QUALCOMM aptX VOICE PROMISES STUDIO QUALITY CALLS VIA BLUETOOTH
The latest development proves that Qualcomm aptX Voice codec is set to provide individuals with quality calls through their Bluetooth devices, also a part of the company’s aptX Adaptive audio technology suite. This improvement will practically impact positively on an individual’s high definition (HD) voice quality call, which is based on the fact that it was not previously supported by codec.
In a bid to actualize its objective, voice calls will now come through a wide 32kHz frequency range, similar to that of high definition audio quality offered by aptX for music. And will mean a flat 16kHz frequency response quality, resulting in greater call quality via the Bluetooth Hands-free Profile required to connect people’s phones with their accessories.
According to Qualcomm, the new codec is dependent on compatible hardware, and as such, the latest flagship and midrange phones with Snapdragon 865 and 765 chips will practically support the next sets of Bluetooth accessories that will deploy the company’s Bluetooth Audio system-on-chip by the third quarter of this year.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm aptX Voice isn’t currently focused on the consumer market, but will practically lessen the strain on each listener. In the same vein, it will be very helpful to those associated with businesses of heavy calling operations such as customer service line.
Responding to this development, Qualcomm Vice president and General Manager ‘James Chapman’ made it clear that “As consumers increasingly use wireless headsets and earbuds for making and receiving calls, aptX Voice is the answer to ensuring higher clarity and quality of call experience.”
Also, the company in its recent analysis detailed a number of improvements that should be expected from a better frequency range coupled with the flat 16kHz frequency response that will be brought to Bluetooth calls. Equally to note here is that it will be easier to figure out accented speakers, in the same vein, distinguish words with similar sounds such as ‘f’ and ‘s’, which in most cases are indistinguishable via Bluetooth headset call.
- Qualcomm aptX Voice, a good approach or what do you think?
