It's Time for Giving

Holiday season is officially here, which means the season for giving is officially here too! With all sorts of year-end celebrations, holiday parties and gift exchanges, it is easy to get caught up in all the  cheer. But as we celebrate with friends, family and colleagues, it is also important to remember those less fortunate, who may be struggling this time of year.

This festive season can become that much more rewarding through donations or charitable giving. Knowing you have helped someone else create a joyful holiday season for them and their family can be more gratifying than any gift or present received. This is why GROM Audio takes part in giving back to our community every holiday season.

Through donations to local shelters, food banks and other holiday charities, you and your loved ones can also help someone who may be homeless or not have enough money to buy gifts for their children. Even the smallest contribution could impact someone's life, transforming the holiday season from stressful to joyous. So this holiday season, help GROM Audio spread the meaning of Christmas through by reaching out to your local charities!

Happy holidays to all, GROM Audio wishes you a joyful holiday and a wonderful New Year!

The GROM-BT3 Helps Drivers in the US and the UK

Recently GROM Audio's Bluetooth adapter, the GROM-BT3, was featured in one of the UK's premier car magazines, Vehicle Electronics Professional. The UK-based magazine highlighted the benefits of hands-free calling as well as the seamless integration and installation processes of this adapter. Discussing our affordable solutions to modernizing your standard car stereo, VEP magazine showcased how GROM Audio's products can transform your driving experience.

While there may be some distinct differences in driving in the US verses the UK, ie. passing on the right and of course driving on different sides of the road, GROM Audio can still help revamp your outdated car stereo system with ease. Regardless of where you drive your wheels, GROM's car audio interfaces can not only provide entertainment, but can also ensure safe driving through hands-free options and steering wheel button controls. Although the GROM-BT3's main functionality is to allow for Bluetooth wireless connection, this car audio adapter also has two external extension ports for AUX-IN and iPhone/iPod/iPad connection. Therefore, drivers can utilize the convenience of hands-free calling while also having their personal music device connected!

Drivers who live in the UK can find more information and purchase GROM Audio products at gromaudio.co.uk, while North American drivers can find further info at gromaudio.com.

GROM Audio Explains Music File Formats

GROM Audio's car audio adapters support a variety of music file formats, allowing you to enjoy most types of audio while driving. Although most people have come accustom to MP3 files, there are an assortment of other file formats which generate higher quality sound or have less software restrictions.

While MP3 files are reduced in size in order to allow more space in your music library, these files also lose some sound quality through their compression process. Other GROM supported audio files such as AAC formats follow the same lossy compression process, meaning data is removed through downsizing of the file, typically this data loss is unnoticeable to the ear.

But GROM Audio's adapter also allow drivers to appreciate lossless audio files such as FLAC formats. FLAC files, meaning Free Lossless Audio Codec, retain more information to create an audible boost in sound quality. The sound of FLAC files are closer to WAV formats, which are uncompressed files that are also supported by GROM products, including the GROM-MST3, GROM-AND2 and GROM-USB2P. Uncompressed files produce the best sound, but these files can be very large, taking up a considerable amount of space on your MP3 player, mobile device or computer.

So now when you are determining what audio files to download, you can understand the effects that impact the sound coming through you car audio speakers. Through a plethora of adaptable audio files, GROM allows you to listen to the exact sound quality you are looking for while driving.
