Title
(EN) HEARING AID GLASSES USING ONE OMNI MICROPHONE PER TEMPLE
(FR) LUNETTES D'APPAREIL AUDITIF POSSÉDANT UN MICROPHONE OMNIDIRECTIONNEL PAR BRANCHE
Abstract
(EN)
Hearing glasses with a left temple and a right temple connected to a front portion supporting a pair of lenses, at least one temple with one single microphone and a processor connected to the single microphone. The single microphone is an omnidirectional microphone and located in the temple such that, when the hearing glasses are worn by a human's head where the at least one temple is at a predetermined side of the head, the single microphone can receive sound substantially unblocked by the head from sound sources both at a left and right frontal side of the head, as well as from one back side of the head corresponding to the predetermined side of the head.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des lunettes d'appareil auditif possédant une branche droite et une branche gauche reliées à une partie frontale servant de support à une paire de verres, au moins une branche possédant un microphone unique et un processeur relié au microphone unique. Le microphone unique est un microphone omnidirectionnel logé dans la branche de telle sorte que, lorsque lesdites lunettes sont placées sur une tête humaine, la ou les branches se trouvant sur un côté prédéterminé de la tête, le microphone unique peut recevoir des sons sensiblement non bloqués par la tête et provenant de sources sonores situées tant à gauche qu'à droite de la partie frontale de la tête, ainsi que d'une partie arrière de la tête correspondant au côté prédéterminé de la tête.
