    • Smartphone Audio Today

      While your favorite entertainment becomes increasingly available on your smartphone, poor audio reduces its ability to deliver a truly compelling experience. Challenges lie both in smartphone form factors and in streaming-based content delivery.

      Smartphone audio depth and clarity are limited by coin-sized speakers. Low-power amplifiers produce tinny or hollow sound, while many techniques that compress files to make them easy to store and stream also compromise the audio quality.

      Now, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Audio overcome these limitations to change the whole mobile experience.
