A possible solution to the "held up to the ear' problem would be to define
Here is a definition that I ran past Brenda Battat and some others that
After tuning it up with suggestions here is what I have.
held up to the ear
product is positioned immediately adjacent to ear either by hand or by a
strap or holder of some kind in typical use. Headphone and headsets that
connect to a product via a standard connector are not considered as products
that are 'held up to the ear' but rather alternate speakers to a device.
Handsets are considered products or part of a product
NOTE: Headphones and headsets with standard connectors are excepted from
the definition since users can substitute other headphones or headsets or
neck loops that meet their individual needs and use them with the product.
