  • Publication number: 20170070804
    Abstract: The Invention is a Wireless Headphone System (WHS), comprising an adapter that is configured for use with headphones having dual connections for cables with one on each headphone. The invention uses that configuration to support a cable with connectors at both ends of the cable that is at least long enough to connect around the user's head between the ear cups of the headphone. Further it incorporates Bluetooth or other wireless electronics and may have a microphone for a full duplex conversation as well as controls. The preferred embodiment comprises a generally symmetrical cable that balances the mass of the device(s) along its length, which can also be used to share media with an additional headphone set that is also plugged into the device.

  • Patent number: 8401197
    Abstract: An audio power display provides a signal and an update rate. An audio power monitoring system comprises a digital display unit including at least one light-emitting display element and a rapid update rate. The digital display unit displays signal levels at the rapid update rate to emphasize the dynamic nature of music. In one embodiment, the display update rate is varied to increase proportionally to increases in signal level, and decrease proportionally to decreases in signal level to further represent the dynamic nature of music.

  • Patent number: 8248745
    Abstract: A method for providing an analog or digital circuit that senses both low and high input voltage and operates to disconnect both line and neutral electrical power connections to a protected device when abnormally low or high voltages are received from a single- or multi-phase power source, and reconnects the protected device when input power has stabilized. The sensing circuit and power supply is functional with voltages up to at least 240 Vac. The nominal 120 Vac circuit is designed to withstand a 6 kilovolt surge without damage. The method does not disconnect the ground line during an out-of-tolerance voltage condition.

  • Patent number: 8200172
    Abstract: A system and method for optimizing the performance of RF devices having a transmitter and an antenna that function at multiple frequencies. Due to regulatory limits on radiation output, and because antenna gain varies with frequency, transmitter power has been constrained by the highest efficiency point of the antenna. According to the present invention, the optimal power setting is empirically determined for each frequency, and stored in a data table. When an operational frequency is selected for the RF device, the data table is consulted to determine the appropriate power setting for the transmitter.

  • Publication number: 20110084793
    Abstract: A single-phase apparatus and method for protecting for all AC power wires/lines and combinations thereof. The present invention prevents (1) the hazardous condition occurring at the wall receptacle, arising from accidental reversal of the line wire with the neutral wire, from adversely affecting at least one peripheral device in the line, and (2) the overheating and destruction of components in an over-voltage protection circuit by providing an efficient circuit configuration which assures a rapid simultaneous disconnect of both the hot line and neutral power lines.

  • Patent number: 7818462
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for transmitting a signal to a remote location. The method splits the signal into a multitude of signals that are transmitted down cables. The split signals are collected into a single signal at the receiving end at the remote location. An apparatus for splitting the signals and collecting the split signals is illustrated.
