  • Publication number: 20220248120
    Abstract: A sound output device includes: a device main frame in which at least a speaker is disposed; and an attachment aid member that is joined to the device main frame. In the sound output device, the attachment aid member includes an annular support portion at least a part of which is inserted into a cavum concha, and the support portion includes a contact portion that comes into contact with a part of an ear in the cavum concha while being elastically deformed. With this arrangement, the contact portion of the support portion inserted into the cavum concha comes into contact with a part of the ear in the cavum concha while being elastically deformed. Accordingly, it is possible to attach the sound output device to the ear, using the attachment aid member, regardless of the size and the shape of the ear. Thus, user-friendliness of the sound output device can be increased, and a state in which the sound output device is stably attached to the ear can be secured.
