SharpBrains’ Take:

The ‘075 patent cou­ples an audio head­phone set sys­tem with EEG sig­nal detec­tion by inte­grat­ing an EEG sen­sor (item 15 in the illus­tra­tive image) into the audio ear­piece to estab­lish a sens­ing head­set that is unlike­ly to cause dis­com­fort or oth­er­wise detract from the audio head­phone user’s expe­ri­ence.
