GN Store Nord has established a strategic partnership with German audEERING, a company that aims to set global standards in AI-based soundscape- and voice analyses. 

Initially, GN Audio and audEERING will engage into joint development of AI based solutions to enhance the GN Audio offering in both professional and consumer markets. 

With its artificial intelligence-based technology, audEERING sets global standards in intelligent audio and speech analysis. This includes automated recognition of emotional states as well as acoustic scene analysis in real time. Under the Jabra brand, GN Audio develops and markets intelligent audio solutions such as professional headsets and speakerphone solutions engineered to support business productivity as well as consumer headsets and earbuds for calls, music and media.

With this technology and Jabra’s leading sound quality, GN Audio will be able to develop intelligent audio solutions that transform the way a headset can assist both call center employees, professionals and consumers in meaningful new ways.

Soundscape analyses and interpreting human emotions will play an increasingly important role in the intelligent audio solutions that we develop for professional and consumer use. With this partnership we will be able to accelerate innovation in this domain and bring ever stronger solutions to the market,” says René Svendsen-Tune, CEO of GN Audio.  

audEERING was founded in 2012 as a spin-off of the Technical University of Munich. Today, audEERING is the only European company driving innovation in the field of intelligent audio analysis and emotional artificial intelligence.
