Aftershokz have just developed a way for you to literally feel the beat. Using bone conduction technology originally formulated for the military, they are able to enable an ear-saving headphone.

Essentially what Aftershokz has done is to allow you to feel the beat by outputting music that is then fed through your cheek bones instead of your inner ears. Utilizing this technology allows for users to not only feel more freedom and remain more comfortable, but also allows users to remain fully aware of their surroundings. Another added bonus of the music being omitted via your cheekbones is that it allows us to save your precious eardrums, which are so often subjected to copious amounts of decibels that can lead to hearing damage later in life.
