Diz-Based Solutions are Ideal for New iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Which are Shipping Without a Headphone Jack

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, Sept. 26, 2016 – The rumor was recently confirmed: Apple has unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with no 3.5 mm headphone jack.

As a result, Eleven Engineering, Inc. (www.elevenengineering.com), a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for home theater, multi-room, portable, professional, 12-volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, announces SKAA Diz solutions for quality-centric headphone brands. Diz has been designed and engineered for those brands wishing to enter the market with wireless headphones that take advantage of Apple’s Lightning high-quality digital audio.

“Apple invents the future by setting fire to the past,” said John Sobota, Eleven Engineering CEO. “It's time for the industry to let go of the analog 3.5 mm jack, and it took Apple to make the bold move. It’s a fact that the Lightning connection on the Apple iPhone 7 will enable much better-sounding headphones to be built than the old 3.5 mm jack ever could…digital audio, amplifiers right next to the driver, multiple drivers with advanced bi-amping techniques. All of these techniques are now possible, thanks to Lightning.”

On the wireless side, while Bluetooth remains viable for low-end headphones, many quality-centric headphone brands are concluding that using lackluster Bluetooth makes less and less sense as Apple continues to raise the quality bar.

“This is why we created the SKAA Diz transmitter for Lightning,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering director of sales, North America. “Diz takes full advantage of Lightning’s high-quality audio and wirelessly transmits that pristine digital stream to speakers and headphones built to the SKAA standard. Products using Lightning require Apple’s MFi approval, but the already-proven Diz transmitter makes this process quick and painless.”

Brands wishing to ship wireless Lightning headphones can move to market very quickly by taking advantage of Eleven’s headphone reference designs and Eleven’s already-proven Diz transmitter.  Diz is designed to work with iPhones, iPods and iPads with a Lightning connector and running iOS 7 or later.  Diz is designed to transmit audio to all SKAA-compatible receivers, including speakers and headphones.

“Also, look for Diz-based products which let you enjoy your existing favorite headphones with your brand new iPhone 7, which are coming soon,” Whitehead added.

SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. SKAA navigates hostile environments saturated in wireless traffic with best-in-class reliability. SKAA delivers uninterrupted audio with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.

With SKAA, the receivers (speakers / headphones) are in charge of selecting which transmitter to listen to.  There’s no pairing.

“Diz doesn’t require Wi-Fi, and it has incredibly low latency,” Whitehead continued. “It has an indoor range of nearly 50 feet (15 meters), while the outdoor range can be even more. Diz can send audio to up to four SKAA receivers at the same time with rock-solid reliability.  Compare that with standard Bluetooth which can only send audio to one solitary device, often with poor range and flaky reliability.  SKAA’s audio quality is always 480 kbps while Bluetooth’s is always lower and actually varies depending on environment and circumstances. You can use up to five SKAA transmitters in your home at the same time.  That’s up to 20 speakers or headphones.”

SKAA is easy to use —all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box. “It’s also highly flexible, being compatible with a fantastic breadth of audio sources,” concluded Sobota. “Plus, SKAA receivers can effortlessly switch from source to source. And don’t forget rock-solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound. SKAA.com is the source for all things SKAA.”

Eleven Engineering Proactively Addresses Apple iPhone’s Lightning Audio Bug with a Program to Help SKAA Users Who Have Been Affected

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada, Nov. 10, 2016 – Eleven Engineering, a market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio for home theater, multi-room, portable, professional, 12-volt (car, truck, motorcycle, power sports, marine) and gaming applications, is addressing Apple’s Lightning audio bug found in newer iPhones and its affect on SKAA® Diz transmitters.

“The bug occurs when outputting audio from the iPhone via the Lightning port to dock speakers, USB speakers, external DAC headphone amplifiers, wireless audio transmitters, and other Lightning audio products,” explained John Sobota, Eleven Engineering CEO. “SKAA’s Diz transmitter is affected and so are other third party products. Since many Diz users are affected, we are being very pro-active here - I’m sure Apple is working diligently to fix this bug, but in the meantime we will support our customers with an innovative program to get them back up and running immediately. We want to assure all of our customers that we are working hard to protect them from this issue."

According to Sobota, this Apple iPhone bug has already been logged with Apple. “From what we’ve been able to gather from multiple Internet reports and our own investigation, the iPhone occasionally fails to send all of the audio data it should to the plugged-in audio device,” Sobota continued. “This USB communication protocol error causes periodic clicks and dropouts in the audio and then the audio may stop altogether."

This bug affects 44.1 kHz audio output only (nearly all music files are 44.1 kHz). It does not affect 48 kHz audio (nearly all videos have 48 kHz audio). “So, a good way to confirm if your phone has this bug is to use Diz to listen to some music and then watch a video,” Sobota explained. “If you hear audio problems when playing music, but not when playing video, your phone likely has this particular bug.”

Currently, devices affected by the bug include some (not all) iPhone 6S and 6S plus models, depending on the manufacturer of the A-series processor chip used in the phone. This bug does not appear in the iPhone 5 or 5S. So far, Eleven Engineering has not seen this bug show up in iPads or iPods. Sobota expects that some (not all) iPhone SEs are affected.  It appears this bug affects all iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models.

“We think that the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and SE have been sold with two versions of the A-series processor chips,” Sobota added. “One of these chips carries the bug and one does not. Samsung versions of the A-series chip do not have the bug. TSMC versions of the A-series chip have the bug. We think the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and SE may have launched with the Samsung (bug free) chip but part way through their product life, a change was made to the TSMC chip.  It appears the iPhone 7 and 7 plus launched with the TSMC chip from day one, so it's likely all 7-series iPhones have the bug.  This is the best information we have currently, but we will keep updating our bulletin on SKAA.com/TLC with the latest information as we get it."

Explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering Director of Sales, North America, “For SKAA customers who own Diz transmitters and who don’t want to wait for Apple’s fix, Eleven has created the Lightning Bug Rescue program. Customers should send a short message to Eleven Engineering via the contact form at SKAA.com/TLC with ‘Lightning Bug Rescue’ in the subject line and the Tx Version of their Diz transmitter in the body of the message (this may be found in the SKAA cmd app’s info page —SKAA cmd is available on the iTunes App Store). Eleven will then respond with several options to get the customer back up and running again - immediately.”

Sobota continued, “Our R&D team kicked into high gear when we learned about the Lightning bug. Our research revealed that the clicks and dropouts in the audio caused by the Lightning bug can actually be masked. If you know the bug is there, you can react to it appropriately when it happens. Our team invented a way to effectively conceal the bug with an ingenious firmware modification to Diz. Of course, like our customers, we are waiting with anticipation for Apple fix the root cause. But in the mean time we are offering a Diz trade-in program for any customer who is stuck with the Lightning bug and doesn’t want to wait. The concealment firmware is excellent - it makes the artifacts caused by the bug virtually impossible to hear. Users may want to know whether a Diz transmitter, modified with this concealment firmware, will still work OK once Apple fixes the Lightning bug. Well, the answer is yes, it absolutely will.”

SKAA is the new wireless HiFi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering, Inc. SKAA transmitters work with iOS & Android mobile devices, Mac & Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. SKAA navigates hostile environments saturated in wireless traffic with best-in-class reliability. SKAA delivers uninterrupted audio with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.

Recently, Apple unveiled iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, both without the familiar 3.5 mm headphone jack.  Eleven Engineering responded with SKAA Diz solutions for quality-centric headphone brands.

“This is why we created the SKAA Diz transmitter for Lightning,” said Whitehead. “Diz takes full advantage of Lightning’s high-quality audio and wirelessly transmits that pristine digital stream to speakers and headphones built to the SKAA standard. Products using Lightning require Apple’s MFi approval, but the already-proven Diz transmitter makes this process quick and painless. SKAA cmd is the perfect app to control wireless headphones and speakers which take advantage of Lightning’s superior audio quality.”

With SKAA, the receivers (speakers / headphones) are in charge of selecting which transmitter to listen to; with SKAA there’s no pairing. 

SKAA is ridiculously easy to use — all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box. “It’s also highly flexible, being compatible with a fantastic breadth of audio sources,” concluded Sobota. “Plus, SKAA receivers can effortlessly switch from source to source.
