MEMS speakers are replacing balanced armature speakers

MEMS speakers are about to appear in actual consumer products, especially in small form factor devices such as TWS earbuds and headphones. Efforts are also on the way to enable MEMS speakers in a larger form factor devices such as TVs, etc. 

USound is one of the leading companies in the MEMS speaker area and they forecast that 50% of TWS earbuds will use MEMS speaker by 2025. 

SAR finds that xMEMS is one of the strong rivals to USound when it comes to MEMS speakers as their solution is almost ready for the production stage and currently talking to many OEMs for evaluation, including TWS earbuds companies. 

One of the benefits of MEMS speakers is the small size compared to conventional dynamic speakers or even the balanced armatures. 

SAR is currently updating its MEMS Speaker research and will be publishing new data, stay tuned.  You can explore the Audio Signal Chain Service—where the latest MEMS Speaker research will be published soon—by following this link: SERVICE: Audio Signal Chain – SAR Insight
