Although the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus is relatively a new entrant in the smartphone market, its first product, the OnePlus One smartphone launched in April this year, has been quite well received. The company is striving to provide an improved user experience to its customers.
OnePlus has announced that it is coming out with a global OTA update in January 2015 vide which the OnePlus One will get Waves Audio’s MaxxAudio psychoacoustic sound enhancement suite. The company had recently enhanced OnePlus One’s camera function by adding clear image technology for better shots and the ability capture RAW images. OnePlus has now partnered with Waves Audio to add their MaxxAudio technology to OnePlus One.
MaxxAudio technology improves our listening experience by producing deeper bass, louder volume, clearer highs and better sound quality from earphones, speakers and devices connected by Bluetooth.
The Cyanogen team has integrated this MaxxAudio technology into OnePlus One. Steve Kondik, CTO of Cyanogen Inc. says, “Our team worked closely with MaxxAudio to perfect the software integration through the new version of the AudioFX app we developed.”
They have custom-tuned MaxxAudio specifically for OnePlus One’s speakers and the company’s JBL E1+ and Silver Bullet earphones. 10 equalizer presets including classical music, Jazz, heavy metal and hip hop will be available to the users. The user will also be able to manually control treble, bass and headphones spaciousness.
As Carl Pei, co-founder and director of OnePlus Global puts it, “With MaxxAudio from Waves, we are upping the bar on smartphone audio quality and customization.”
