What Are The Benefits of Wireless Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones
Apr 03,2023 | David
In daily life, the sound of teeth colliding can be clearly heard by us, but people around us cannot hear it. This is probably the nearest case of bone conduction technology around us. When you collide your teeth, you may hardly imagine that this sound transmission method will be applied by talented engineers to create the latest popular product-wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphone is a type of headphone using bone conduction technology. Its biggest feature is that it uses bone conduction to transmit sound, uses human bones as the medium for transmitting sound, and directly transmits sound to the auditory nerve to form hearing.
They have many benefits,So many ear doctors also highly recommend them.
What are the benefits of wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Since wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones do not require the use of both ears, they also bring some health benefits. They do not need to be stuffed into the ear when worn, they can keep the inside of the ear canal clean and hygienic. And the surface of them is smooth, easy to clean, and its body can keep clean. Traditional air conduction headphones are worn either into the ear or covering throughout the ear, which will cause bacteria to deposit inside the ear. So wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are of great help to the ear health. They use the principle of bone conduction to transmit sound that does not need to pass through the eardrum. So unless the volume is turned up too much, normal volume will not affect hearing when the headphones are used.
Wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are also very friendly to be used in sports scenes. Wireless headphones themselves are sport-friendly, and the non-in-ear characteristics make them more suitable for sports scenes than other headphones. They are also much more stable in wearing than traditional wireless Bluetooth headphones. Their integrated body structure is tightly fastened to the temples on both sides,and no matter how you move, they will firmly stick to the ears, following the rhythm of your body. So you do not worry about their falling off.
At the same time, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones can provide higher safety compared to common headphones. They are placed on the cheekbones in front of the ears when used. They directly conduct sound through the skull to the inner ear. Both ears are always open, so the phones will not affect any external environmental sounds into the ears. Users can even listen to music while chatting with friends around them. Therefore, in outdoor occasions, on the bus and subway, and when walking on the road, you can hear the sound of outside world, so as to avoid accidents.
Of course, wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are not 100% perfect, and they also have some disadvantages. For example, their sound quality is not as good as that of traditional noise-canceling headphones. For example they have problems of sound leakage. Fortunately, the entire industry is working hard to solve these problems. And some excellent brands, such as Wissonly and Aftershokz, have improved the sound quality and sound leakage perfectly.
Bone conduction headphones have many benefits, which mainly depend on the way they work.
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.
More and more people are interested in bone conduction headphones, 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 headphones
Reason for recommendation:
Wissonly wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones are the first brand I started to contact. When they recommended it on the online crowdfunding platform, I noticed it, after saw that many people were recommending, and I bought it. This Hi runner I used for a few months, and the overall performance was better than I expected.
Some wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones leak sound, and you know that I take privacy very seriously, so I'm very concerned about anti-sound-leakage technology. Wissonly Hi Runner does a very good job in the field. Its body is sealed, and through structural optimization and algorithm adjustment, its sound leakage is minimized. The official claim they can eliminate 90% of sound leakage. I do not have professional equipment to test, but I have tried and found that at 60%-70% volume, the sound is completely inaudible at a distance of 1.5 meters, which makes me very satisfied. I have actually compared it with other wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones, and the Wissonly Hi Runner has currently the best sound leakage reduction solution in wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones.
The Wissonly Hi Runner is also particularly comfortable in the wearing experience. Because the material of the whole machine is high-tech hypoallergenic silicone, and it is coupled with the ergonomic design that conforms to the structure of the human ear, so that users will not bring any burden to the ear under long-term wear.
Sound quality as the core performance is undoubtedly worth mentioning. Wissonly Hi Runner uses a large-sized vibration unit, the sound range is wider, the sound is more three-dimensional and deeper, so the sound quality is undoubtedly very good. And it is also equipped with a Bluetooth 5.0 chip, the connection is more stable. And it will not be disconnected when used, which is a good experience. The Wissonly Hi Runner also comes with 32GB of built-in storage that can store 5,000 songs, so you can use it completely as an MP3 player to enjoy music without your phone when you go out for a run.
2. Philips A6606 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Reason for recommendation:
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 OPENRUN PRO wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Reason for recommendation:
Openrun Pro wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones with ergonomic ear-sticking design, which is worn by hanging ears, it have a light body, so they are comfortable and stable to wear. It supports IP67 waterproof, adopts magnetic contact to avoid water seepage for charging, and in order to be waterproof, it is coated with antioxidant nano-coating to isolate water vapor on the chip. Normal sweat and ordinary washing are no problem, even in the rain for a short time is ok, but it can't be used for swimming.
4.Earsopen SS900 wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Reason for recommendation:
The SS900 headphones are equipped with a bone conduction miniature vibration unit inside the body, which reduces the weight of the body and improves the performance of low frequencies, allowing a wide range of sound. With the help of PreciseAir 3.0 integrated technology, the internal parts of the body are simplified and the sound leakage is reduced. It has IPX7 level waterproof,can be use while rainning but cannot be used underwater for long time. Its 5.2 Bluetooth version makes the connection more stable. It also supports Type-C charging mode, there is also a fast charging mode.
The overall performance is good, but there are obvious shortcomings at high frequencies, and there will be harsh sound phenomena.
5.Haylou PurFree wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones
Reason for recommendation:
Its body surface is made of silicone material, which is very comfortable. The small size body is its relatively big advantage, which makes it light and without a sense of weight while wearing. The sound quality is good in the field wireless Bluetooth bone conduction headphones, of course, it cannot be compared with traditional noise-canceling headphones. The battery life is good, you can listen to music for 8 hours, and it also supports fast charging.
In terms of waterproof feature, its waterproof grade reaches IP67, daily sweating, short-term rain, or washing are all no problem to it, but it cannot be used in swimming.
Among the above five Bluetooth bone conduction headphones, Wissonly and Philip are my favorites. Their products are of excellent quality. In contrast, if I have to choose one, I will choose Wissonly because it has better cost performance.
