THOMAS LINFO'RTH JONES, OF LONDON, ENGLAND; JAMES SIMPSON JONES, EXECUTOR OF SAID THOMAS LINFORTH JONES, DECEASED, ASSIGNOR TO JOHN MAQDOUGALL,

OF PRESTWICK, SCOTLAND.

HEADBAND FOR HEAD PHONES.

Application filed March 27, 1923. Serial No. 627,963.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS LINFORTH JONES, residing at 10 Ham Yard, Great Windmill Street, Piccadilly Circus, London, England, a subject of the King of Great Britain, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Head Bands for Head Phones, of which the following is a-specification.

The present invention relates to improved means for supporting on the head telephone receivers. I

The means for supporting a pair of telephone receivers on the head according to my invention comprise a resilient curved member of approximately horseshoe or semicircularshape each end of which is adapted to have a telephone receiver attached there to, having a flexible band or bands formed of elastic material, textile fabric, leather, or other suitable material, attached to and located within the said resilient curved member and capable of adapting itself to the contour of the top part of the head of the wearer, i. e., so that in use the said band or bands will yieldingly or lightly embrace the top part of the head of the wearer.

For pressing the receivers to the ears I prefer to use a spring bow in the form of a curved metal wire or band having a receiver attached at each end thereof, advantageously by means of a ball joint.

The said supporting bands are preferably loosely, although they may be fixedly, attached to the spring bow, e. g., the latter may pass freely through an eye provided in a slide to which said supporting bands are attached.

Such an arrangement is exceptionally comfortable in use and automatically adapts itself to the contour of the wearers head,

any necessary adjustments for length of the head phone according to this invention; and

Fig. 2 is an end view of Fig. 1.

In these drawings A denotes the cup-shaped body of the receiver furnished with the usual screw cap B.

A pair of receivers are mounted, one on each end ofa spring bow M, ball and socket connections M being provided.

An angular bracket N having a loop or aperture at each end is attached by fixing screws N to the body A of each receiver. The spring bow M passes through the outer loop or aperture of each said bracket, which loop or aperture advantageously forms an elongated slot in which the bow may move freely to allow the receivers a certain rocking freedom.

Adjustable supporting bands 0 preferably of some elastic material as aforesaid are each attached at one end to a slide P loosely threaded over the spring bow M, the other ends of said bands 0 being attached to the brackets N.

Any other suitable receivers may be employed with my aforesaidv supporting means, and the said flexible or elastic band or bands may be used with the ordinary or any other suitable head support in conjunction with which same is to be used.

What I claim is 1. Means for supporting a pair of telephone receivers on-the head comprising a resilient curved member of approximately a semi-circular shape each end of which is adapted to have a receiver attached thereto,

and a flexible band attached to each of said 1igeceivers and to. said resilient curved mem- 2. Means for supporting a pair of telephone receivers on the head comprising a flexible non-metallic non-conducting supporting band in the form of two diverging members located within a supporting bow, the said supporting band having the divergent ends thereof attached adjacent to the receivers and near the ends of the supporting bow and the convergent part of said supporting band attached to the said bow substantially as described.

3. Means for supporting a pair of telephone receivers on the head comprising a resilient curved member of approximately a semi-circular shape, each end of which is adapted to have a receiver attached thereto, and a flexible band of elastic material at tached to and located within said resilient curved member and capable of adapting itself to the contour of the top part of the head of the wearer substantially as described.
