A US patent filing that was published today point towards research done by Apple that concerns a wireless headset with its own media playback support. This would mean the wireless headset functions as a companion for an iPhone or similar device, but is also full well capable of playing music from storage built right into the earphones themselves. Features include basic music controls and a display, where the inclusion of a microphone lets you use voice commands to play specific content of your choice without having to take it off and getting a closer look. What do you think this is going to be called – the iHear/iEar?
