless technology, reducing communication ranges and introducing drop-outs.
Whilst conventional solutions exist, each solution introduces other drawbacks such as increased cost, power consumption, or lower data rates - whilst failing to address the fundamental issue of body blocking.
BodyWave™ use case - hi-res low latency uwb wireless audio
UWB has the potential to offer linear CD quality, 16-bit 44.1 uncompressed wireless audio. It's low latency, (sub 5ms end to end) and low power. However drop-outs caused by body blocking and detuning make UWB challenging for audio applications worn close to the body.
By addressing these challenges and delivering 10-20db increased link budget, BodyWave antennas overcome the reliability barrier to adoption of UWB in the audio sector and deliver glitch-free ranges of up to 15m.
BodyWave™ use case - pro audio and live performance
Live performance environments rely on robust, real-time audio connections. However, user movement and noisy RF environments makes live performance challenging for wireless wearables.
In delivering 10-20db increased link budget non-line-of-sight, BodyWave antennas maintain coverage in directions normally obscured by the body. In live performance environments this means:
- Freedom for the user to move without dropouts, and an extended communication range
- No latency or power consumption compromises to protect wireless performance
BodyWave™ use case - consumer audio and gaming
In delivering 10-20db increased link budget non-line-of-sight, BodyWave antennas give a boost to the wireless experience that for consumer audio applications translate as:
- Earbuds and headsets that stay connected to a phone even when carried in the back pocket
- Reliable, low latency gaming headsets without compromises in audio quality or power consumption
