What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Bone Conduction Headphones and Are their good for Using?

Dec 12,2022 | Wissonly Brand

You will find that there are more and more friends wearing Bluetooth earphones.In addition to common head-mounted, in-ear, semi-in-ear headphones, in the past two years, the most popular one is bone conduction headphones.Today, I will introduce the relevant knowledge of them, hope you can choose the right headphones after reading it.

Advantages of bone conduction headphones:

1. Protect hearing

Compared with the air conduction method of traditional headphones, bone conduction headphones eliminates many steps of sound wave transmission. The sound does not need to pass through the ear. So it will not irritate the eardrum, which can protect your eardrum well and ensure that your hearing is not damaged. You only need to understand the sound wave transmission path of bone conduction and air conduction to fully feel the unparalleled advantages of them.

Bone conduction pathways: jawbone> inner auditory canal> cochlea> auditory nerve

Air conduction pathways: air > external auditory canal> eardrum> auditory ossicle > inner auditory canal> cochlea> auditory nerve

2. Comfortable to wear, clean and hygienic

Bone conduction headphones do not need to block the ears in wearing, so that the ears can be completely open, same as without headphones. so the ears are often refreshed. There will be no ear pain and ear stuffiness caused by no long-term wearing. They are more comfortable to wear.

At the same time, it is precisely because there is no need to block the ears in wearing, so that sweat and other bacteria will not enter the ears with the headphones, so they are suitable for patients with diseases such as otitis media.

They have the advantages of cleanliness and isolation of bacteria, and common headphones cannot have these advantages no matter how they are improved.

3. Suitable for sports

Bone conduction headphones are very suitable for exercise. I bought them precisely because of exercise needs. Yes, I can't stand that when exercising, I have no music accompaniment. When wearing them, both ears are in an open state,So you can also feel the surrounding environment well when exercising. They are worn with ear hanging, which makes them comfortable to wear and not easy to fall off. They can also prevent ear sweating, stuffiness and other conditions. They are naturally designed for sports

bone conduction headphones are good for sports

At the same time, some bone conduction headphones have their own memory, so they can be used as MP3 player without mobile phone. They are very practical for people who like to listen to songs during sports.

In addition, they mostly have good waterproof performance, so they can be used safely in swimming. Because they don’t need to pass through the air, so the sound received underwater is not different from the sound received on the ground.

Above advantages are a few ones of bone conduction headphones, and of course there are many other advantages that I am just exploring. Of course, just as a coin has two sides, they have some disadvantages. You can read the introduction below.

Disadvantages of bone conduction headphones

1. Sound quality:

Because sounds of bone conduction are transmitted through bones, there is loss in the sound transmission process, so the sound quality of them will be worse than that of traditional noise reduction headphones.

2. Sound leakage:

The sounds of them are transmitted through vibrator vibration,some sounds are also transmitted through air vibration, which brings about the problem of sound leakage. This cannot be completely avoided.

Some headphones teams invest more research and design in preventing sound leakage and solve most of the sound leakage problems. For example, I have a Wissonly Hi runner bone conduction headphones, which is an excellent representative of them.
