  • Patent number: 10110982
    Abstract: A cover for a wearable personal acoustic device includes a fabric cover shaped to receive and enclose a wearable personal acoustic device, and an identification tag, such as an RFID tag or optical tag, secured to the fabric cover. The fabric cover includes a stretchable material that is acoustically transparent. The fabric cover may include a closure mechanism that can provide an opening through which the wearable personal acoustic device is received or removed and a closed state in which the wearable personal acoustic device is enclosed by the fabric cover. The identification tag stores an identifier associated with the fabric cover and communicates with the wearable personal acoustic device through an identification reader. The identifier may be associated with a physical property of the fabric cover or an operational parameter of the wearable personal acoustic device. The operational parameter optionally is definable by a user.

  • Patent number: 9768746
    Abstract: A user interface includes a rotatable ring for controlling a function on an associated device, and a support ring for supporting the rotatable ring. The support ring includes a plurality of biasing elements, and a plurality of engagement members rotatably mounted on the biasing elements and configured to engage the rotatable ring so as to preload the biasing elements and thereby (i) biasing the rotatable ring toward a center position in which a central axis of the rotatable ring is coincident with a central axis of the support ring, and (ii) increasing resistance to rotational movement of the rotatable ring.
