The new GORE® Acoustic Vents Product Model GAW342 lets you take your mobile devices to the next level with greater contamination protection and deeper immersion capabilities while maintaining excellent acoustic performance and consistency.

Recent studies show that 74% of consumers think improved water resistance in their next phone is essential or important. And 14% think it’s the #1 feature.* Upping your game in this area by choosing this latest Gore solution can reduce customers’ product returns and help you stand out from your competitors.

PROFIT FROM THE ADVANTAGES OF OUR NEWEST ACOUSTIC VENT ADVANCEMENT

Product Model GAW342 provides:

  • ENHANCED CONTAMINATION PROTECTION
    Count on greater protection against coffee, soda and low surface tension liquids that can easily wet the protective membrane and compromise waterproof performance.
  • DEEPER IMMERSION PROTECTION
    Your device microphones can be protected from water in depths of 5 meters for 30 minutes. That means our immersion protection is now deeper and more reliable than what the competition offers.
  • LOWER INSERTION LOSS AND VARIABILITY
    This new model maintains exceptional acoustic consistency and low insertion loss as shown below:
    • Low acoustic loss and variability at typical design with inner diameter of 1.6 mm
    • Average insertion loss of less than 1.5 dB at frequency range of 100 Hz to 10 kHz
    • Standard deviation of insertion loss ≤ 0.3 dB at frequency range of 100 Hz to 10 kHz
  • PROVEN TRACK RECORD
    No company has been trusted more than Gore to supply microphone and pressure venting products for mobile electronics supply chains. With billions of these components sold, we have an unmatchable track record.
