Maybe a minor improvement in TV sound, which would be good. Unlikely to affect serious audio.

Do their audio pixies use oil of snake, or do they stick to Guinness like in the old world

Sounds like the tiny elements are digitally reconstructing a pressure wave, at a great savings in excursion.

If they can indeed do that, then their claims would seem to be possible.

PS: I can't imagine what could be worse: Getting through that video's soundtrack or a session of the Chinese water torture.

You would need a lot of those little chips to synthesise the wavefront at a distance far enough from the "point souce" that the mems elements can actually move enough air.
The stock price shot up today so the posting here (and elsewhere?) could have made someone rich

If you want decent bass then however you do it you need to move a lot of air. I can't see MEMS doing that - they are too tiny and can't move very much.

Reads like a sales pitch of the usual marketing hype, in part meant to boost stock sales prices.
