CHALLENGE

A Chinese OEM approached Gore one month before the launch of their product after realizing that the current pressure vent installed in their devices was not providing an adequate airflow.

This would cause speaker distortion issues for the end user, and would therefore damage the reputation of the company and impact device sales if not rectified.

Rapid action was required to resolve the issue and minimize disruption for the client.

 

SOLUTION

Improved Airflow  Eliminates Speaker Distortion - product model PE12

Gore quickly identified that the GORE® Pressure Vent (product model PE12 ) would provide three times the airflow of the original vent product installed in the device. The Gore product was able to effectively equalize the pressure between the inside and outside of the device to eliminate the distortion issue of the speaker/receiver.
