Abstract
(EN)
2078328 9114351 PCTABS00007 Headwear that produces sound from a signal is provided by an audio device in addition to the normal features of the headwear. The audio headwear of the present invention may be configured as a visor, goggles or a headband. In a preferred embodiment, the present invention is an audio visor (20) comprising a flexible body (22), a protective layer (26) and two speaker elements (30, 32). The speaker elements are attached between the flexible body and the protective layer attached to cover the bottom side of the flexible body. Thus, the speaker elements do not interfere with the operation of flexible body as a visor. The preferred embodiment also comprises conductor leads (34) and an amplifier to adapt the output of the audio device for the speaker elements. In the second embodiment, the audio headwear further comprises a lens attached to the flexible body to form goggles or sunglasses.
