Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and Mi MIX Feature Dirac Sound Optimization Technologies
Uppsala, Sweden – October 31, 2016 – Swedish audio technology provider Dirac Research announces today that Xiaomi’s Mi Note 2 flagship smartphone and Mi MIX concept smartphone come with Dirac sound optimization technologies.
The new Xiaomi smartphones were launched this week in Beijing, China. The Mi Note features a 5.7-inch OLED display with 3D curved glass on both sides, Snapdragon 821 processor, and 4070 mAh battery. The Mi MIX features a borderless display that takes up 91.3% of the front, full ceramic body, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, and 4400mAh battery. The smartphones utilize two Dirac technologies to optimize listening quality while using headphones.
• Dirac HD Sound® enhances headphones’ ability to faithfully reproduce sound. Featuring unique digital acoustic optimization tailor-made for Xiaomi headphones, the technology delivers more natural and transparent sound with tighter, more controlled bass.
• Dirac Sensaround™ enables immersive sound from any headphones. The technology widens and externalizes the soundstage of the headphone playback, bringing Note 2 users an immersive cinematic sound experience on the go without requiring specially coded audio content.
Dirac and Xiaomi have been partners since 2013. All Xiaomi smartphones and tablets released from the end of 2013 onwards are equipped with Dirac sound optimization technologies.
“We are thrilled to bring an exclusive high-quality sound experience to users of Xiaomi Note 2 and Mi MIX,” says Erik Rudolphi, General Manager of BU Mobile at Dirac. “Technological breakthroughs in digital audio signal processing have fundamentally changed what we can hear from mobile devices. We are proud that Xiaomi has selected Dirac innovations to optimize entertainment experiences on the go.”
