Speaker technology — energy-efficient micro speakers for in-ear headphones

Research News /

In-ear headphones, which are inserted wirelessly into the ear canal, could replace smartphones in the future. A team of researchers from the Fraunho-fer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS and Bosch Sensortec GmbH laid the foundation for this with a novel technology for the integrated micro loudspeakers — and they are receiving the Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize 2023 for it.
