Qualcomm S5 and S3 Gen 2 Sound Platform announced | 91mobiles.com


The Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 enables premium experiences, while the Qualcomm S3 Gen 2 is aimed at mainstream audio devices. The chipmaker has been conducting a State of Sound survey for the past 6 years to understand customer shift. And insights from the 2022 State of Sound survey with 6,000 respondents helped Qualcomm focus on what consumers are looking for — spatial audio, Bluetooth LE and more.

Both the Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 and S3 Gen 2 feature third-gen Qualcomm Adaptive Noise Cancellation. Unlike typical noise-concealing mechanisms that completely tune out the outside environment, Qualcomm offers an adaptive transparency mode with automatic speed detection. ANC technology reduces common issues like wind noise and screeching.

The new audio platforms also feature a variety of connectivity standards, including Bluetooth LE audio. AuraCast also has support for broadcast audio, allowing you to share music with friends and family in a public setting or private environment.

Qualcomm is also working closely with leading audio brand Bose, which is supporting Snapdragon Sound with its latest products. In addition to earphones and speakers, the chipmaker also envisions AR and VR headsets to utilize Snapdragon sound technology. That’s why it’s focusing on spatial audio, which can track users’ head movements to optimize sound for a life-like experience.

Qualcomm S5 and S3 Gen 2 sound platforms are expected to enter commercial devices by the second half of 2023.
