Bone conduction is no new technology. Back in 1924, the famous scifi writer, Hugo Gernsback, registered the very first patent for a bone conduction listening device.
In his article, Acoustic Apparatus, published by US Patent Office in 1923, he said:
"I have constructed an instrument having relatively small bit pieces adapted to be gripped between the teeth and which are directly carried by the polar projections of a small electromagnet connected with a microphone or other suitable sound sensitive mechanism."
We’ve heard various people talking about bone conduction technology during the past.”Not as advertised at all“, “basically two loud speakers“, “people around can hear everything“, “don’t sound as good as regular types” etc. It’s true that bone conduction has its downsides.
“The major disadvantages bone conduction was faced with were the relatively weak bass and sound leakage.”
Maybe it was true but with Mutrics Bluetooth wireless inner apple mic headphones GB30 or Musig X. I don’t think it is the problem. I wear the headphone mainly during my everyday commuting and night running. In both scenarios the headphone works amazing. I can hear the rest of the world with it just like I normally do. Since this headphone keeps my ears open, I no longer need to worry about accident caused by hearing problems.
Every day commute takes up about 2 hours of my time and during this time I wear my Bose 700 active noise cancelling headphones listening to podcasts. The immersive experience those headphones provide is exceptional. But sometimes I would just gaze with my empty eyes at nothing, being completely unaware of what I was listening to and where I was. I was lost. I missed the hustle and bustle of the crowds, the birds tweeting, cars honking. I would rather immerse myself in that rather than this hollowness. It was a feeling of isolation, created by the very device I once yearned for. If only there were a device that could help out of it. This pair of Mutrics wireless headphones is really my life saver.
I’m not going to lie about it but there is some sound leakage when in quiet environment. After all, sound is all about vibration. If you engage in your activities in noisy environment, that leakage should not be a problem at all. Mutrics focuses our products on outdoor activities and for that field, this headphone truly lives up to their promise.
