  • Publication number: 20190320276
    Abstract: An improved method and system for varying an amount of mechanical coupling in a speakerphone is disclosed. Solutions and implementations provided vary the amount of mechanical coupling between one or more speakers and one or more microphones of the speakerphone to generate high-quality sounds. Implementations include receiving a signal for a first speaker, transforming the signal to send to a second speaker or actuator to generate either complementary or opposing vibration forces to those generated by the first speaker, and an accelerometer to measure the amount of vibration caused by the speaker and adjust the transformation applied to the signal to increase or decrease the amount of mechanical coupling, as needed.

  • Publication number: 20190320277
    Abstract: An improved method and system for varying an amount of mechanical coupling in a speakerphone is disclosed. Solutions and implementations provided vary the amount of mechanical coupling between one or more speakers and one or more microphones of the speakerphone to generate high-quality sounds. Implementations include receiving an input signal, sending a copy of the input signal to a first speaker, performing a signal transformation on the input signal to produce a transformed input signal, and transmitting the transformed input signal to a second speaker, where the first speaker generates a first vibration force in response to the input signal, and the second speaker generates a second vibration force in response to the transformed input signal, the second vibration force being in an opposite direction to that of the first vibration force and offsetting at least part of the first vibration force.

  • Patent number: 8331578
    Abstract: An apparatus, method and computer program, the apparatus including a loudspeaker configured to convert an electrical input signal into an acoustic output signal; a connecting portion configured to interchangeably connect to either a first adapter or a second adapter where the first adapter is configured to fit in a user's ear canal and the second adapter is configured to fit to a user's concha; and a regulator for regulating sound pressure level created by the acoustic output signal at an ear drum of the user in dependence on whether the first adapter or the second adapter is connected to the connecting portion.
