DESCRIPTION JP3187038
Abstract: To provide a battery-powered sound device capable of preventing vibration and
movement of a speaker during use which causes performance degradation. A sound device
includes at least one speaker, a speaker body 1 having at least one speaker, and a sleeve 2
formed of a vibration absorbing material, the sleeve having a housing shape for housing the
speaker body. A first part 2-2 and a second part 2-1 in the shape of an elastic suction cup
forming a mounting member, the first part and the second part are integrally formed of an elastic
plastic material such as silicon. [Selected figure] Figure 3

[0001]
The present invention relates to sound devices, and more particularly to battery powered sound
devices with mounting members. In a particular embodiment, the mounting member is formed of
a vibration absorbing material.
[0002]
Many commercially available battery powered speakers are relatively small in size and
lightweight. In order to meet the needs of the market, the power supplies of these battery
powered speakers are becoming larger and in some cases even heavier than the weight of the

speaker body.
[0003]
This causes the vibration and movement of the speaker during use, which degrades the
performance of the speaker.
[0004]
In order to reduce the above-mentioned problems, the present invention comprises: a speaker
body having at least one speaker; a sleeve formed of a vibration absorbing material; Provided is a
sound device having a portion and a second portion shaped to form a mounting member,
wherein the first and second portions of the sleeve are integrally formed.
[0005]
In one aspect, an advantage of the present invention is that the purpose of securing the speaker
body can be achieved by attaching the suction cup, which is the elasticity of the sleeve, to any
surface based on the operating principle of atmospheric pressure.
This avoids the vibration or movement of the speaker body caused by the large power supply,
thus increasing the practicality of the sound device.
[0006]
In another aspect, the sleeve formed by the vibration absorbing material reduces noise and
vibration much more.
[0007]
Such an object is achieved by the sound device according to the invention comprising the
features set out in the appended claims, which are the main part of the present description.
Other objects, features and advantages of the present invention will become apparent from the
following detailed description given by way of non-limiting example and the accompanying

drawings.
FIG. 1 shows the structure of a speaker body according to the present invention. FIG. 2 shows the
structure of a sleeve according to the present invention. FIG. 3 shows a fully assembled sound
device according to the invention.
[0008]
As shown in the drawings, the present embodiment relates to a battery-powered sound device
having a mounting member, having a speaker body (1) and a sleeve (2). Battery powered sound
devices include an internal battery pack or other power supply, and preferably the sound device
can operate properly without a connection to an external power source. The built-in battery pack
or other power source may be replaceable or rechargeable. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 1,
the socket used to charge the built-in battery is accessible via a control panel located outside the
loudspeaker body (1), in particular on the periphery of the loudspeaker body (1). The
loudspeaker body (1) comprises an upper housing and a lower housing, in particular made of a
plastic material. The speaker body (1) is also provided with a hole at the top of the upper
housing. Although the speaker body (1) is spherical in the present embodiment, the appearance
of the speaker body (1) may have any shape according to the actual necessity. The speaker (1-1)
is disposed near the top of the speaker body (1).
[0009]
As shown in FIG. 2, the sleeve (2) includes a first portion (2-2) shaped to accommodate the
speaker body (1) and a second portion (2-1) shaped to form the mounting member. The first part
(2-2) and the second part (2-1) of the sleeve (2) are integrally formed. In particular, the sleeve (2)
has an elastic suction cup (2-1) at one end, and the elastic suction cup (2-1) is connected to the
speaker body housing (2-2) at the other end of the sleeve (2). In the present embodiment, the
elastic suction cup (2-1) is located on the bottom of the sleeve (2) in order to make the mounting
easier. The speaker body housing (2-2) of the sleeve (2) is a flexible plastic case. Elastic plastic
materials such as silicon have the property of reducing noise and vibration much more.

The inner diameter of the speaker body housing (2-2) of the sleeve (2) substantially corresponds
to the outer diameter of the housing of the speaker body (1). On the outside, in particular the
outer periphery, of the speaker body housing (2-2) of the sleeve (2) is at least one matching
projection corresponding to the position of at least one control button of the speaker body (1).
According to this embodiment, the at least one control button mounted on the speaker body
housing (2-2) includes a volume control button and / or a button for power control. Preferably,
the sound device according to the invention is provided with a user interface having a control
panel comprising at least one control button. In particular, the control panel includes buttons for
volume control and / or switches for power control and / or sockets for charging the power
supply. Such user interfaces typically also include other components such as light emitting
diodes (LEDs) or microphones.
[0011]
In the embodiment shown in the drawings, the sound device does not have a wired interface. In
practice, the loudspeaker body may comprise a signal transceiver (not shown) which wirelessly
receives the audio signal and transfers it to the sound loudspeaker (1-1). Such signal transceivers
may operate using well known standards such as WiFi, Bluetooth®. However, it is clear that the
sound device according to the invention may also comprise a wired connection (not shown) for
receiving the audio signal and transferring it to the loudspeaker (1-1).
[0012]
As shown in FIG. 3, the speaker body housing (2-2) of the sleeve (2) is tightly packed around the
speaker body (1) so that the sleeve and the speaker body (1) are connected to each other to form
an integral structure. cover. In order to ensure sound propagation quality, the loudspeaker (1-1)
is positioned near the top of the loudspeaker body (1) so as not to be covered by the loudspeaker
body housing (2-2) of the sleeve (2). Such an arrangement also leaves the holes formed in the
speaker body (1) exposed to the atmosphere for sound propagation.
[0013]
Therefore, it is sufficient to fix the speaker body (1) simply by attaching the elastic suction cup
(2-1) to any surface in order to enjoy using the speaker that does not move nor move due to
vibration. 1) is easy to use.

Many modifications can be made to the sound device (1) described by way of example herein
without departing from the novel idea of the inventive concept.
It is also apparent that in the practical implementation of the present invention, the details shown
may have different shapes or be replaced by other technically equivalent elements. Accordingly,
the present invention is not limited to the above-described sound device, but uses many
modifications, improvements or equivalent parts or members without departing from the concept
of the present invention as clearly specified in the following claims. It will be readily understood
that it is possible to make a substitution.
