A tailor-made wireless protocol for HiFi audio


WiFi and Bluetooth are off-the-shelf wireless technology. They are working on 2.4GHz ISM band. ISM bands are license-free, without regulation approval, so they have serious interference. WiFi is design for home network, it is not an appropriate technology for audio streaming. 

With our 20+ year wireless experience, we reform DECT protocol for HiFi audio application, adding audio mandatory elements, completely resolve wireless audio problem.

We have put key audio factors into DECT audio protocol :

  • High accurate timing information
  • Low master clock jitter by linear PID control
  • Reduce switching noise by minimize radio transceiver on/off
  • Constant data rate, use packet loss concealment instead of data resend
  • Lower internal EMI noise, reduce radio power to quarter
  • Regulated processor task flow, running at low speed, share loading by 3 processors architecture : DECT processor for wireless link, 2xDSP for signal processing, CPU for operation

The best wireless protocol for audio product


Highly accurate timing characteristic

DECT brings perfect sound because of its highly accurate timing characteristic. Unlike Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or WiSA, DECT has a time resolution down to 0.1uS. ONEaudio can keep speaker synchronization as low as 0.5uS, which is a hundred time better than Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.


Dedicated channel, no bandwidth sharing, the most stable data rate

Unlike from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, DECT has dedicated channels with no sharing of data bandwidth. This ensures sound stability and quality. DECT does not suffer from cloudy channel signals and data sharing congestion which often happen in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.


Multi-channel support to create true 5.1 surround

DECT dedicated simultaneous multi-channel broadcasting protocol, each speaker can have its own dedicated channel to replicate a wired system. Delivering to each speaker the sound intended reducing lag and improving sound quality!

    • This enables us to reproduce the sound from source the way it was meant to be heard
    • Movies and videos played in 5.1 is reproduce in true 5.1, Dolby or DTS cinematic effect!
    • Music played in stereo is be reproduced in HD stereo or true 3D sound stage!

Ultra-low latency transmission

DECT protocol is design for instant voice communication. Short time delay between transmitter and receiver bring no visible lip sync in movie play. ONEaudio surround set can achieve same level as of wired AV system.




Dream go true, HiFi speaker can be portable

WiFi and WiSA never are battery operation, only DECT wireless speaker can be powered by battery. A full charge of ONEmini speaker has 100 hours play time ! 

By DECT technology, we have the World’s only TRUE wireless surround, without speaker cable and power cord. The true wireless 5.1 technology bring us award winning 2016 : CES Innovation Award and DECT Innovation Award.



Low radiation, Low emission, Long range

DECT is low radiation device, only 1/10 of WiFi and 1/20 of WiSA, put your body in safe place.

DECT is not high data rate protocol, it can guarantee a constant data rate for lossless audio streaming. Even DECT is working at 1/10 power of WiFi, it can have longer range and better penetration.

Secondary re-transmission degraded the sound quality


Bluetooth is merged L+R transmission

Bluetooth stereo speakers run on master and slave configuration. 

Master speaker is primary channel receive compressed L+R audio. Master speaker decompress L+R audio, retrieve R audio, compress R audio and re-transmit to slave speaker.

Slave speaker R audio has serious distortion and time error. You can only listen L channel and R channel sound on master speaker and slave speaker, but you never experience sound stage and sound imaging.
