Qualcomm's new Bluetooth chip enables entry-level Bluetooth headsets with noise reduction and voice assistant capabilities
According to reports, Qualcomm recently released two new Bluetooth chips specifically designed for wireless headphones, QCC514x and QCC304x SoCs. Both chips support Qualcomm’s TrueWireless Mirroring technology for more reliable connectivity, while also supporting hardware with Qualcomm hybrid active noise reduction and digital assistant technology.
Qualcomm's TrueWireless Mirroring technology is that only one earbud maintains the Bluetooth connection with the smartphone, while the secondary bud mirrors the connected bud. This technology is engineered to deliver a rapid, seamless swap in multiple use cases.
The difference between QCC514x and QCC304x is whether a voice assistant is included. QCC514x can provide voice wake-up function like AirPods or Echo Buds, while QCC304x can only wake up voice assistant by pressing keys.
According to Qualcomm, the significance of the release of QCC304x is that entry-level headphones can also have high-end features such as voice assistants and active noise reduction. Today, the TWS earbuds market has a promising future, and it is a new opportunity for Qualcomm to enter the low-end market and occupy the dominant position.
