Sonos Headphones: Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours
What you need to know
- Sonos has reportedly acquired Bluetooth audio startup T2 Software.
- The move suggests Sonos could soon enter the wireless headphones market.
- T2 Software has been working on implementations of Bluetooth LC3, which delivers high-quality audio at significantly lower data rates than current codecs used in Bluetooth audio devices.
The smart speaker maker Sonos has purchased Bluetooth audio startup T2 Software, according to Protocol. The company is based in Louisville and had been working on implementations of the new codec for LC3–a more efficient method that can provide higher quality sound over longer distances than before with less power consumption or interference from other electronics such as microwaves which would otherwise ruin your music!
The new Bluetooth LC3 codec enables streaming of high-quality audio at significantly lower data rates than the older, power-hungry protocols. As such it’s no surprise that this technology will result in smaller batteries for devices using these headsets or speakers!
Bluetooth LC3 is a new high-quality, low-power audio codec that offers superior sound over SBC. It can reduce bit rates by 50% while still providing crisp clear tones and vocals!
With the Bluetooth LC3 codec, users can now stream audio from multiple sources at once. This is perfect for those who want better stereo pairing and/or surround sound in their headphones! The same feature will be available on Sonos speakers soon too–they’re ahead of schedule with innovation again thanks to this recent development effort by Apple..
In a recent post on LinkedIn, Sonos’ Pete Pederson revealed that the company is looking for an advertising agency to work with them in one of their most ambitious projects yet.
The post also mentioned that the agency must have previous experience in “launching a new brand/product/service” and “creating an innovative category for established brands.” Even though there’s no mention of headphones, it does suggest Sonos’ rumored pair could finally be announced soon.
In early 2019, it was reported that Sonos is working on a pair of wireless headphones with an asking price over $300 and support for both Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
