8 Facts About Wireless Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones
Apr 06,2023 | David
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are becoming more and more popular among sports enthusiasts. Driven by them, more and more people are interested in this new type of headphones. To help you better understand them, here are some facts about this type of headphones.
1. Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are new headphones developed using bone conduction technology, which transmits sound through bones;
2. They do not cover the ears, nor do they need to be inserted into the ears;
3. They will not damage the ears, they are the healthiest headphones for the ears. Because their sound transmission does not require the use of the eardrum, damage to the eardrum and auditory hair cells is minimal.
4. Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are not noise-canceling headphones. They don’t sound as perfect as traditional noise-canceling headphones. But if you’re using them for normal music listening, their sound quality is perfectly fine.
5. Bone conduction is a mature technology, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphone is a new application of this mature technology, and you can use it with confidence;
6. Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are not headphones with external speakers. It relies on the vibration unit to generate mechanical vibrations, and the sound is transmitted to the inner ear to make people hear the sound.
7. Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones generally have better waterproof performance. Their sound generation and sound transmission methods make them not need to reserve holes in the fuselage, and the entire headphone can be integrated.
8. They will have a slight sound leakage problem. But some better products handle sound leakage better.
How do wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones work?
When we speak, we ourselves actually hear the sound through the air (air conduction) and through the bones (bone conduction) at the same time. We may have become so used to it that we think that hearing our own voice is just transmit through the air. As an example,when you close your mouth while brushing your teeth, this ensures that there is no air-conducted sound, but you can still hear the brushing sound, and it is clearly heard, it is the sound through the bone.
Bone conduction technology is actually the technology of transmitting sound through bones. During the transmission process, the sound source causes the bone to resonate, thereby transmitting the vibration to the cochlea, which is the principle of bone conduction technology.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are headphones manufactured based on bone conduction technology. When they work, people only need to stick the sound unit on the temple, and the sound unit will convert the sound signal into mechanical vibration, drive the skull to vibrate, and the skull will transmit the vibration to the cochlea. After the cochlea perceives the sound, it will be transmitted to the auditory nerve and brain. Finally, the sound is formed. This is how wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones work.
Therefore, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones can hear the sound without being plugged into the ear. They can well protect the eardrum and maintain the hygiene of the ear canal, which is very helpful for ear health.
It can be said that bone conduction headphones are good for using, and the following i will recommends several good headphones to everyone.
1, Wissonly Hi Runner wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
This is the fastest growing brand in the past six months. It may not be much famous, but in the field of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones they are proper technical experts. Their team began to develop wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones that do not hurt the ear as early as 10 years ago. With an excellent bone conduction vibration unit optimization program, It became famous very soon in the field of bone conduction. It has been recommended by the majority of otologists!
Due to the particularity of the technical principle, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are more difficult to be improved in sound quality. Wissonly Hi Runner team subverted the traditional sound quality scheme, made a breakthrough to use large wire-frame vibration unit. They through structural optimization improved the effective vibration area, thereby improved the vibrator sound efficiency, made the sound more shocking and powerful, they optimized the sound transmission direction, reduced the sound loss during sound transmission, and made the sound quality more concentrated. In terms of comfort, the overall body of the Hi Runner is made of high-tech hypoallergenic silicone material, which does not contain chemical components to avoid allergies. The overall feel is as silky as baby’s skin, avoiding uncomfortable wearing for a long time.
In terms of functions, as the flagship model of Wissonly wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones, Hi Runner has an IPX8 waterproof grade which is higher than the industry standard. It is equipped with 32G body memory, and uses the latest Bluetooth 5.0 chip, which makes the connection more stable. The battery life is also very good, lasts 8–10 hours of continuous playback at normal volume, and supports magnetic fast charging. It only takes 2 hours to fully charge.
2. Philips A6606 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Philips A6606 is very pleasant to touch, especially the side is softer and touches the skin. It looks like an advanced product on hand. And the charging joint soft plug of the headphone and the gap between different parts are smooth, and the overall workmanship is quite good.
It supports for dual-microphone stereo calls, and is made very well in terms of call quality. A6606 supports mobile phone APP control, if a call comes in during running or cycling, it can be connected by simply touching the left unit, which will not affect the safety of riding. And bone conduction sound pickup technology + dual noise-canceling microphones can also filter out the wind noise during moving forward, and the call effect is guaranteed.
3.AfterShokz OPENmove wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
The surface of the AfterShokz OPENmove wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones is made of warm and skin-friendly silicone material, and with open ears wearing style, it is very comfortable. With the help of CVC noise reduction algorithm, its voice is relatively clear in calling, and it is basically not affected by the external ambient sound. It also adopts Bluetooth version 5.0, which has high stability of Bluetooth connection and brings lower power consumption. Openmove specializes in “sports use”, and music quality is not its core, which may be slightly worse.
4.Earsopen SS900 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
With the support of AVV’s precise vertical vibration technology, the vibration intensity and frequency of SS900 is improved, which makes up for shortage of sound quality caused by small sound producing area of 10mm small size vibration unit, and makes the low frequency sound more full. The 7.5g body weight is better with the clip-on ear type, which makes it more portable. However, the clip-on ear type makes the ears uncomfortable after wearing for a long time, which is its disadvantage.
5.Nank Runner CC3 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Runner CC2 is an entry-level bone conduction headset, but its overall performance is very good. The headphone body is made of aviation grade material, which has good flexibility and is not easy to be damaged. The weight of the body is only 28g, combined with skin-friendly food-grade silica gel as the surface material, which brings a skin-friendly and comfortable wearing experience. Its waterproof grade reaches IPX6 level, which can meet the basic life-class waterproof.
So, do you have your favorite bone conduction headphone? If you are still confused, I suggest you choose between Wissonly and Aftershokz. The sound quality and sound leak reduction performance of their products are good. The difference is that Wissonly hi Runner has higher cost performance,it’s more worth buying.
