MEMS Speakers for Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Applications

USound MEMS speakers are the ideal solution for a number of applications, including Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). AR is a type of technology that allows computer-generated content to enhance the real world, while VR refers to an artificial environment that is provided by a computer and experienced through sensory stimuli.

There are multiple tools and gadgets that enable the use of these two technologies, including glasses, smartphone applications, headsets, stereoscopic displays, and gyroscopes. AR glasses and VR headsets are two of the most common types. The former are a type of smart glasses that enhance the user’s environment with digital overlays. For example, when used in combination with GPS technology, AR glasses may display virtual arrows to help you reach your destination. Virtual Reality headsets, on the other hand, are head-mounted devices that isolate the user from his or her environment by creating one that is completely artificial.

MEMS Speaker Applications

Thanks to their compact form, integration flexibility, absence of ferromagnetic materials, robustness, and sound precision, USound’s microspeakers can be used in a number of applications:

True Wireless Systems (TWS) earphones

Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality Glasses and Headsets

Audio glasses


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Headphones and Medical Devices

Over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids

VR Headset Components

To create such immersive virtual experiences, a set of advanced VR headsets components are required. These include motion sensors, lenses, computing devices, and an advanced audio system. USound MEMS speakers are an ideal VR headset component, as their compact size allows designers to optimize the final product by adding other key components.

AR Glasses Components

A pair of AR glasses consists of many components, such as cameras, sensors, and audio modules. USound microspeakers are the ideal AR glasses audio component, as they can improve the gadget’s audio performance and design.

USound MEMS Speaker Benefits for Virtual and Augmented Reality

MEMS speaker benefits for AR and VR applications include:

USound’s solution for smart eyewear, in particular, includes the patented Micro-2-way system. Splitting the microspeaker into two separate components – a woofer for low frequencies and a tweeter for high frequencies – offers unparalleled design flexibility, increasing the AR glasses’ overall quality.

USound Speakers for AR glasses and VR headsets

USound offers a range of MEMS-based audio solutions for Augmented and Virtual Reality. More specifically, the Ganymede microspeaker series has been designed considering the requirements of AR and VR devices.
