The 600sqm facility will lead Cardo’s future sound developments to maintain and increase the Company’s edge and bring new generations of sound solutions to its riders, worldwide. To achieve this and support the team’s developments going forward, the new Straubing facility contains fully-furbished sound labs complete with anechoic chamber, ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) room, rapid prototyping lab, Automotive lab, NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) automotive lab, and office space.
Alon Lumbroso, CEO of Cardo Systems, comments: “For many years, Cardo has identified in-helmet audio and acoustics as one of the key factors in today’s riding experience. In 2018, we were the first to bring premium sound by JBL, and now, with the addition of the new Cardo Sound Labs, we aim to increase the audio gap even further.”
