Vote: Are Conduction Headphones the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 05.07.2017 blog

 

Nothing says “the future is here” like these open ear headphones! Unlike regular headphones that you place on your ears, processing the sound through your eardrums, this new gadget uses “bone conduction technology.” You place the headphones on the cheekbones in front of your ears, and the audio waves are transferred to the inner ears through the skull. What?!

The technology uses Bluetooth so it’s completely wireless and allows you to connect the headphones to your phone to make and receive calls. And with nothing blocking your ear canals, you are more alert and aware of the sounds and the real world around you.

We want to know — would you try these bone conduction headphones? Vote and tell us what you think — you can even submit video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I think its the next big thing because you are more aware of your sorondings and can hear what’s going on so you can de more safe and benifit from these.
