Batband Headphones

batbandMany headphones you see today typically use the same general design. Sometimes only the aesthetics and their audio features differ. But there are now other types of headphones that function quite differently from standard over-ear or in- ear headphones. They are known as bone conduction headphones. And this new Batband Headphones is one example that takes this new type of headphones into a different level.

The Batband Headphones is a unique type of bone conduction headphones. It transmits sound through the bones of the skull into your “private” inner ear. It frees up your outer ear. This allows you to “hear” both the sounds coming from a music device as well as from your surroundings. Your ears remain free to make you aware of sounds from your immediate surrounding while the Batband also allows you to listen to your private soundscape.

The Batband Headphone is literally a headphone since it allows you to “hear” with your head. Its transducers transmit sound in frequencies that the bones of your skull can conduct. The vibrations your bones conduct is transmitted into your inner ear, allowing you to hear while your outer ear remains free. The technology also allows for a more discreet way of transmitting sound. While you use the Batband headphones to take calls, you can be sure that other people will not overhear any of the sound coming from the Batband Headphone.

The Batband Headphone also features touch sensors for controls. It also comes with a built-in mic for taking calls. The Batband is currently on a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.  A pledge of $149 will get you one. But once it starts shipping after April 2016 and becomes available in the market, you may need to fork up $250 for one.
