Bone Conduction Earbuds

This Bone Conduction Device is an Alternative to Uncomfortable Earbuds

— April 15, 2017 — Tech
With most earbud designs, the buds must be placed directly within the earbuds for music or other audio to be heard with clarity, but this bone conduction device introduces an entirely different listening experience.

For the most part, the EarsOpen Bone Conduction Earphones look no different from most conventional earbud designs, except that they are meant to be clipped onto the lower part of the ear, rather than inserted close to the eardrum. As such, the earbuds are more comfortable and still leave the ears open to hearing sounds in the surrounding environment—which is ideal for runners, cyclists or even those who are just working at their desk.

BoCo's unique earbuds deliver sounds through bone conduction and Dynamic Vibrator technology from Goldendance for its wired and wireless versions.
Trend Themes
1. Bone Conduction Technology - Exploring the use of bone conduction technology in audio devices opens up opportunities for more comfortable and safer listening experiences.
2. Open-ear Design - Incorporating an open-ear design into earbud devices allows for greater awareness of the surrounding environment, catering to the needs of active individuals.
3. Dynamic Vibrator Technology - Integrating Dynamic Vibrator technology in earphones enhances the audio experience by delivering sound through bone conduction.
Industry Implications
1. Audio Technology - The audio technology industry can seize the opportunity to develop bone conduction devices that provide a more natural and immersive listening experience.
2. Sports and Fitness - The sports and fitness industry can benefit from the open-ear design of bone conduction earbuds, providing athletes with a safer and more convenient audio solution.
3. Wearable Technology - The wearable technology industry can explore the integration of bone conduction technology in various devices, expanding the possibilities for hands-free audio experiences.
