Do Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones Really Work and How About Their advantages?

Mar 06,2023 | David

Before buying any product, you can never go wrong by asking if it is really useful. Even if it is a popular product, listen to me and develop this habit. Today I will talk about the new popular product - bone conduction Bluetooth headphones. I have used them for 2 years, and I am an experienced user, so let me show you some bone conduction facts.

Do bone conduction Bluetooth headphones really work?

As a sports fan, I think bone conduction Bluetooth headphones are really useful. As you all know, exercises are sometimes boring, and accompanied by music, it will better stimulate your sports potential. It is definitely not acceptable to wear over-ear headphones during exercise. In the past, I've been wearing in-ear headphones, but they tend to make me lose other sounds except music, which is actually a bit dangerous. And if you sweat a lot during exercise, you will feel that your ears are hot and humid, which is very uncomfortable, and it is also prone to bacteria. I also used to carry around a small speaker in my fanny pack, and I had to crank up the volume to hear the sound, but again it bothered other people.

These three questions stuck with me until I started using bone conduction Bluetooth headphones. They are open-ear headphones that don't need to tuck into the ear, and the first 2 problems are naturally solved. And they transmit sound through bones, so that you can hear the music yourself without disturbing others, and the third problem is solved. So, for sports fans like me, bone conduction Bluetooth headphones are really useful,They have many advantages.

Advantages of bone conduction Bluetooth headphones

Bone conduction Bluetooth headphones have three very prominent advantages.

Advantage 1 : safer to use


Compared with common headphones, bone conduction Bluetooth headphones are placed on the cheekbones in front of the ears when in use. They conduct sound directly through the skull bone to the inner ear, keeping your ears open at all times, which does not interfere with any external ambient sound entering the ear. The wearer can even chat with friends around him while listening to music. Therefore, you can hear the sound of the outside world by wearing bone conduction Bluetooth headphones during outdoor sports, on buses and subways, running, and cycling. The wearer can maintain awareness of the surrounding environment at all times to avoid accidents. Therefore, they can provide higher security than common headphones.

Advantage two: more hygienic to use

Whether it's headphones or earbuds, covering your ears when using them can make your ears stuffy, which can lead to the growth of bacteria inside your ears. Especially when the ear canal is blocked, the inside will become humid and hot, and bacteria will grow more rapidly. Therefore, wearing in-ear headphones is also one of the important reasons for many young people's ear canal inflammation. What about bone conduction Bluetooth headphones? They don't cause these problems. Because they do not touch or cover the ears, they can keep the ears hygienic and clean.

Advantage three: more healthy use

bone conduction Bluetooth headphones do not need to be worn in the ear, so the injury caused by the headphone rubbing against the ear canal is avoided. Moreover, the vibration wave of them is smaller than that of ordinary headphones, and the damage to hair cells in the ear can be reduced by about 80%. Therefore, bone conduction Bluetooth headphones are more ear-friendly and healthier to wear than ordinary headphones.

Of course, bone conduction Bluetooth headphones are not 100% perfect, and they have drawbacks, such as their sound quality being difficult to achieve the effect of traditional noise-canceling headphones. They really release the ears, which also lose the "sound insulation" or noise reduction effect of traditional headphones, so in extremely noisy environments, it will be difficult for bone conduction Bluetooth headphones to transmit sound to your inner ear. However, the sound quality of them has improved a lot compared to the previous two years with technological progress. Some mainstream brands like wissonly and aftershokz have excellent sound quality.


In general, bone conduction Bluetooth headphone has obvious advantages, their disadvantages have been gradually improved. It is a headphones worth buying.Next, I will recommend some excellent headphones.

1. Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction Bluetooth headphones


Reason for recommendation:

Wissonly is the brand with the best experience among the bone conduction Bluetooth headphones I have used this year. It is one of the best in terms of sound quality, wearing experience, configuration, etc., and performs well in terms of product quality and hearing protection effect.

Wissonly Hi Runner has excellent sound quality, and it adopts directional vibration unit, which can increase the vibration area by 35% compared with common bone conduction Bluetooth headphones, reduce the loss of bone conduction sound transmission, and make the sound more shocking and powerful. Its anti-sound-leakage performance is also excellent.I have actual tested shows that when the volume is turned on at 70%, I can't hear its sound at a distance of about 2 meters.

Comfort: The body of Wissonly Hi Runner is made of high-tech and low-sensitivity silica gel, which contains no chemical components to avoid allergy. It feels as smooth as baby's skin, even if it is worn for a long time, it won't be uncomfortable.

Wissonly Hi Runner have very high product parameters. It is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 chip to make the connection more stable. It has IPX8 waterproof rating, and it can also be used for diving. It has 32G memory to store 5,000 songs, and you can use it as an MP3 player.


2.Philips A6606 bone conduction Bluetooth headphones


Reason for recommendation:

With IPX7 waterproof property, Philips A6606 can be soaked in water for a short time, and has good waterproof performance. At the same time, surprisingly, LED night run lamps are arranged at both ends of the fuselage, which can light up the rear road at night, thus ensuring its own safety factor. The unique bone conduction vibrator makes its sound quality good, and the double shrapnel structure can reduce the distortion. However, when playing high-frequency sound, there will be obvious vibration. If you can accept the vibration of medium and high frequency, it is also good.

3.AfterShokz OPENRUN PRO bone conduction Bluetooth headphones


Reason for recommendation:

The body of the Openrun Pro weighs only 26g, and it adopts Qualcomm QCC3024 low-energy chip +PremiumPitch 2.0 improved double suspension vibration transmission system and suspension damping technology, CVC call noise reduction algorithm and double silicon microphone. The battery life lasts for 8 hours, and the charging method is magnetic charging. The charging interface has a liquid residue detection function to ensure that it has a good waterproof performance. Its waterproof grade is IP67, and there is no problem with normal sweat. A short period of rain can be used, but it can't be used for swimming.

4.Earsopen peace tw-1 bone conduction Bluetooth headphones


Reason for recommendation:

PEACE TW-1 bone conduction Bluetooth headphones have a small and exquisite appearance. The surface is made of high-grade soft silicone material, and the weight is only 9g. You only need to hang them on the ear like earrings, they are more comfortable to wear and will not cause allergies. At the same time, they also have IP67 waterproof grade, and direct rinsing after exercise is not a problem, but they are not suitable for swimming. The sound quality and anti-sound-leakage performance are not bad, and the daily sports use can be satisfied.

The disadvantage is the clip-on wearing method, and wearing it for a long time may cause discomfort.

5.Haylou PurFree bone conduction Bluetooth headphones


Reason for recommendation:

Haylou PurFree performs well overall, the headphone is only weighs 28g, there is almost no weight sense to wear. And the surface of the headphones is made of soft materials, and the wearing comfort is good. In terms of sound quality, it is also equipped with directional audio directional technology. It is a technology that allows the timbre to be concentrated and dive deeper at low frequencies, so that the rhythm of the song will be stronger. The battery life is good, and it lasts for 8 hours of music playback.

The waterproof grade is not high, and there is no built-in storage, which may be its disadvantage.

Among the several bone conduction Bluetooth headphones recommended above, Wissonly and aftershokz are my favorite brands. Compared with them, Wissonly is more cost-effective and worth buying.
