Dione Sound Stripe

Sound strips

This new approach to microspeaker arrays transfers the LED strip concept to acoustics. The flexible sound strips are a suitable audio solution for existing non-audio products, used as an array of tweeters in a typical Hi-Fi multiway system.

Ideal for Smart speakers

The flexible sound strips are ideal for applications where audio is added on top of an existing design or as a tweeter array in a Hi-Fi multiway system.

Maximum Design Flexibility

The Dione MEMS speaker array enables the integration of speakers on any surface regardless of their shape, creating a flawless design. The bendable PCB allows mounting loudspeakers in devices with high component density and unconventional aesthetics without creating acoustic blind spots.

Premium Hi-Res audio

Having a wide bandwidth and high precision, USound MEMS speakers provide crisp and vivid audio. In an array, it enables the creation of directivity patterns.

Optimal reliability

The Dione sound strips are protected from mechanical damage. USound MEMS speakers comply with international reliability standards to ensure robustness and stable performance over the product lifetime.

Transferring the concept of led into acoustics

USound’s Dione sound strips are a novel approach to loudspeaker arrays that allows unprecedented design flexibility.

Demonstrator: Proteus 2.0

Proteus 2.0 is a speaker system consisting of a bass box with one 6.35 mm woofer and three sound tubes containing 20 MEMS speakers in an array, producing a homogenous clear surround sound.

USound for OPPO x Kengo Kuma

USound contributed to the multisensory landmark Bamboo (竹) Ring :|| Weaving a Symphony of Lightness and Form exhibited at the Milan Design Week 2021. This version of the installation features a layer of technology to engage all the senses with music through a series of orchestral scores composed by Japanese violinist Midori Komachi with Musicity. This was made possible by combining haptic motors, USound MEMS speakers, and exciters producing an immersive experience.
