SRS Labs, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRSL), the industry leader in surround sound, audio and voice technologies, announced today that BBK Communications has implemented SRS WOW HD in the new BBK i18 multimedia mobile phone. SRS WOW HD is a state-of-the-art audio solution designed to deliver a thrilling entertainment experience.
BBK selected SRS Labs as their audio partner because of the demonstrable improvement SRS audio solutions provide for mobile phones. Utilizing patented SRS audio technologies, SRS WOW HD offers consumers a no-compromise entertainment experience. The immersive 3D audio, ultra-clear high frequency definition and deep, rich bass breathe new life into music files. Additionally, WOW HD restores the audio cues that are buried in the original source material so music sounds remarkably more natural and detailed.
“SRS has a fantastic reputation for providing exceptional audio solutions. Therefore, they were clearly our partner of choice for providing our customers with superior and demonstrable audio features,” says Yaoming Xu, products manager for BBK Communications. “With the implementation of SRS WOW HD, we are certain that our customers will be delighted by the remarkable mobile audio experience featured in our new phones.”
As evidenced by the growth of multimedia phones, consumers use their mobile phones for more than just a communication device. Today’s mobile phones are quickly transforming into an all-in-one entertainment device allowing consumers to take their media with them wherever they go. Rather than carrying a separate portable audio or video players, consumers now have the ability to store their music and favorite videos on their phone. However, the audio compression process, as well as the physical limitations of handheld devices in terms of speaker size and placement, often results in a less than optimal listening experience. With SRS’ WOW HD, BBK and other manufacturers can now deliver mobile audio featuring renewed depth and clarity – the way it was meant to be heard.
“We are very excited to partner with BBK and provide their customers with the high-quality audio experience they desire from their mobile phones when playing music or watching videos,” said Allen Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs. “Today’s mobile phone users are more multimedia savvy than ever before and expect top quality performance from their phones. As such, an optimal audio experience has become equally as important as a clearly understood phone conversation to the purchase decision. As with BBK, more and more manufacturers are now turning to SRS Labs in order to meet the needs of consumers.”
The BBK i18 also features a 2.8″ OLED display and a 3.2 mega pixel camera with auto focus. It will be available the end of January through over 20,000 retail stores in China as well as from www.bbkshop.com.
