With headphones, it’s possible to listen to music just about any place we want but some people are left out of the fun for various reasons. Some don’t like the idea of having the outside world completely shut out because they could miss something important – something that might even save their lives – while others simply don’t like to feel anything jabbed in their ears. Now, there’s a way for everyone to enjoy music without having to worry about those… ummm… worries.
AfterShokz Headphones let you listen to music without having to plug some piece of silicone into your ear because your cheekbones, instead of your eardrums, are relaying the soundwaves.
Known as bone conduction headphones, AfterShokz sit in front of the ear and transmit sound through the cheekbones to the inner ear, allowing you to stay tuned into the outside world while enjoying your music. Since your ears are free, safety isn’t an issue while wearing AfterShokz during sporting or exercise activities, and you can also use them for work, listening to webinars or conference calls without tuning out people like your boss.
As an extra bonus, the ick factor is also removed. Now you can let someone take an audio peek at what you’re listening to without worrying that your headphones were just in this other person’s ears. Eww!
You can start with the conduction of the bones inside your head for $69.95 to $79.95.
