Audience earSmart Technology Delivers Crystal Clear Voice on New Xiaomi Mi2 Smartphone06:00 EDT Wednesday, August 22, 2012MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 22, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Audience®, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADNC), the leader in advanced voice and audio processing for mobile devices, today announced that the new Xiaomi Mi2 smartphone incorporates the earSmart™ eS310 Advanced Voice processor to deliver the best-sounding voice experience to Chinese consumers. The Xiaomi Mi2 uses earSmart™ technology to remove background noise for crystal clear voice quality. Mi2 users can now make or take calls from nearly anywhere, regardless of their environment. "Our goal is to give our customers the best of every technology and delivering the best voice quality is an important part of this," said Tang Yanglin, product manager at Xiaomi. "Xiaomi users have an active lifestyle - always on the move - earSmart™ technology lets them talk from just about anywhere, even if it's noisy." earSmart™ technology is based on the science of the human hearing system, and just as humans have two ears, the Xiaomi Mi2 smartphone has two microphones. This allows the phone to analyze the sound environment, and then identify voice, suppress noise, and enhance voice quality. earSmart™ technology makes clear calls possible in both handset and speakerphone mode, so users can "hear and be heard™" in noisy environments where mobile calls were previously frustrating and difficult.
