Audience earSmart Technology Delivers Industry Leading Voice Quality to the HUAWEI Ascend D1 Quad XL in China17:00 EDT Sunday, September 30, 2012MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Audience®, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADNC), the leader in advanced voice and audio processing for mobile devices, today announced that the new Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL smartphone with the earSmart™ eS305 Advanced Voice processor is now available in China. The earSmart eS305 was chosen by Huawei for its ability to deliver the industry's best sounding voice experience, even when the user is in a noisy environment. Audience earSmart technology in the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL removes background noise for crystal clear voice quality. Innovative smartphone manufacturers, like Huawei, are embracing earSmart technology to give consumers the ability to make or take calls from nearly anywhere, regardless of the environment. "Consumers expect a clear voice and audio experience when selecting an advanced smartphone," said Andy Keane, vice president of marketing for Audience. "The earSmart es305 delivers that experience no matter where you use the phone. By working with an industry leader like Huawei on the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL, Audience voice processors meet the demand for improved voice and audio while setting new standards for what to expect from our smartphones." Audience earSmart technology is based on the science of the human hearing system, and just as humans have two ears, the HUAWEI Ascend D1 Quad XL smartphone has two microphones. This allows the phone to analyze the sound environment, and then identify voice, suppress noise, and enhance voice quality. Audience earSmart technology makes clear calls possible, in handset and speakerphone mode, so users can "hear and be heard™" in noisy environments where mobile calls were previously frustrating and difficult.
