Recently it became known about a new patent from the tech giant Apple, which describes headphones with biometric authentication functionality. The USPTO has published information about this patent online. It is worth saying that the patent device can recognize “silent speech” for headset interaction.
As planned by tech giant Apple, this headset will be equipped with a variety of sensors. They will allow the device to recognize the owner’s voice. In addition, such headphones will be able to provide the execution of voice commands, as well as “silent” control. It should be said that the recognition of “silent” speech implies that the device will be able to recognize inaudible words. Such words are formed by the user’s jaw and tongue, while they are uttered absolutely silently. In other words, the sensors of the new headphones will be able to detect changes in a person’s face, as well as recognize various commands.
At the same time, such headphones will receive a special processor that can store the so-called voice patterns. In addition, such AirPods will be able to use various algorithms so that the biometric authentication system can better recognize the user’s voice. Unfortunately, at the moment, nothing else is known about this patent. At the same time, it should be said that the patent does not mean that the tech giant Apple is going to release headphones with such technology in the near future.
Active noise cancellation, water resistance, 30 hours of battery life and Huawei Band 7 as a gift. Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 flagship headphones unveiled
Huawei has unveiled its new Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 fully wireless headphones for the international market. They were developed in collaboration with the French company Devialet, which specializes in the production of audio equipment.
European users will be able to buy Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 in white, silver blue and gray versions. The price will be 199 euros. Those who pre-order receive a smart bracelet Huawei Band 7. Open sales will begin on July 11.
The headphones received an active noise reduction system with an efficiency of up to 47 dB, as well as a long battery life. Four modes are provided – comfortable, general and enhanced, as well as a sound transmission mode, when the user remains in touch with the outside world.
Each of the headphones is equipped with two emitters and three microphones. One emitter will be responsible for low frequencies, and the other for medium and high frequencies. The total frequency range is 14 Hz – 48 kHz.
Unlike its predecessors, the headphones are protected from moisture (IP54) and dust. With the charging case, the battery life is up to 30 hours. One charge will give you 4 hours of noise-cancelling and 6.5 hours without noise-cancelling.
Huawei FreeBuds Pro 2 headphones will be different from most competitors in the market
Huawei is gearing up to release the FreeBuds Pro 2 fully wireless earphones. It is expected to be introduced this month for around 200 euros.
At the same time, the new model will be very different both from the current one, which also came out with a price of 200 euros, and from many other similar headphones on the market. The fact is that the headphones will be two-driver. One emitter will be responsible for low frequencies, and the other for medium and high frequencies. In theory, this should provide a significantly better sound quality, but here it is better to wait for the announcement and tests.
The source speaks of a frequency range from 14 Hz to 48 kHz, as well as a collaboration with Devialet. It also talks about Hi-Res Audio Wireless certification.
FreeBuds Pro 2 will also receive active noise cancellation, three microphones for each earpiece and AI algorithms. Autonomy will be 6.5 hours with active noise cancellation and up to 8 hours without it. In addition, the source speaks of protection against moisture (IP54).
