Qualcomm S3 Gen 3 & S5 Gen 3 Sound Platforms Introduced for Premium & Mid-Tier Earbuds, Headphones and Speakers

Qualcomm Technologies has announced two new sound platforms: the Qualcomm S3 Gen 3 and Qualcomm S5 Gen 3 Sound platforms.

The Qualcomm S3 Gen 3 Sound platform has been designed to bring rich experiences to mid-tier devices via its unprecedented support for 3rd party solutions from the Qualcomm Voice & Music Extension Program, a vibrant ecosystem of providers that offers innovative technologies optimized to complement and enhance Qualcomm Sound platforms. These technologies are validated in advance, helping OEMs balance time to market and provide consumers with all the rich features they want, including hearing enhancement, spatial audio, echo cancellation and health tracking.

In the premium segment, the Qualcomm S5 Gen 3 Sound Platform and its new architecture will help drive developer innovation to deliver elevated sound experiences. It also features 3 times more compute and 50 times more AI power than its predecessor. This will allow the platform to power devices that can respond to how and where a device is being used for seamless and responsive sound experiences at work, at home and on the go.

“Across our portfolio we are committed to elevating the sound experience – from ultra-premium with S7, to premium with S5 and mid-tier for S3. We’re proud to announce our powerful new Qualcomm S5 and S3 Sound platforms which will help to drive a new generation of audio innovation.” said Dino Bekis, vice president and general manager, Wearables and Mixed Signals Solutions, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Consumers want richer features and experiences at more accessible price points and the Qualcomm Voice & Music Extension Program will provide OEMs with a significant competitive advantage and a stronger ability to differentiate, thanks to extensive access to some of the most innovative audio technologies in the world. Additionally for premium tier devices, the Qualcomm S5 Gen 3 Sound Platform’s new architecture and increased AI capabilities give OEMs a platform to develop intelligent devices that can monitor the user’s environment, in addition to how the device is being used, and respond accordingly.”
