  • Publication number: 20170272875
    Abstract: Embodiments include a method comprising forming a pipe including a first end and a second end by forming couplings between a plurality of sections of pipe. A loudspeaker is connected to the first end. The loudspeaker is a mouth simulator loudspeaker. A plurality of microphones are positioned a third distance inside an inside surface of the pipe using a receptacle positioned in the pipe a first distance from the first end and a second distance from the second end. An acoustic output is generated at the loudspeaker. One or more calibration filters are generated using outputs of the plurality of microphones produced in response to the acoustic output.

  • Publication number: 20160354016
    Abstract: An improved microchip spectrophotometer device (101) having a wavelength-sensitive light detector sensor (155) located on a microchip (241) that detects returning broadband light (128) that is narrow-spectrum wavelength filtered by gratings or filtered, such as through an optical collection window (141) on the sensor (155). Optionally, at least a portion of the returning broadband light was produced by one or more solid-state light sources (103, 103A, 103B) incorporated into the microchip device. Multispectral spectroscopic data from the detector is optionally transmitted such as by wire (161), then analyzed by a processor such as a difference unit (167), located on the same microchip or on a processing microchip. Systems incorporating the improved microchip spectrometer, and methods of use are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20160351114
    Abstract: A hybrid display system for a device includes a high resolution display and a low resolution display that are positioned relative to each other to display an image having mixed resolution. A single high resolution display having a size of 1.5 cm by 10 cm and a first cost may be replaced by a hybrid display having the same overall size but using a smaller size (e.g., 1.5 cm by 4 cm) and lower cost for the high resolution display. To achieve the remaining 6 cm in display size, the low resolution display may have a size of approximately 1.5 cm by 6 cm and a lower cost than either of the high resolution displays, such that a combined cost of the high and low resolution displays in the hybrid display makes the second cost lower than the first cost. The high and low resolution displays may use different display technologies to achieve cost and size tradeoffs.

  • Publication number: 20160330541
    Abstract: A pair of wireless of discrete wireless headsets may wirelessly link with each other. At least a portion of data representing content (e.g., audio information) may be received by a first wireless headset and may be communicated to a second wireless headset via the wireless link (e.g., a radio frequency link). The first wireless headset may receive the data representing the content from an internal data store (e.g., non-volatile memory), or from a wired and/or a wireless communications link between the first wireless headset and an external device (e.g., a smartphone, a tablet, a content streaming device, etc.). Ambient noise may impair auditory intelligibility of audio information included in the data representing the content when the audio information is presented only on the first wireless headset. Impaired auditory intelligibility may be mitigated by presenting the audio information on both the first and second wireless headsets to enhance auditory intelligibility.

  • Publication number: 20160328282
    Abstract: An electronic device may include hardware and software configured to detect device failures in the electronic device and log a device error code for detected device failures. Device error codes may be electronically communicated over a communications link to a system external to the electronic device. A client device (e.g., a smartphone, tablet, pad, or PC) may be linked with the electronic device and may be configured to receive the communicated device error codes. The client device may be operative to communicate the received device error codes to another system (e.g., a backend system). The electronic device may link with the backend system and communicate the device error codes to the backend system. Networked computing resources in communication with the backend system may analyze the received error codes to determine whether or not to communicate a device replacement notice. A customer profile may be used as part of the analysis.

  • Publication number: 20160330546
    Abstract: A headset (e.g., on-ear headphone, over-ear headphone, earphones, earbuds, in-ear headphone, etc.) may include one or more transducers (e.g., microphones, accelerometers, vibration sensors, etc.) operative to measure leakage of sound generated by a loudspeaker(s) of the headset (e.g., leakage from an imperfect seal between a headset interface and a pinna interface). The headset may receive content from a memory, a wireless communications link (e.g., Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC) and/or from a wired communications link (e.g., a headphone cable or a USB cable). The headset may include systems to detect the leakage and adjust audio parameters (e.g., frequency response, equalization, etc.) caused by the leakage. Active noise cancellation and/or active leakage path(s) may be used to adjust the audio parameters.

  • Publication number: 20160330537
    Abstract: A hybrid headphone includes a variable aperture device configured to reversibly switch the hybrid headphone between an open-back mode of operation and a closed-back mode of operation. Closed-back mode may be used to provide acoustic isolation from ambient noise to improve audio intelligibility of content due to a reduction and/or elimination of the ambient noise. The hybrid headphone may automatically be switched from the open-back mode to the closed-back mode when ANC is activated or in response to a signal or data. The hybrid headphone may include a semi-open-back mode that is between the open-back and closed-back modes. The variable aperture device may be commanded to an open position for the open-back mode, a closed position for the closed-back mode, and a partially open position for the semi-open mode. The variable aperture device may include a shutter, a hole, a port, or a port including a variable acoustic impedance material.

  • Publication number: 20160295348
    Abstract: Embodiments relate generally to electrical/electronic hardware, computer software, wired and wireless network communications, portable, wearable, and stationary media devices. RF transceivers and/or audio system in each media device may be used to wirelessly communicate between media devices and allow configuration and other data to be wirelessly transmitted from one media device to another media device. The proximity detection system may be configured to detect a presence of a user or multiple users and upon detecting presence, access content on a user device, and record the content while also playing back the content on the media device. One or more user devices in proximity of the media device post detection may wirelessly communicate with the media device and the media device may orchestrate handling of content from those devices or from a wirelessly accessible location such as the Cloud or Internet.
