Headphones That Let You Hear It In Your BonesIn the bigger scheme of things, earbuds are a relatively new phenomenon. So, have you ever wondered how much damage you might be doing to yourself with those earbuds stuck in your ears all the time? Thirty years from now, are we all going to be deaf? Will we find out that those nasty little earbuds were the culprits? Enter VoxLinc, with its AfterShockz Bone Conduction Headphones. Instead of earcups, these headphones have a pad that sits just below your temple. From there, your cheekbones pick up the sound and transmit it to your inner ears.
There's another huge benefit, the company says. Unlike earbuds that block out other important audio cues from your surroundings, this gadget gives your ears an unobstructed path to the sounds around you (like that car that's about to run you over because the driver is texting). This, according to VoxLinc, is why the military relies on the technology for soldiers in combat situations. The soldiers can hear radio communications while also hearing what's going on around them on the battlefield. So, take the "ear" out of "hear."
