Opportunity
Audio UX® worked with Byton to create a symphony of sound design for in-vehicle alerts.

A Symphony of Smart Sounds

The future of mobility meets The Future of Audio Branding™. Never before has the automotive experience been so interconnected and intelligent as with the Byton M-Byte. The resulting symphony of in-car interactions includes a suite of over 40 unique earcons optimized for brand-fit and driver safety.The BYTON M-BYTE in Blue.

Branded Moments

We designed every audio interaction in the M-Byte with a consistent vision. Key Branded Moments, like first powering on the vehicle, or charging to full, embody Byton distinctly.

Safe & Sound

We reimagined what traditionally generic automotive auditory warnings could sound like through the Byton lens. The result is a set of highly unique and premium alerts that reflect the Byton brand identity and meet global regulatory requirements.

Understatement

Sound for a Multi-Sensory Experience

The M-Byte is envisioned to bring peace of mind to your daily commute. We developed the sound to complement Byton's understated industrial and digital design. The "Understatement" soundscape was composed to paint the auditory picture of what it would sound—and feel—like to be in a Byton. "Understatement" is composed of human breath, string textures, and soft, clean synthetic instruments.
