What is the difference between bone conduction headsets and common headphones

Their biggest difference is the way to transmit sound. bone conduction headsets use bones to transmit sound, while common headsets are air conduction headsets that use air to transmit sound. To understand this difference, I did a test. First put on bone conduction headsets, and then plugged my ears with my fingers, at this time I found that the sound became louder rather, which is amazing! But when I wear the common headphones, when I do the same action, I find the sound becomes smaller.This is the secret of bone conduction transmitting sound!

How do bone conduction headsets work

To understand how bone conduction headsets work, take me back to my middle school physics class. We know that there are three kinds of media that transmit sound, namely solid, air and liquid. Among the devices that transmit sound, it is more common to use air as the medium, such as speakers and common headphones. From this point of view, we can regard traditional headphones as air conduction headphones. They use air as the medium to transmit sound to the eardrum through “air conduction way”, and then transmit the sound to the auditory nerve through the vibration of the periosteum and hear music.
