There is actually a plethora of audio devices for enjoying music out there in the market that most of us haven’t heard of.
Some are more popular than others, while some are less visible. We have seen thousands of headphone companies such as Sennheiser, Bose and Audio-Technica that uses the conventional ear and headphone technology.
However, like the BoneTalker, these headphones are equally good, if not better than the traditional headphones.
A Chinese company manufactured this Bluetooth bicycle helmet that plays music and even make phone calls. This helmet has a built-in Bluetooth headsets speakers and microphones. This is popular with bicycle enthusiasts. Kinda looks like Robocop, doesn’t it?
Bone Conduction Headphones
Bone Conduction Headphones, like BoneTalker, is a niche market that is starting to gain traction. Although the technology isn’t new, the market is growing. Bone conduction headphones use vibrations to transmit audio to the user’s cheekbones.
This technology does not isolate the listeners from its surrounding. You can be listening to podcasts or walking about the house doing chores and somebody knocks on the doorbell, you’d still be able to hear it and respond.
Perhaps this is the more widely known wearable headgear in the market. Like the bone conduction headphone, the surround sound for neck speakers is not isolated.
The downside is, it is essentially a speaker. Everyone around you would be able to listen to what you’re listening. You can only use it at the comfort of your own home, or in the car.
So many audio devices…
Despite the hundreds, or possibly thousand audio devices out there, music is all around us. Even car honkings or your neighbor making a ruckus across the street is “music”. Our BoneTalker, takes in all these music but you filter which one you want to listen to.
