WHAT IS BONE CONDUCTION TECHNOLOGY?
Normal sound waves are actually tiny vibrations in the air. The vibrations travel through the air to our eardrums. The eardrums, in turn, vibrate, decoding these sound waves into different types of vibrations that are received by the Cochlea, also known as the inner ear. The Cochlea is connected to our auditory nerve, which transmits the sounds to our brain.
Bone Conduction bypasses the eardrums. In bone conduction listening, the bone conduction devices (such as headphones) perform the role of your eardrums. These devices decode sound waves and convert them into vibrations that can be received directly by the Cochlea, so the eardrum is never involved. The “sound” reach the ears as vibrations through the bones (or skull) and skin.
5 BENEFITS OF BONE CONDUCTION HEADPHONES
KEEPING YOUR SITUATIONAL AWARENESS
Immersing yourself in a new playlist or compelling audiobook is a great escape when walking, running, or cycling, but it's a pleasure that can increase the risk of an accident.
Closing yourself off to the outside world also means you are less likely to hear trains, car horns, bicycle bells, and any other warning shouts that you may need to hear. The Audiology Foundation of America has also stated that bone conduction causes minor damage to the eardrums.
With bone conduction headphones, you can hear another jogger or cyclist approaching behind you and can remain in touch with your office environment and hear your colleagues even while listening to your tunes. You're still connected to your external surroundings even while experiencing your private sound.
MORE COMFORTABLE FIT
Do your current earbud headphones fall out? Do they hurt your ear canals? Are full-size headphones too heavy?
Few things are more annoying than running on a treadmill with your right earbud dangling by the wire because when you start working up a sweat, the stupid something won't stay in. One significant advantage to our headphones is that they don't fall out.
CLEAN AND HYGIENIC
A recent study of earphones found that earbuds can harbor 119,186 colony-forming bacteria units, which can increase even more if you are sweating! Bacteria love a warm and wet environment; maybe take a look at how dirty your headphones are! You will be shocked! Open-ear headphones make for an altogether cleaner headphone option.
REMAIN CONNECTED WITH THE OUTSIDE WORLD
If you find that music helps fuel your workout, but you still want to chat with your partner, Veintidós headphones are for you.
The open-ear design of bone conduction headphones means that you can hear everything your friend has to say even while listening to your favorite power tune.
A UNIQUE LISTENING EXPERIENCE
