Application: Speaker module and wearable device (Patent ID: US20230403508A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a speaker module designed to be integrated into a wearable device. The speaker module includes an enclosure and a driving unit that generates sound. The sound output from the front opening, first rear opening, and second rear opening of the enclosure is directional, with vectors defined by these openings contributing to the overall sound direction. The combination of these vectors determines the direction of the sound output.

Furthermore, the patent outlines specific configurations and relationships between the front opening, rear openings, and centroids of these openings to optimize sound directionality. The wearable device incorporating this speaker module may also include additional features such as a frame, display unit, and multiple speaker modules for stereo sound output. The design of the speaker module allows for cancellation of sound transmission between the left and right sides of the device, enhancing the overall audio experience for the user.
