ABSTRACT
A wearable wireless audio device includes a support, an elec
tronics circuit, and a speaker. The support includes a ?rst ear
stem and an orbital, and is con?gured to support at least one
lens in a wearer’s ?eld of view. The electronics circuit is
supported by the support and is con?gured to receive at least
one digital audio ?le and generate an audio signal indicative
of the at least one digital audio ?le. The speaker is supported
by the support, and is directed toward at least one of the
wearer’s ears. The speaker is con?gured to convert the audio
signal into sound. The speaker has a speaker face, and the
speaker is con?gured to rotate from a ?rst position in which
the speaker face is substantially parallel to a yZ-plane to a
second position in which the speaker is inclined at an angle
with respect to the yZ-plane. The speaker is coupled to the
support with a speaker pivot, and is con?gured to rotate about
the speaker pivot while maintaining the speaker face substan
