Bone conducting headphones are headphones that connect to the temporal bone allowing to listen to music, phone conversation etc. while still being able to listen to the outside world. Still, there are the pros and the cons of the idea. Though it is a rather old invention made in the mid 20th century not many know about the benefits of this piece of technology.

 

Cons:

  • One must press the headphones against their face very thoroughly to be able to listen to the vibrations or else it will be a collision of unknown vibrations
  • The volume would have to be very high to be able to listen to the vibrations or else one would hear little to no sound.
  • Others can hear what you are listening to

 

Pros:

  • Since the ear canals would be free, one could listen to the outside world as well as their personal wants on a device.
  • This not only allows free ears but a sense of feeling for the rest of the world.
  • Allows a compromise of concentration and music when bicycling or other such activities

 

Bone conducting headphones have many pros and cons, though the benefits are very helpful to people, especially in this day and age. So when a new pair of headphones is needed, think about bone conducting headphones, not just the classics.
