Abstract: A magnetoresistance effect type magnetic head apparatus has a magnetoresistance effect sensing element, means for applying a bias magnetic field to the sensing element, a detecting circuit for obtaining a detecting signal, a low pass filter for deriving an unwanted signal component from the detecting signal, and means for applying a cancelling magnetic field to the sensing element so as to eliminate the unwanted signal component. An additional sensing element may also be provided to detect an external magnetic field, and a corresponding signal is generated which is applied to a first sensing element so as to cancel the effects of the external magnetic field.

Abstract: An electro-acoustic transducer, such as a loudspeaker, a microphone, or the like, comprises a magnetic circuit having at least one air gap, a current conductor disposed in the air gap of the magnetic circuit to form a voice coil which is traversed by magnetic flux, and a vibratory structure mechanically coupled to the voice coil. The vibratory structure is comprised of a heat resistant film containing an epoxide-modified resin in which a heterocyclic compound containing a polyimide group is the main component. The voice coil is non-adhesively secured to the vibratory structure. For example, the voice coil is formed of a conductive substrate onto which the vibratory structure is coated and from which portions have been etched to form a generally spiral-shaped conductor. In one embodiment, the vibratory structure is a diaphragm; and in another embodiment, the vibratory structure is a bobbin having the voice coil wound thereon.
