Apple's headphones: Let's look at the plans in USPTO


Do you remember that Apple bought Beats by Dre and suddenly got the headphones market around the world? Since this is, the company has pulled out a pair of wireless headphones – beats the ear, not Apple branded. Beats was the biggest brand of earbuds, but still – now Apple sells its headphones in the same shop with Beats audio equipment. Now, Apple's Beats flagship reads to release its own version: on-ear headphones.

Perhaps they saw that Microsoft announced a pair of Surface Headphones and decided it was time. Maybe Apple had a pair of headphones for years and now they've just found a reason to give them something. Perhaps – and this is probably the most likely case – Apple keeps its patents up to date with the USPTO and will not plan to release headphones any time soon.

Regardless, we took a look at the plans using the patent of Apple's technical idea of ​​patent the system and method for automatic right-left ear detection for headphones Ne. So it's not really the headphones itself, but also the most interesting feature on board.

Like the AirPod you see in the Apple Store or TV, Apple's headphones – if they see the light of day – don't go without their unique features. If this patent is any indication, these headphones will not have a suitable left or right cover, both can be selected as left or right.

The automatic detection of the ear covered by each container is something that each pair of headphones can do. Here I use my eyes and hands to put the right ear in a right ear. One day, I'il be as happy as the lady on patent drawings. Someday I'll take his smile!

You can find more Patent Application Publication information (ALL INFORMATION) yourself by calling the Pub. US2018.0324514 Al, November 8, 2018 release date. No. 15 / 588,258, filed May 5, 2017;

Patently as stated by Apple, this system includes a pair of headphones: the earpieces, a headphone detector, an audio activity detector (VAD) and a microphone selector (beamformer). Among other small components, this device also includes a noise suppressor # 133 and an AGC controller. All of this will inevitably sport as well as Bluetooth, and the mobile device must work.
