Together, we can push the barriers of sound
Audio systems experts
Understanding the intricacies of audio system architecture enables Peerless to identify our customers’ specific requirements and constraints for any new loudspeaker system. Our expertise in the relationship between transducers, audio modules, and software empowers us to develop components that ensure optimal performance. Because we understand applications, outcomes, and cost trade-offs, we build high-quality components that deliver the best possible performance – at the right price.
Peerless began as the component division of Tymphany, consistently evolving with every technological change since 2004. Our roots date back to 1926, with the founding of Peerless in Denmark. Our components are used in over 90% of the millions of finished products Tymphany produces each year, and they are also supplied directly to our customers for use in their own production. Today, we are proud to partner with leading global brands, creating innovative audio solutions for the next generation.
Working with Peerless
When you work with Peerless, you partner with one team for end-to-end design and technical support. Our goal is to provide customers with a remarkable development experience. The journey begins in the early stages of product development with close coordination between your team and ours to ensure all design decisions are considered.
The Product Development Journey
Advanced simulation techniques are used to model and test component design which allows us to predict its acoustic behavior and iterate its design. Every care and attention to detail is taken to optimize our product to maximize its performance, whatever the constraint.
Iterative design and testing within a virtual environment leads to more efficient and cost-effective system design and development. Peerless employs industry-standard tools like COMSOL in conjunction with our proprietary custom extensions.
Prototyping & component finalization
Once the simulation phase is complete, we move to prototyping to fine-tune the design, continuing to iterate until the desired performance is achieved. Our development labs use state-of-the-art equipment such as anechoic chambers and tools such as Klippel 3D laser scanners, interferometers, and near-field measurement tools.
Our approach to rapid prototyping and testing accelerates product development, improving accuracy in the outcome, and bringing your concept into reality.
It is critical to our process to ensure not only the optimization of performance but also robust repeatability in mass production. This standard is maintained across all manufacturing sites within our organization, regardless of where the product is built.
Through our globalized manufacturing and supply chain with over 800 suppliers, we provide the components you require when you need them. Peerless follows stringent quality control processes during manufacturing to ensure that every component meets performance, reliability, and safety requirements. The production line is continuously monitored to ensure that components are within specified tolerances and meet required specifications.
Peerless’s world-class infrastructure
Headquartered in Taiwan, our global footprint includes six world-class acoustic research and development centers with over 700 engineers and designers, four Industry 4.0 smart manufacturing factories, and six field support and sales offices.
Our fully connected operations leverage digital technologies and data-driven processes for more efficient and agile systems. Predictive analytics help anticipate and prevent potential issues, reducing production downtime. This connectivity extends to the entire supply chain, ensuring real-time material tracking for timely resource availability.
Our manufacturing factories have multiple certifications, including ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environment Management, ISO 45001 People, Health & Safety, IATF 16949 Automotive Quality Management, and ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management.
Tomorrow’s expertise, today
Peerless has an unwavering commitment to innovation, demonstrated by our global team working in Research, Development, and Design Centers across the world. Our experts are dedicated to continually pushing the boundaries of audio technology. This dedication is well-documented, with over 150 patents to our name.
Peerless heavily invests in research and development, embracing new technologies as they become available. Our designs must meet current customer needs while anticipating the next generation of products the market will demand.
Through research, market analysis, and a deep understanding of customer needs and market trends, the Tymphany iNSIGHTS group identifies white space opportunities in the audio industry. Peerless is developing next-generation products that leverage cutting-edge technologies, materials, and design principles for enhanced performance and unique audio experiences.
Innovation in action
Peerless’s upcoming HVS series of transducers features a range of sustainability improvements to typical transducers.
An over-molded thermoplastic surround that eliminates adhesive bonds between the cone and surround, resulting in a 79% overall reduction in adhesives. The proprietary high-performance, thin-ply glass fiber cone material in the HVS series replaces paper cones to prevent wastewater pollution and improves batch-to-batch cosmetic and audio consistency. The use of lower-grade rare earth (RE) materials in the magnet assembly allows for a 35% reduction in RE material volume, while still delivering comparable performance. The HVS magnet assembly is also optimized to increase acoustic output, achieving 125% greater efficiency in dB/cc per volume of RE material used.
Our constant desire to solve problems drives our R&D team to think about every detail at every level. Considering new materials and ways to overcome the challenges of a constantly moving market.
With the challenge of the professional racetrack driver comes the issue of cone fatigue and controlling asymmetric cone breakup.
The cone material in our upcoming FPP series is injection-molded from polypropylene beads for smooth, mold-resistant, protective skin that is also resistant to UV rays and water. The cone is optimized using extensive COMSOL modeling to retain rigidity while reducing the overall mass.
The waveguide in the FPP coaxial transducer is integrated into the cone and allows for customization to achieve a targeted dispersion pattern, making add-on waveguides unnecessary.
Cost and production advances
Peerless continuously innovates, developing a manufacturing strategy that modernizes and adapts to market needs, both in the production process and in response to global demand. This includes recent groundbreaking advances in automation, enhancing our common manufacturing strategy to accommodate everything from ultra-high demand to the lower volume needs of specialized products, all fed from a global NPI approach. This versatility means we can build whatever you need, wherever you need it, ensuring consistency across all our sites.
The modular design of our HVS series limits component count, leading to lower costs, improved lead time, and more efficient quality control. Our enhanced automated assembly process not only reduces operations and costs but also significantly increases UPPH. And, as a vertically integrated company, Peerless’s insourcing of components like cones, surrounds, and frames reduces magnet costs significantly over similar drivers in the market.
