Bone conduction headphones that deliver unrivaled situational awareness & comfort. Our premium audio provides the ultimate open ear listening experience.
Yea, that's me.
I want to promote this device because I tried them, two different models, and they actually worked. And, more importantly, IMHO, are very comfortable, as in all day comfort.
First, what is it? headphones you can hear audio from a blue tooth source and conversate on phone call.
They are placed just forward of your ear canal and sound like speakers would sound just outside of your ears. I could place the pods over my ears and hear, but they sound just as good placed against my skin, as shown.
The benefits of this are many.
- I can wear hats
- I can use ear plugs
- I can hear external sounds
- They don't fall off/out
- I look like Star Trek
- No wires
- Water resistant (water proof swimming models are available)
- Always in place
Just about every niggle and complaint I had with headphones, ear buds, boom microphones, etc, are eliminated with this design.
The model I am wearing is the Aeropex Mini. It is the only model that comes in a smaller size. I tried a different model, the Open Move, which is much cheaper, a good performer, and comes in more colors. I got a pair for me and wifey, I got her pink. It was a good way to try the tech without buying the latest model.
Well, as fate would have it, I lost mine on a bus when fussing with my mask loops getting caught in my glasses and comms and I left them on the seat. That or going through security at an airport. Regardless, I now had all the excuse I needed to upgrade to the Aeropex and try the smaller size. As luck would have it, they were on a sale, I got them for $129, about $30 off.
So why do I need this spendy bit of tech? In my world, I can be on the moove, quickly transitioning from multiple locations, vehicles and working on my feet outdoors and using various radios, phones, etc. In the rain, heat, whatever. Having things in my eardrums just for the phone didn't work very well if I needed to hear my surroundings or if I needed to use hearing protection. I haven't tried these comms next to ear muffs, but they will work with ear plugs. I don't think I will risk exposing them to the sound levels of indoor gunfire.
As for wearing them with glasses, the ear loops have enough of a space for most wire frame temples to fit. Probably not for think 60's frames. But if you're still wearing those, I don't know if you'd be interested in any of this new stuff. I am looking for a good Accutron Spaceview to cherish, LMK please.
