Bone Conduction & Open-Ear Headphone
Bone conduction headphones are a type of headphones that work by transmitting sound vibrations through the bones in your skull, directly to your inner ear, bypassing your outer ear and eardrum.
Instead of using traditional speakers or earbuds that create sound waves that travel through the air and into your ears, bone conduction headphones use small transducers that sit on the cheekbones in front of your ears. These transducers vibrate to create sound waves that are transmitted through the bones in your skull, which are then interpreted as sound by your inner ear.
Bone conduction headphones are often used by people who want to listen to music or make phone calls while still being able to hear their surroundings, such as runners or cyclists. They are also useful for people with hearing loss or conditions that make it difficult to wear traditional headphones or earbuds.
