August 25 2020, 04:10
Meridian Audio is collaborating with Human Horizons, a premium smart all-electric vehicle brand from China, to deliver an immersive in-car audio experience for its HiPhi vehicle range. The strategic partnership sees Meridian supporting the HiPhi vehicle system design with a suite of proprietary technologies, which combine to deliver a state-of-the-art listening experience. Loudspeakers are strategically positioned and seamlessly integrated into the automotive interior, allowing each passenger to enjoy a quality audio experience, no matter where they are in the vehicle.

"HiPhi’s ambitions in vehicle engineering and design makes this a very exciting partnership for us," comments John Buchanan, CEO of Meridian. "Our customers already enjoy high performance audio in their home, and with this new collaboration they will be able to embrace the same experience in their HiPhi vehicle."
Featuring a specifically engineered 600-watt amplifier, Meridian Re-Q and Meridian Digital Precision technologies combine to deliver rich and detailed sound quality at all times. No fewer than 12 independent channels are deployed in conjunction with Meridian’s Horizon technology for complete immersion and improved balance throughout the vehicle’s interior. Meridian’s Perfect Balance technology ensure the best audio performance at any listening volume and enables the high-performance subwoofer to handle the low-end frequencies, while the mid-range drivers and tweeters ensure that every instrument and every artist can be appreciated in full. And an optimal audio experience will always be delivered with Meridian's Intelli-Q technology which provides data-driven equalization that optimizes audio playback within the cabin.
Human Horizons' first all-electric product under the HiPhi brand, the HiPhi X is a new-generation of vehicle based on the company's concept of Human Oriented Architecture, which is capable of continuous deep learning and software improvements. With the combination of Human Horizon’s automotive expertise and Meridian’s recognized sound quality, the new HiPhi X will benefit from an ideal combination of technology and luxury, which both companies expect will bring unprecedented experiential elements to users.

"Incorporating Meridian’s breakthrough technology – which you have to hear to believe – into our vehicles exemplifies our innovative spirit and will categorically set us apart from others in the industry," says Ding Lei, CEO and founder at Human Horizons and HiPhi. "We are revolutionizing future automotive interior design by radically pushing boundaries."
The HiPhi is set for production by the end of 2020 and will go on sale in China in 2021. The HiPhi X vehicle will be launched globally at the Beijing Auto Show.
