Damson Headbones: Bone Conduction Headphones to Rock Your Brain Box

by


I seem to remember there being some bone conduction headphones on the market a few years back, but these are the first that I’ve come across in a while. These headphones look like an interesting middle ground between headphones and earphones.

The Damson Headbones rely on bone conduction to deliver sound. The headphones rest on the temporal bone on the side of your head and won’t go into your ears. You ear canals will be left open to hear any background noise. This seems a bit counterintuitive, because when I switch on my headphones, I don’t want to hear the outside world.

The headphones wirelessly connect to your smartphone using Bluetooth. The 32 mAh battery will give you 10 hours of playback, and it comes with an integrated microphone if you want to use your phone hands-free. These headphones also come with a 3.5mm jack, which lets you plug in regular earphones if you ever feel the need. Headbones were recently launched as a Kickstarter project. You’ll need to pledge at least $120(USD) to get yours.
