Biometrics Ear module 5.0

The BE5.0 introduces Sonion’s advanced Biometric technology to consumer hearables. It adopts a modular design with a compact form factor that can be utilized for TWS, wireless and wired devices.

Access to real-time, accurate Biometric data helps users assess their health and fitness during any type of everyday activity or physical exercise. It also allows them to identify signs of potential health issues, facilitating early intervention and lower medical costs.

Sensor dimentions with window:
14-pin, 0.6mm pitch 5.80 x 3.90 x 3.40 mm

Supply voltage: 2.8 – 5.5 VDC

Interface: 400 kHz I2C or 57.6 kbps UART

Vital signs

Measures heart rate and heart rate variability (R-R interval) and is ready to measure blood oxygen saturation (SpO2).

Highly accurate

Uses Photoplethysmography (PPG) signals and versatile automatic preprocessing to produce robust and highly accurate measurements.


Data remains robust in a wide variety of conditions, from everyday indoor activities to intense sport exercises.


Advanced algorithms developed by Valencell process incoming data in real-time to continuously monitor vital signs

Small & power efficient

Small enough to fit any in-concha hearable on the market and extremely power efficient

Ideal location

The ear is one of the best locations to measure with PPG: high perfusion, less movement and lack of sunlight


“Activity trackers may support behavior change through education and feedback about baseline and ongoing physical activity levels and the ensuing increase in accountability.”
