Two weeks ago, Noble Audio unveiled two new products that will make audiophiles around the world very happy. The first of them was the Falcon Max TWS earbuds, incorporating innovative solid-state, silicon MEMS-based drivers from xMEMS Labs. These advanced drivers from xMEMS offer exceptional sound quality, phase coherence, and treble extension, further establishing Noble Audio as an innovator in portable audio experiences.

Founded in January 2018, xMEMS Labs is transforming audio with the world’s first solid-state True MEMS speakers for TWS and personal audio devices. Boasting over 140 granted patents globally, xMEMS utilizes a unique monolithic transduction architecture in silicon, ensuring the fastest and most precise microspeakers. This technology eliminates spring and suspension recovery, resulting in better sound clarity, accurate time-domain music reproduction, and an elevated sense of space.

Falcon Max TWS earbuds

The Falcon Max leverages Qualcomm’s latest SoC and supports aptX adaptive audio codec as well as LDAC. The hybrid driver configuration includes xMEMS Cowell for high frequencies and a 10mm dynamic driver for low frequencies, ensuring precise, high-fidelity audio across the frequency range. The Falcon Max is equipped with Bluetooth 5.3, LDAC high-resolution wireless audio codec, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sound, SBC, AAC, aptX adaptive, and LC3.

Noble Audio’s Falcon Max features a sound signature tuned by its acoustic designers and supports Bluetooth 5.3, LDAC high-resolution wireless audio codec, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sound; It also boasts a wireless charging case, multi-point capability, customizable settings, and compatibility with the third generation of Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation. Priced at $270, the Falcon Max started shipping on December 18, 2023.

In addition, Noble Audio introduced the XM1, its first wired USB-C In-Ear Monitors (IEMs), also integrating xMEMS Cowell tweeters for exceptional sound quality. The XM1 features a hybrid 2-way configuration, combining an 8.3mm dynamic driver for bass with xMEMS Cowell for mids and highs.

It aims to bring audiophile-grade sound quality to smartphone users without requiring an additional DAC and amplifier. The XM1’s USB-C high-quality cable with 4-pin connections allows direct connection to smartphones for an optimal listening experience. Priced at $699, the XM1 is expected to ship in January 2024.

xMEMS will be at CES 2024 to showcase its next-gen SSD audio MEMs product.
