World’s Smallest Speakers unveiled by Panasonic

IMs Are The Preferred Choice The movie ‘Honey I shrunk the kids’ is sure to fall to shame soon, keeping in mind the shrinking size of the modern day gadgets and gizmos.

Apparently Panasonic claims to have developed the world’s smallest micro-speaker. Their previous record holder was 2.5 mm, and at a mere 1.5 mm thickness and a size of 2 x 1 cm, they claim that the PED (Panasonic Electronic Device) loses no reduction of sound quality since its “diaphragm is inserted on the top and bottom of its magnet, rather than making the magnet smaller.”

According to Panasonic, the tiny speaker will boast the same great sound quality you’ve come to expect from a speaker the size of a postage stamp.

Intended for use in mobile phones, the Panasonic uber-small micro-speaker go into production May 2007.
