Apple Venturing into Over-Ear Headphones
Apple is now taking a look at the possibility of creating Over-Ear headphones. Apple and their new patent titled “System and method for automatic right-left ear detection for headphones” might just be a new game changer in the market. The premise is that the new pair of headphones will soon be able to detect which ear cup is right or left based on how you put them on and to add, it’s completely reversible.
With five microphones on each ear cup, this innovative technology will have the ability to detect and determine which ear cup is which. Once the headphones have determined their placement, the headphones can also detect your voice and automatically cancel out background noise. The new patent can possibly also detect proper right and left stereo signals for each proper ear.
That being said, there is no clear indication if Apple is planning to use this technology in future products soon but it is something to look forward to as the new tech and patent are promising. It’s also about time that apple hops on the over-ear headphone wagon.
