Apple vendor releases the software development kit for creating Lightning headsets

Almost simultaneously with the alleged photo of the Lightning EarPods, of which we speak separately, there is also the release by Cirrus Logic, which provides Apple with the audio chips for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, software development kits for third-party suppliers parts that want to produce certified Lightning headphones, therefore with the Mfi brand.

Headphones of this type are certainly not new, and even Apple produces gi with Ligtning connector; clear, however, that if iPhone 7 were to really determine the end of the 3.5mm jack input, many manufacturers would be interested in entering this business.

Specifically, the kit released by Cirrus Logic shows, first of all, the advantages of Lightning headphones, compared to conventional analog headphones based on the universal 3.5 mm socket. For example, fully digital connectivity ensures clear audio without distortion resulting from any interference with analog signals traveling through the cable. In addition, Lightning headphones can interact with an iOS app to create a more personalized audio experience, with the possibility for the user to manage customized equalization settings.

This codec uses a 114 dB digital-analog converter capable of providing up to 35 mW stereo, as well as improving the performance of the microphone and, in general, the quality of the audio on call.</p><p><img class=
