Apple Working On Self-Adjusting Earphones?

  • Automatic sound adjustment
  • Compensates for specific fit
  • Uses electrical current and acoustic indicators

Apple’s recently filed patent hints that the Cupertino company maybe planning to develop earphones that automatically adjust depending on the user’s ears.

Apple’s recently filed patent hints that the Cupertino company maybe planning to develop earphones that automatically adjust depending on the user’s ears.

According to reports, the headphones will use different factors to adjust the sound including electrical current and acoustic indicators gathered using a microphone on the headphone, signal frequency and more. A software will then evaluate these signals and adjust balance, equalizer settings and noise cancellation response to name a few to compensate for the less-than-perfect seal.

Aside from automatically changing sound output levels, the patent would also notify users about the fit of their headphones so that they can physically correct the position of the headphones.

Again as with other patents filed before, we advise to take this information with a bit of scepticism but it can’t be denied that if Apple succeeds in putting this technology into its products, it would certainly make its products more attractive especially to those who use their iOS devices as music players.
