The application relates to a communication device, e.g. a speakerphone, comprising a microphone signal path, MSP, and a loudspeaker signal path, SSP, the microphone signal path comprising a microphone unit, an MSP-filter, and a transmitter unit operationally connected to each other and configured to transmit a processed signal originating from an input sound picked up by the microphone, the loudspeaker signal path comprising a receiver unit, an SSP-filter, and a loudspeaker unit operationally connected to each other and configured to provide an acoustic sound signal originating from a signal received by the receiver unit. The communication device comprises a control unit for dynamically controlling the filtering characteristics of the MSP and SSP-filters based on one or more control input signals. This has the advantage of providing a simple and flexible scheme for decreasing echo in a communication device, while ensuring an acceptable sound quality in the transmitted signal.

There is provided an earpiece or a headset comprising an audio input for receiving an audio signal to be reproduced, at least one electroacoustic reproduction transducer, an audio unit for effecting audio processing of the received audio signal, at least one converter unit for extracting power from the audio signal received at the audio input, a power storage means for at least partial intermediate storage of the power extracted from the audio signal, and a power control unit for controlling the extraction of the power from the audio signal and for controlling a power supply of the audio unit, in particular by way of the power stored in the power storage means and extracted from the audio signal.

An earphone is provided that has two diaphragms that are stretched on a frame and that are driven by means of an electroacoustic sound transducer that is not provided in the region of the two diaphragms. Instead, the sound transducer is acoustically coupled to the two diaphragms via a sound duct. The sound transducer preferably has a front and a rear volume, wherein the front volume of the sound transducer drives the two (parallel) diaphragms via the sound duct. This allows the provision of no electroacoustic reproduction transducer in the central region of the earpiece of an earphone.

An audio processing unit having a first and second input for receiving output signals of a microphone with a first and a second physically symmetrically structured microphone capsule. The audio processing unit further has a first filter unit and a first delay unit which is coupled to the first input, and a second filter unit and a second delay unit which is coupled to the second input. The audio processing unit further has an adding unit for adding signals from the first and second filter units and a control unit for influencing the filter parameters of the first and second filters and/or the delay times of the first and second delay units depending on an amplitude of an audio signal received via the first and/or second input. A directivity factor of the output signal of the microphone is controlled depending on the amplitude of the output signal of the microphone.

A microphone boom is provided with an extendable microphone assembly, and a headset having such a microphone boom. The headset includes a casing accommodating the signal transmission circuitry and further includes a speaker adapted to serve a sound signal at the proximity of a users ear and the speaker is protruding from the casing at a speaker-end of the casing and a microphone assembly is fixated relative to the casing distally with respect to the speaker-end.
