  • Patent number: 9191758
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a custom-fit in-ear-monitor (IEM) is provided that utilizes a pre-tuned, single piece driver module to simplify fabrication and reduce cost while insuring that the performance of the IEM consistently meets the acoustic goals set for the device. During fabrication the driver module, the drivers coupled to the module's driver ports, and the crossover circuit are installed in a custom-fit IEM shell such that the module's acoustic output is aligned with the output surface of the IEM shell. After installing the device components within the IEM shell, the shell is sealed.

  • Patent number: 8751180
    Abstract: Performance of mass flow controller may be vulnerable to pressure transients in a flow path to which the controller is coupled for the purpose of controlling the fluid flow. A system and method are provided for reducing or eliminate performance degradations, instabilities, and/or inaccuracies of a mass flow controller caused by changes in the pressure environment. In particular, a method and system are provided for compensating for pressure transients in the pressure environment of a flow path and mass flow controller.

  • Patent number: 8116502
    Abstract: A multi-driver, in-ear monitor is provided that is coupleable to an external audio source, for example via a source input cable or a wireless receiver. A circuit, for example comprising a passive or active crossover circuit, receives the electrical signal from the external audio source and provides separate input signals to the drivers contained within the in-ear monitor. A plurality of sound delivery tubes acoustically couple the audio output from each of the drivers to the acoustic output surface of the in-ear monitor. The in-ear monitor may be configured as a custom fit IEM or configured to accept a removable eartip. The plurality of sound delivery tubes may be comprised of a pair of concentric tubes; a pair of concentric tubes and a discrete tube; or three concentric tubes.
