Audio Developer Conference 2021

LE Audio – The New Standard in Bluetooth® Audio Technology

Presenter: Martin Woolley, Bluetooth SIG Developer Relations Senior Manager – EMEA 


Wireless audio was one of the first-ever applications of Bluetooth technology. It was originally based on the older Bluetooth BR/EDR and provides one-to-one audio streaming between two devices such as a smartphone and a pair of headphones.

LE Audio is a new Bluetooth audio technology. It uses the more efficient Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), has a new and better audio codec, and supports completely new use cases such as audio sharing and broadcast audio. The new standard is defined in a series of technical specifications which collectively provide a generic audio framework for next-generation wireless audio products.

This talk will review LE Audio and its constituent technical parts and specifications.
