Audience earSmart Technology Powers the Nexus 10's Voice Experience

Audience, Inc., a creator of advanced voice and audio processing for mobile devices, recently made it known that the newly released Nexus 10 tablet from Google and Samsung features its earSmart eS305 Advanced Voice processor. This processor allows the Nexus 10 to perform voice-enabled tasks reliably and accurately, according to Audience, regardless of surrounding noise.

The company went on to add that the earSmart eS305 also provides top-quality noise suppression performance for clear video calls, VoIP conference calling and other voice use.

"Audience is proud to deliver the technology that provides a crystal clear voice experience on the groundbreaking Nexus 10," said Peter Santos, president and CEO of Audience, Inc. "With Audience technology inside, Nexus 10 delivers a clean, crisp voice experience — whether you are chatting to a friend on a video call, searching for directions, or dictating a text."

Audience's earSmart technology is best suited for newer tablets capable of leveraging the capabilities of Advanced Voice technology, as the Nexus 10 does. This technology is based on the science of human hearing, featuring two active microphones just as humans have two ears. This allows the Nexus 10 to accurately analyze the sound in an environment, identify the primary voice, suppress noise and enhance voice quality all at once.

The Nexus 10 is Google's answer to the iPad and as such, it is loaded with a number of advanced specifications. Its 10-inch display, for example, sports a resolution of 2560 x 1600, besting the iPad's 264 pixels per inch (ppi) retina display with 300 ppi. The Nexus 10 also boasts a dual-core A15 Eagle CPU, a Mali T604 GPU and 2GB of RAM for top-level performance.

Of course, many say that Apple's ecosystem — it’s App Store and iTunes — are where the company is really ahead, but Google has also released a music service specifically for the Nexus 10 meant to combat the allure of iTunes.
