Detailed Description
In order to make the objects, technical solutions and advantages of the embodiments of the present invention clearer, the technical solutions in the embodiments of the present invention will be clearly and completely described below with reference to the drawings in the embodiments of the present invention, and it is obvious that the described embodiments are some, but not all, embodiments of the present invention. All other embodiments, which can be derived by a person skilled in the art from the embodiments given herein without making any creative effort, shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.
Referring to fig. 1, fig. 1 is a flowchart illustrating an environment listening method for a wireless headset according to an embodiment of the present invention. The method can comprise the following steps:
step 101: the method comprises the steps of obtaining the current wearing conditions of a first wireless earphone and a second wireless earphone which is connected with the first wireless earphone in a matched and paired mode.
The current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone can comprise a wearing state and an unworn state.
It can be understood that, the method for monitoring the environment of the wireless headset according to the present embodiment may be implemented when the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are worn by the user, the first wireless earphone or the second wireless earphone utilizes the environment sound signal collected by the microphone of the wireless earphone (the second wireless earphone or the first wireless earphone) which is connected with the first wireless earphone or the second wireless earphone in a paired way, and the method for monitoring the environmental sound is realized by playing the collected environmental sound signal by utilizing the speaker of the wireless earphone and/or the wireless earphone matched and connected with the speaker, that is to say, the method provided by the implementation can be realized when a processor such as a singlechip in the first wireless earphone or the second wireless earphone executes a corresponding computer program, that is, the execution main body of the method provided by this embodiment may be a processor such as a single chip microcomputer in the first wireless headset or the second wireless headset; the method for listening to the ambient sound may also be implemented by using a first wireless headset and/or a second wireless headset paired with a terminal, such as a mobile phone, that is, the method provided by the present embodiment may be implemented when a processor in the terminal paired with the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset executes a corresponding computer program, that is, an execution subject of the method provided by the present embodiment may also be a processor in the terminal paired with the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset. The present embodiment does not set any limit to this.
It can be understood that, in this step, the specific manner in which the processor such as the single chip microcomputer obtains the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone may be set by the designer according to the practical situation and the user requirement, for example, the processor in the first wireless earphone obtains the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone, the processor may obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to the wearing detection sensors respectively arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone, or obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to the signal sent by the terminal or the second wireless earphone which is connected in pair with the first wireless earphone. The present embodiment does not limit this, as long as the processor of the first wireless headset can obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset connected to the first wireless headset.
It should be noted that, for the specific process of acquiring the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone by the processor, the specific process may be set by a designer according to a practical scene and a user requirement, for example, the processor in the first wireless earphone acquires the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone, and the processor of the first wireless earphone may directly acquire the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to currently received data acquired by the sensors arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone; or the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone can be obtained according to the currently received data collected by the sensor arranged on the first wireless earphone and the current wearing condition of the second wireless earphone sent by the second wireless earphone; the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone sent by the second wireless earphone can be directly received and acquired. The present embodiment does not limit this, as long as the processor of the first wireless headset can obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset connected to the first wireless headset.
Correspondingly, the step may further include a step of sending the current wearing condition of the first wireless earphone or the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone to the second wireless earphone, so that the second wireless earphone can conveniently obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone.
Step 102: judging whether the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both wearing states; if yes, step 103.
It can be understood that, because the user wears the wireless earphone at the ears, when wearing first wireless earphone and second wireless earphone simultaneously promptly, the user can lead to being difficult to hear the ambient sound because of wireless earphone's syllable-dividing effect, can cause certain influence to user's safety, is unfavorable for user experience, consequently, the purpose of this step can be for passing through: and judging whether the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both the wearing states, and determining whether the environmental sound needs to be monitored, so that the potential safety hazard is avoided.
Step 103: the ambient sound signal is collected using a microphone in the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset.
Wherein the purpose of this step may be for the processor to collect the ambient sound signal using a microphone in the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset. Specifically, the specific selection of the wireless headset where the microphone for collecting the environmental sound signal is located may be set by a designer according to a practical scene and a user requirement, for example, the selection may be performed according to the working condition of the microphone of the wireless headset by the user at the current time, that is, the step may further include a step of determining whether the microphones of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are both in a working state (such as a call state and a voice collection state) before the step; the working conditions of the microphones of the wireless earphones can be selected according to the current time and the later time, the first wireless earphone is taken as a main earphone, the second wireless earphone is taken as an auxiliary earphone, and although the main earphone and the auxiliary earphone are both provided with the microphones, when the two wireless earphones are worn and used together, the microphone in the main earphone (the first wireless earphone) is often only used for picking up the voice signal for conversation or voice recognition, so that the microphone in the auxiliary earphone (the second wireless earphone) can be directly used for picking up the environmental sound signal in the step. The present embodiment is not limited in any way as long as the ambient sound signal can be collected by the microphone in the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset.
Correspondingly, if the step includes a step of determining whether the microphones of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are both in a working state before the step, the voice signal collected by the microphone in the working state, such as a call state, needs to be sent to the paired terminals as soon as possible, so as to reduce call delay. Therefore, when the speakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are not in the working state, the step can be entered to collect the environmental sound signal by using the microphone which is not in the working state. For the condition that whether the loudspeakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both in the working state, the working state of any wireless earphone can be waited for to be completed, and the microphone which is not in the working state is used for collecting the environmental sound signal when the step is entered; the ambient sound signal collected by the microphone in the operating state in which the processing speed requirement is low may also be directly utilized, which is not limited in this embodiment.
It is understood that the present embodiment is presented by taking as an example the case where the user starts listening to the ambient sound when wearing the wireless headset in both ears. In the actual use process, under the condition that the wireless earphones are worn by two ears of a user, the monitoring of the ambient sound can be correspondingly started according to the requirements of the user, for example, the user can start the monitoring of the ambient sound by operating keys on the earphones or a matched terminal such as a mobile phone, namely, the step can also comprise the step of judging whether an ambient monitoring starting signal is received or not before the step, and if yes, the step is started; because the wireless earphones worn by the two ears of the user are more difficult for the user to hear the ambient sound when the loudspeakers are in the working state (the conversation state and the music playing state), whether the monitoring of the ambient sound needs to be started or not can be automatically determined by determining whether the loudspeakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone worn by the two ears of the user are in the working state or not, namely, whether the loudspeakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are in the working state or not can be judged before the step, and if yes, the step is started. As long as can be after confirming whether the current wearing condition of first wireless earphone and second wireless earphone is wearing state, start the monitoring to surrounding environment sound, to specific start-up process, can be set by the designer according to practical scene and demand by oneself, if can adopt above-mentioned process, this embodiment does not do any restriction to this.
Step 104: the ambient sound signal is sent to a speaker of the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset to play the ambient sound signal.
The purpose of this step may be that the processor sends the ambient sound signal collected by the microphone of the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone to the speaker of the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone to play the ambient sound signal. Specifically, the specific sending position of the environmental sound signal, that is, the specific selection of the wireless earphone for receiving and playing the environmental sound signal, can be set by the designer according to the practical scene and the user's requirement, for example, if the first wireless earphone is the master earphone and the second wireless earphone is the slave earphone, if only the microphone of the second wireless earphone is used to collect the environmental sound signal, the processor of the second wireless earphone can send the collected environmental sound signal to itself or the speaker of the first wireless earphone, that is, the user only needs to listen to the environmental sound with one ear; the processor of the second wireless headset may send the collected ambient sound signal to itself and to the speakers of the first wireless headset, i.e., the user may need to listen to the ambient sound binaural. The present embodiment does not set any limit to this.
It can be understood that, in this step, specific contents of the environmental sound signals played by the speakers of the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone may be set by a designer according to a practical scenario and a user requirement, for example, the played environmental sound signals may be original environmental sound signals directly collected by the microphones of the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone, or may be environmental sound signals subjected to noise reduction processing such as filtering on the original environmental sound signals. As long as the ambient sound signal is played, the ambient sound is monitored, which is not limited in this embodiment.
It should be noted that, in this step, the specific way of playing the ambient sound signal by the speaker of the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone may be set by the designer according to the practical scene and the user requirement, for example, the ambient sound signal is directly played at the current volume, or the ambient sound signal may be played at a preset volume corresponding to the current volume, for example, the ambient sound signal may be played at a volume lower than the current volume. The embodiment is not limited in any way as long as the speaker of the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset can play the ambient sound signal.
In the embodiment, the microphone in the first wireless earphone and/or the second wireless earphone is used for collecting the environmental sound signals, so that the environmental sound around the user can be collected when the user wears the two wireless earphones; through sending the environment sound signal to first wireless earphone and/or the speaker of second wireless earphone to broadcast environment sound signal, make the user can clearly hear the environment sound of gathering, realized the monitoring to environment sound, improved user experience, avoided the user to wear wireless earphone because of the ears, be difficult to hear the potential safety hazard that the environment sound around produced.
Referring to fig. 2, fig. 2 is a flowchart illustrating another method for monitoring an environment of a wireless headset according to an embodiment of the present invention. The method can comprise the following steps:
step 201, acquiring the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to wearing detection sensors respectively arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone.
The specific device types of the wearing detection sensors respectively arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone in the step can be selected by designers according to practical scenes and user requirements, if the wearing detection sensors can be independent distance sensors, namely, the step can utilize the distance sensors such as infrared sensors respectively arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone to detect and obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone through the distance data at the current moment; the wear detection sensor may also be a separate other sensor such as a capacitance sensor or an acceleration sensor; the wearing detection sensor may also be a combination of a plurality of sensors, as shown in fig. 3, the wearing sensor (sensor) may be a combination of an infrared sensor (P sensor) and an acceleration sensor (G sensor), such as the P sensor emitting infrared rays, the infrared rays being reflected back to the P sensor in the ear canal, and whether the wireless headset is worn on the ear of a person is determined according to the time of reflection reception and the displacement change of the G sensor in the vertical direction. As long as the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset can be obtained according to the wearing detection sensors respectively disposed on the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset, the present embodiment does not limit this.
It should be noted that, for the specific manner of obtaining the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to the wearing detection sensors respectively arranged on the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone in this step, the specific manner can be set by the designer according to practical situations and needs, for example, the first wireless earphone or the second wireless earphone can obtain the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone according to the wearing detection feedback signal of the wearing sensor arranged by the first wireless earphone or the second wireless earphone and the wearing detection feedback signal of the wireless earphone (the second wireless earphone or the first wireless earphone) connected in pair received, as shown in fig. 4, the chip in the first wireless earphone as the master earphone obtains the wearing detection feedback signal of the wearing sensor (sensor1) arranged by the chip in the first wireless earphone and the wearing detection feedback signal of the wearing sensor (sensor2) in the second wireless earphone as the slave earphone, and acquiring the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone. The present embodiment does not set any limit to this.
Step 202: judging whether the current wearing conditions of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both wearing states; if yes, step 203.
The purpose of this step may be to determine whether the wireless headset is worn by both ears of the user by determining whether the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are both wearing states. Specifically, for a specific judgment mode, the judgment mode may be set by a designer, as shown in fig. 4, a chip (sensor1) in the first wireless headset may judge whether the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are both a wearing state according to wearing detection feedback signals of sensor1 and sensor2, and determine whether the wireless headset is worn by both ears of the user.
Specifically, for the case that the current wearing conditions of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are not both in the wearing state, the monitoring of the ambient sound may not be started, as shown in fig. 5, and the voice call is performed by using the method in the prior art.
Step 203: judging whether the loudspeakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both in a working state; if yes, step 204.
The purpose of this step may be to determine whether to automatically start monitoring the sound of the surrounding environment by determining whether the speakers of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset are both in a working state. Specifically, the specific determination process in this step may be set by a designer, as shown in fig. 4, after receiving an instruction corresponding to wearing of two ears sent by the sensor1, the host chip of the main earphone (the first wireless earphone) determines whether the speakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both in a working state by determining whether to start the call state.
It should be noted that the working state in this step may be a state in which the speakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone can play sound. Specifically, the specific setting of the working state may be set by a designer, for example, the setting may include a call state, a music playing state, and the like. The present embodiment does not set any limit to this.
Step 204: an ambient sound signal is collected with a microphone in the second wireless headset.
It will be appreciated that the purpose of this step may be to enable listening for ambient sounds using a microphone in a second wireless headset, which is a slave headset. Specifically, as shown in fig. 4, the chip (master chip) of the first wireless headset sends a corresponding command to the chip (slave chip) of the second wireless headset, so as to start the microphone in the second wireless headset to pick up sound (ambient sound signal).
Correspondingly, for the specific use of the microphone of the first wireless headset, the same or similar manner as the microphone of the existing main headset can be adopted, as shown in fig. 4, the first wireless headset realizes the call function by using its own microphone (Mic), and sends a voice signal to the speaker of the remote handset of the other party of the call.
Step 205: the ambient sound signal is sent to the speakers of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset to play the ambient sound signal.
It should be noted that, the purpose of this step may be to send the ambient sound signal collected by the microphone in the second wireless headset to the speakers of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset to play the ambient sound signal, so that the user can clearly hear the ambient sound, thereby playing a monitoring role.
Specifically, the specific manner of sending the environment sound signal to the speakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone in this step can be set by the designer, for example, the second wireless earphone can directly send the environment sound signal collected by the microphone set by the second wireless earphone to the speaker set by the second wireless earphone through the circuit in a circulating manner, and the first wireless earphone can receive the environment sound signal sent by the second wireless earphone and then send the environment sound signal to the speaker set by the second wireless earphone through the circuit in a circulating manner. The present embodiment is not limited to this as long as the speakers of the first wireless headset and the second wireless headset can receive the ambient sound signal.
It can be understood that, at present, a wireless headset such as a TWS headset can implement stereo voice call, and although both the master headset and the slave headset are provided with microphones, only the microphone of the master headset is used to pick up a voice signal for transmission during actual use when the headset is worn by two ears. The primary intention of the master earphone and the slave earphone both having the microphone is that the master earphone or the slave earphone can be independently used as a single-sound-channel Bluetooth earphone to be connected with the terminal for single-sound-channel conversation. When the stereo voice call is carried out, only the microphone of the main earphone is used for picking up the voice signal for the call, and the microphone of the auxiliary earphone does not have any action, so that the resource of the microphone of the auxiliary earphone is completely wasted. Therefore, in the present embodiment, by using the microphone of the slave earphone (second wireless earphone), not only the monitoring and side-tone masking effects on the sound of the surrounding environment are achieved, but also the waste of resources is avoided.
In the embodiment, the time for automatically monitoring the sound of the surrounding environment is further determined by judging whether the loudspeakers of the first wireless earphone and the second wireless earphone are both in the working state, so that the user experience is improved; by collecting the environmental sound signals by using the microphone in the second wireless earphone, not only is the monitoring and side-tone masking effect on the surrounding environmental sounds realized, but also the waste of resources is avoided.
Referring to fig. 6, fig. 6 is a structural diagram of an environment monitoring apparatus of a wireless headset according to an embodiment of the present invention. The apparatus may include:
an obtaining module 100, configured to obtain current wearing conditions of a first wireless headset and a second wireless headset connected in a pairing manner with the first wireless headset;

the playing module 400 is configured to send the ambient sound signal to a speaker of the first wireless headset and/or the second wireless headset to play the ambient sound signal.
Optionally, when the first wireless headset is a master headset and the second wireless headset is a slave headset, the acquisition module 300 may include:
and the acquisition submodule is used for acquiring the environment sound signal by utilizing the microphone in the second wireless earphone.
Optionally, the obtaining module 100 includes:
