Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound, new improved sound quality standard on mobile

Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound, a technology to improve wireless audio to limits unknown until now. We tell you all the details and how you can enjoy this technology.

The company is known for the manufacture of mobile processors and has now set out to solve the problem that arises in the union between devices and for this purpose has created an unreleased technology.

With Snapdragon Sound, you'll be able to break down the barriers that existed so far around the sound that was linked via Bluetooth. When a mobile connects to a wireless headset, some information is lost along the way because the current Bluetooth bandwidth has a limit.

What is achieved with Qualcomm's new chips is to boost and increase that Bluetooth bandwidth to enable smoother, more true-to-reality wireless sound with ultra-low latency (89 milliseconds), improved pairing, 24-bit audio quality, and 96 kHz.

The story changes radically, as this technology optimizes resources to make the most of music and deliver unrivaled quality so far.

Also, Snapdragon Sound features Qualcomm Aqstic DAC which consists of a digital signal converter in analog. For what? To simulate that the signal from the mobile that reaches the wireless headphones appears to arrive by cable.

When listening to music over cable, the level of detail and information is much higher than using the basic Bluetooth connection, since over the way no information is lost, nor is there latency from the connection between the two devices.

Qualcomm Aqstic DAC is especially focused on those who prefer to listen to music directly from their smartphone. What's surprising is that the new Snapdragon Sound chip supports audio formats up to 384kHz 32-bit PCM and DSD with an ultra-low THD+N.

All the technology that makes up Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound is located in:

  • Current mobiles with Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 System mobile connectivity system.
  • Smartphones with Snapdragon 8 Series processors.
  • Qualcomm series Bluetooth audio SoCs QCC514x, QCC515x, and QCC3056.
  • Devices powered by Qualcomm Active Noise Cancelling (ANC).
  • Devices with Qualcomm aptX Adaptive recent.
  • Qualcomm aptX super-wideband voice.
  • Qualcomm Aqstic audio codec and WCD938x and WSA883x smart speaker amplifiers.
  • Qualcomm Audio and Voice Communication Suite.

Qualcomm has so far joined Xiaomi to offer its technology on mobiles with Snapdragon 888 and the 8 series in general. In turn, it has also reached an agreement with Audio Technica for future headphones compatible with this new technology.
