an iOS app to create a more custom audio experience, such as
personalized EQ settings.

reference design and a development board for debugging, as well as MCU
programming and audio performance measurement. Both boards are
pre-programmed to support a demonstration of high-performance digital
audio playback and voice capture, enabling developers to evaluate a
prototype within minutes. The design can be adapted to any headset form
factor, including earbuds and over-the-ear designs.
