GRAS Sound & Vibration, the leading innovator of acoustic sensors since 1994, is adding to its existing family of measurement microphones for wind tunnel testing – the new Ultra-Thin Precision (UTP) microphones. The UTP microphones - based on a revolutionizing, patented technology - combine the high precision and reliability of GRAS measurement microphones with the need for extremely low-profiled (1 mm) microphones with minimum turbulence influence.

Innovation and rapid expansion is not only a question of having the right skills and ideas. You also need the right tools and instruments that can support and validate your findings as you test new models.

This is the case for Chinese automotive manufacturer Aiways, one of the newcomers on the global automotive scene. Using microphones from GRAS Sound & Vibration has allowed for quick and efficient tire noise and interior noise testing.

At GRAS, we have taken the required precautions set forth by the Danish government to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, and we are closely monitoring updates regarding COVID-19 from health officials and are actively working to ensure we are able to continue to service our customers’ demand for acoustic sensors.

Today, GRAS Sound & Vibration announced its partnership with Sound Hub Denmark. An opportunity to join a world-class sound and acoustics growth hub in Struer together with other players in the sound industry such us Bang & Olufsen, GN Audio (Jabra) and Harman Lifestyle among others.

Denmark-Based Company Will Continue to Focus on Growth and Global Market Leadership in Measurement Microphones

GRAS Sound & Vibration, the world leader in automotive acoustic sensors, today announced the launch of the GRAS 147AX CCP Rugged Pressure Microphone for engine noise testing and the GRAS 147EB CCP X-Rugged Microphone for wheelhouse brake noise testing. Together with the versatile GRAS 146AE CCP Free-field microphone, GRAS now has the strongest and most comprehensive range of microphones for all automotive NVH applications.

Achieving data consistency across multiple test locations can be challenging. For a strong brand like Jabra, failures on production lines can have fatal consequences for product releases.

- Jabra and GRAS have been working closely together for several years to meet these challenges, and in this beneficial cooperation GRAS measurement solutions have proven their value.
