Dell & Waves

About the Partnership

In 2010, Waves and Dell joined forces to design and create some of the greatest sounding laptops in the world. Waves worked closely with Dell to offer enhanced audio on selected products targeted toward consumers and professionals alike, to deliver a superior audio experience from Dell laptops, desktops, and tablets.

After the first Waves MaxxAudio-powered Dell laptops were warmly received by consumers and critics alike, Dell and Waves teamed up with eleven-time GRAMMY® winning producer Jack Joseph Puig to collaborate and bring bring studio-quality processing to select Dell products.

This expanded cooperation is a clear reflection of Dell’s commitment to set high professional audio standards for consumer electronics. As partners in sound, Dell and Waves are constantly striving to ‘raise the bar,’ and improve performance for media playback, voice communications and Automatic Speech Recognition, leading the way for the industry as a whole.

In 2017, Waves and Dell achieved a groundbreaking milestone by releasing the Dell XPS 27 All-in-One, personally tuned by Jack Joseph Puig and hailed by many reviewers as the best sounding computer ever made. GadgetFlow dubbed it an “incredible auditory experience” and proclaimed, “It sets the new standard in superior sound.” The XPS 27 All-in-One was also an honoree of the CES 2017 Innovation Awards.
