What are Dual / Hybrid Drivers in TWS?

In News 0 comments

Dual drivers refer to a earbud which contains 2 drivers of any type. Hybrid drivers refer usually to 1 dynamic and 1 balanced armature. The dynamic driver usually has a larger membrane size ranging from 5mm to 14mm. As such, dynamic drivers produce more bassy sounds. A balanced armature usually has a very small membrane size making it good at producing high frequencies like vocals.

We are familiar with in-ear monitors or wired cables having multiple drivers. In fact it is not uncommon to hear of an IEM having 3, 4 or even 8 drivers.

But when it comes to TWS, you'll be hard-pressed to find any with 3 drivers and above.

For dual drivers, they are present in the community, but are the rare exception and come with a hefty price tag. Take a look at the Sony WF-1000XM4, priced at $383

Earbuds with dual drivers tend to sound better which is often why it's pricier as well.

One thing of concern is that TWS earbuds often have limited space. Within 1 earbud it should contain a battery, a Bluetooth circuit board and the drivers. The lack of space often restrict companies from being able to squeeze in a dual driver. Hence, earbuds like Apple's airpods or Jabra's Elite 3 just to name a few are all single drivers.
