THX and i-BLADES Announce Partnership to Deliver Purest Mobile Audio Experiences to Consumers with THX AAA™ Technology


LAS VEGAS, CA, January 8th, 2017-- THX Ltd., renowned for the certification of world-class cinemas and consumer electronics, and i-BLADES, Inc., maker of the world’s first Smartcase, today announced that they are working together aiming to deliver the purest quality audio experiences to mobile users through the integration of THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA) technology into the innovative i-BLADES Smartcase.


 i-BLADES Smartcases are a new mobile phone case that have built-in smart technology enabling users to snap-on Smartblades, which add new features to the smartphones. Smartcases are the only truly modular phone cases available that protect and upgrade your smartphone. Each Smartblade delivers new functions or features to the phone.

“Combining THX AAA Technology with i-BLADES Smartcases will enable us to deliver the purest sound to mobile devices using our new platform,” said Jorge Fernandes, CEO, i-BLADES, Inc. “This way mobile consumers get a choice if they want to upgrade their phone’s audio.” Smartcases will be on display at CES PEPCOM.


THX AAA delivers the ultimate no-compromise audio experience with the world’s highest fidelity audio signal, achieving higher peak output power, and maximizing battery life. THX AAA reduces harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortion by 20-40  dB to guarantee a realistic and fatigue-free listening experience. It accomplishes this using a patented feed-forward topology to null conventional distortion and noise mechanisms, resulting in the world’s most linear amplifier. 


“We are excited to partner with i-BLADES to bring THX AAA to a broader consumer audience starting with Samsung Galaxy smartphones,” said Russ Schafer, GM and SVP of Technology, THX Ltd. “i-BLADES shares our passion for innovation and creativity providing unlimited possibilities for consumers to access premium quality audio experiences on the go.”
