If you haven’t heard of bone conduction technology, just grab a pair of Audio Bone AB10BL 1.0 Headphones and you’ll quickly find out just how cool it is. These are a unique pair of sports headphones that produce sound in a very unique way.
Lightweight. These headphones come in at just 1.3 ounces making them some of the lightest headphones we’ve seen.
Bone Conduction. No worries about the earbuds falling out, as you never even put them in.
Waterproof. Take a swim with these headphones.
Price. They’re a lot more pricey than traditional headphones.
Sound Quality. Unfortunately the sound quality is actually fairly poor. Not only was sound quality low, but bass response was very insignificant.
We absolutely love the idea of the Audio Bone AB10BL 1.0 Headphones, but the function of them still needs a bit of work.
These headphones are one of the few that utilize bone conduction to produce sound. What is bone conduction? Well unlike normal headphones that use an acoustic response, meaning they stimulate the inner ear by air conduction, these headphones don’t even go in your ears. They use a neckband support system and wrap just over the ear. As the sound resonates through the headphones your bones surrounding your ears conduct the sound based on vibrations. Don’t worry, you don’t actually feel the vibrations because they are so subtle. But your bones feel them and communicate with your inner ear and brain to produce high quality sound.
The potential of bone conduction technology is very high, but for such a high price these particular pair need a little bit of work in the sound department. At the same time if you’re an avid runner who needs to always be aware of their surroundings then these may be a good fit for you, especially if you have some money burning a hole in your pocket.
