Earbuds have been around since before Gameboy and here hasn't been much innovation since! They can be quite uncomfortable when used for several hours at a time. Not only do they cause ear aches after prolonged use, but they must be removed every time you want to talk to someone or hear something important. In quiet settings, they and also be heard rather clearly by those around you. Luckily, we've found the solution to the age old earbud problem!
Powered by patent pending military special ops bone conduction technology, these surface sound headphones use bone conduction technology to offer a more comfortable, healthier, and safer listening experience. Unlike conventional headphones and earbuds that use the eardrums to transmit sound, surface sound headphones sit comfortably in front of the ear and utilize bone conduction technology to deliver stereo sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ear. This enables anyone participating in an activity – jogging, biking, skateboarding, hiking, gaming – to stay connected to both what they are listening to and the outside world.
These open ear surface sound headphones don't use traditional speakers, so your ears are never blocked or covered. Your ears are left open so you can hear what's happening in your surroundings! That means you no longer have to remove your head phones to hear others talking to you, place an order for your favorite coffee, or listen to that important PA announcement!
Because surface sound technology uses vibrations against your skin instead of a speaker, there's no need to cover your ear. This means your will still be able to hear the world around you! The effect is quite remarkable as the music coming from your headset will sound as if it's being broadcast by a speaker somewhere in the room. You'll still be able to hear other people talking, the doorbell chiming, or the phone ringing. But, no one else will be able to hear your music!
Surface sound is perfect for use in the car, too! Since it does not cover your ear, obstructing your ability to hear the world around you, you can still safely listen to your music while driving without inconveniencing anyone else in your car. Do you want to be able to have a conversation with your car poolers, but also want to keep an ear on the morning news? With an open ear headphone, you can listen to the conversation, and even participate, while still hearing the radio in the background!
