I am a deep user of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones and I love this new product. I wear them both for running and cycling. Obviously, they're already part of my body and give me a lot of motivation when I'm exercising. However, since this year, I have discovered some bad phenomena, that is, there are many fake wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones on the market. They are cheap and of poor quality. This has me stuck when it comes to gifting my girlfriend's birthday. She thought that what I sent was cheap and inferior products, and we almost had a relationship crisis. Therefore, in this article, I want to talk about how to distinguish between real wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones and fake wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones, the principles, advantages and disadvantages of them, and so on.
How to distinguish real wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones from fake ones?
wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones rely on bones to transmit sound. Fake ones are actually air-conduction headphones that rely on air to transmit sound. There is a big difference in the way of sound transmission. Fake wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones (that is, air conduction headphones), emit sound from two external speakers, and the sound transmits sound through the air into the ear. Therefore, under normal social distance, the sound played by fake wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones can be heard by everyone, while with real ones, within the same distance, other people can't hear the sound at all.
You can do a test and put on the headphones. If you wear real wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones, you will find that the sound is louder and clearer after the ears are blocked. And if you wear fake ones , the sound becomes smaller after you block your ears.
Are wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones safer?
Just to get straight to my point, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are safer and healthier than regular headphones, they are the healthiest kind of headphones. There are several reasons.They cause less hearing damage, less damage to cranial nerves and auditory nerves than traditional headphones, and are safer during wearing.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are safer 1: it is less harmful to hearing
First of all, because hearing damage generally occurs in the eardrum and inner ear, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones rely on human bones to transmit sound, and they do not need to pass through the ear canal and tympanic membrane, so damage to the tympanic membrane can be avoided. Compared with conventional headphones, the vibration waves of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are also relatively moderate, which will have less impact on auditory hair cells, so they are the headphones that cause the least damage to the ears.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are safer 2: it does less damage to the auditory nerve
Next, let me talk about the problem of electromagnetic waves. Most electronic products have problems with electromagnetic waves, but the strength of electromagnetic waves varies. The electromagnetic waves of traditional headphones are relatively stronger, and it is easier to cause damage to the human brain and hearing nerves. The electromagnetic waves of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are extremely weak, they have the same intensity as the electromagnetic waves existing in nature, and will not cause damage to the human brain and hearing nerves.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are safer 3: pay attention to environmental sound to protect your safety
The way wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are worn can also help the wearer avoid the dangers of wearing them. They don't need to be plugged into the ear canal when you wear them, and you can still keep an eye on the surrounding environment while listening to music with them. For example, if you wear wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones when crossing the road, you will not be in danger because you cannot hear the sound of the horn; when you are exercising outdoors, you can also hear the sound behind you by wearing them to avoid some dangerous situations.
In addition to safety, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones have many advantages, such as comfortable to wear, clean and hygienic, high waterproof level and so on.
Of course, there are two small disadvantages of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones, that is, the sound quality is not perfect, and there is a slight sound leakage problem. However, with the advancement of technology, these two problems have been greatly improved. The better wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones do a good job in improving sound quality and reduce sound leakage.
More and more people are interested in bone conduction earphones, and more and more earphone manufacturers are joining this market. Then, how to choose the right bone conduction earphone is a problem. In the following, I recommend five earphones, all of which are of good quality and cost-effective
1, Wissonly Hi Runner wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones
Wissonly wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones, the product I use the most, is the first brand I started to contact. When they were crowdfunding online, I participated.
The sound quality is what I am most satisfied with. I am not a professional music player, but from my personal experience, Wissonly Hi Runner is the best sound quality wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones I have ever used. It uses a large-sized 360-degree bone conduction vibration unit, and through structural optimization, the sounding area is increased by 35%, so that the sound range is wider, and the stereo feeling and shock of sound are stronger. Its anti-sound-leakage treatment is also very good. The whole body is completely sealed, and the algorithm is optimized to minimize the leakage of sound. I have tested it myself, and at a distance of 2 meters, the volume is turned on at 60%, so I can't hear the sound at all.
wissonly Hi runner’s body is made of memory titanium, which can self-adjust the contact area. It can ensure a good wearing experience of the earphone at any time, taking into account more users and usage scenarios.
Wissonly Hi Runner is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 chip, and the connection is more stable. It also has IPX8 professional sports waterproof +32g internal memory to swim in the water. The battery performance is also good, and it can play music continuously for 8-10 hours.
2.Philips 7607 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones
Its sounding unit adopt a large-size vibrator of 17mm, which makes it have the effect of high, medium and low triple-frequency balance in sound quality performance. The low-frequency dive is sufficient, the medium and high frequencies are clear and not harsh, but there will be some missing sounds. It is also equipped with an intimate LED night run lamp at the rear end of the body, which can turn on the LED by turning on the key three times in a row. It also has three modes, which is suitable for wearing at night, so that people around it can perceive their own position and ensure their own safety factor to a certain extent.Its IPX6 waterproof rating is not afraid of sweat in daily wear.
3 AfterShokz OPENRUN PRO wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones
Openrun Pro wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones are a product created by a technical team focusing on bone conduction technology. They have won the favor of many consumers with their characteristics such as bone conduction black technology, all-titanium design. The front end of Openrun Pro is ellipsoidal; The rear hanger has been ergonomically curved to fit the ear better, and the overall comfort of the headphones is very high. In terms of bone conduction, Openrun Pro adopts the newly upgraded PremiumPitch 2.0+ technology to optimize the direction of sound transmission and reduce sound leakage.
4.earsopen SS900 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones
This wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphone adopts the ear-clipping mode, and the novel wearing mode also makes it need to be worn with both hands. Moreover, there will be obvious discomfort of ear-clipping when worn for a long time. In the headphones’ body, the pressure control area is adopted, and the headphones can be controlled by clicking and double-clicking, etc. The single ear part weight of 8g basically has no weight sense during wearing. With the bone conduction vibrator technology newly developed by BoCo Company, it has a good performance in the low frequency range, but it has obvious sound leakage in the middle and high frequencies.
5.Haylou PurFree wireless Bluetooth bone conduction earphones
Haylou PurFree uses Qualcomm QCC3044 chip to make Bluetooth connection more stable, and also supports dual-device connection. And it also has microphone call noise reduction technology to make people's voices clearer. It is very light and is an open headphone, which also makes it have a better wearing experience. It is IP67 waterproof grade, and general sweat does not affect its work. It just cannot be used in swimming. It doesn't have built-in memory and can't be used when there's no cell phone signal, which is perhaps one of its drawbacks.
The above five bone conduction earphones are all products with good performance.Among them, wissonly and Aftershokz are the most recommended brands because they both have core technologies in this field. Compared with the two brands, wissonly's product parameters is better and cost-effective.
