Personally I think this would be a cool little thing to have for those of us that like to listen to music all day while at work or something like that and don’t have to worry about disturbing others. Just put the case on your device, start your music and jam out with much better sounding music than your phone itself can provide.

The challenge in achieving good audio is always a balance between audio cavity, speaker frequency response, and equalization engines that help compensate and flatten out the response curve. Through countless iterations of intricate cavity design, custom development of our own speaker drivers, and rigorous equalization testing, PERI has developed an unmatched expertise in designing amazing audio into small portable form factors.

Audio Cavity

We take immense care in designing our audio cavities to ensure complete air tightness and to maximize air volume and air flow. Maximizing air pressure and directing air flow is important to ensuring that our active speaker driver works in tandem with our custom-tuned passive radiator to produce as much bass as physically possible.

Speaker Frequency Response

We design our own speaker drivers including customization of the cone material, magnet type and size, and coil density. The Duo Slim uses our proprietary XDS-100 slim driver that features at a minimal 10mm depth, XX excursion, XXX air pressure, and frequency response range of XX Hz to XX KHz.

Equalization

The audio Codec used in the Duo Slim is a highly-integrated codec with functional blocks that allow us to maximize audio in small cavities. The codec provides 96dB SNR (A-weighted) and 86dB THD+N with great channel separation of 80-85dB from 10kHz to 1KHz respectively. The Duo Slim maintains its high-fidelity audio quality even when the user enables the case’s charging feature thanks to the enhanced power supply rejection capability of the codec and proprietary circuit design that effectively filters the power supply lines. The 5-tap equalizer and DRC (Dynamic Range Compression) engines work together to provide distortion-free bass, crisp vocals and brilliant mid–range frequency response given the small cavity of the Duo Slim.

At PERI, our passion is Audio, and our expertise is engineering and Power design. The Duo Slim brings together these two elements in one amazing product!
