Are Bone Conduction Headphones Safe in Noisy Work Environment?

Are Bone Conduction Headphones Safe for Noisy Work Areas?

Bone conduction headphones offer an innovative way of listening to audio, talking on a phone, or two-way radios. Unlike headphones with active noise cancellation, bone-conduction headphones keep the ear canals unobstructed to increase situational awareness. But how safe and well do these headphones operate in noisy work areas if they don’t cover your ears? Bone conduction headphones are considered safe in noisy work areas for listening and communication, with the addition of earplugs or covers when necessary. This article will explain how these headphones work and discuss their advantages and drawbacks to help you decide if they are ideal. Keep reading if you’re considering bone-conduction headphones! Why Bone Conduction Headphones are Safe in Noisy Work Environments Conventional headphones transmit sound waves through the air that are amplified as they pass through the outer ear, causing the eardrums to vibrate. Little bones amplify the vibrations in the middle ear before reaching the inner ear and turning the vibrations into electrical signals that the brain interprets as audible signals.   Bone-conduction headphones send vibrations directly to the inner ear through the jaw and skull bone, which means the headphones can sit outside the outer ear instead of on it. This design keeps the ear

Can Others Around You Hear Bone Conduction Headphones?

In recent years, bone conduction headphones have become increasingly popular. They are marketed as a safer and more efficient way to listen to music or take calls while you’re active. But can others hear what you’re listening to through your headphones?  Others around you can hear bone conduction headphones if the volume settings are too high. These headphones send sound waves through your ear and head bones to your inner ear and are typically inaudible to others. However, if the volume level is excessive, others around you may hear the audio.  Read on for an in-depth explanation of how these modern headphones work, the benefits of using them instead of regular headphones, and why others may hear them when volume levels are high.  How Can Others Hear Bone Conduction Headphones? These headphones work by transmitting sound waves through the bones in your head to your inner ear. This ability is what makes them an excellent option for people who want to listen to music or take calls while still being able to hear what’s going on around them.  However, these headphones can be just as easily overheard as traditional in-ear or over-the-ear headphones when volume levels are high.  Others can

Can Bone Conduction Headphones Cause Vertigo?

Can Bone Conduction Headphones Cause Vertigo?

Most people like wearing headphones and listening to music as they work, study, travel, or exercise. Bone conduction headphones are particularly unique since they allow you to enjoy your favorite music while still being fully aware of your surroundings. But are these headphones safe to use? While bone conduction headphones are mostly safe to use, they could contribute to vertigo if you listen to loud deafening music for too long. They bypass the eardrum, enabling hearing through the vibrations in the skull and jawbone. An extended exposure can cause pressure in the ear, leading to dizziness. In this article, you’ll find more detailed information on how bone conduction headsets might cause vertigo. Additionally, you’ll discover how these headphones work, who they’re most suitable for, and everything else you need to know to decide whether they’re safe to use.  How Bone Conduction Headphones Work? Bone conduction headphones work differently from regular headphones. The key differences include: Unlike standard headphones, they transmit sound waves via your skull rather than through the air.  They leave your ears completely open, enabling you to hear whatever is happening around you. The transducers sit on your cheekbones, right in front of your ears. They don’t pass

Do Bone Conduction Headphones Leak Sound?

Do Bone Conduction Headphones Leak Sound?

Bone Conduction Headphones are a truly unique piece of tech. They are completely different from any other earbuds on the market. But do bone conduction headphones leak sound? All headphones can leak sound if they are used on maximum volume. Some amount of sound leakage is normal and acceptable. Bone conduction headphones don’t leak significantly more sound than other types of headphones. Bone Conduction Headphones do leak more sound than in-ear headphones on average. Read on to learn why there’s sound leakage from bone conduction and all forms of headphones. We will also share a few handy tips that will help you reduce sound leakage. Why Do Bone Conduction Headphones Leak Sound? According to RTINGS.com, all headphones leak some sound; bone conduction headphones also leak sound because the sound escapes from the sides of the transducers. The headphones have drivers that vibrate to create sound. The vibrations are strong enough to make small gaps between the headphones and your skin. If your bone-conducting headphones have vents, there’ll be even more leakage. The problem is further amplified when you listen to loud music because the drivers create even stronger vibrations. That’s the reason why bone-conducting headphones leak more sound than in-ear

Bone Conduction Headphones With Noise-Induced Hearing Loss?

Bone Conduction Headphones With Noise-Induced Hearing Loss?

Bone conduction headphones have become increasingly popular among people experiencing Noise-Induced Hearing Loss or NIHL. But this does not mean you should make your purchase right away. There’s far more to learn about this exact topic! You can use Bone Conduction Headphones at low volumes with NIHL and listen to music and other formats. Bone conduction, a system that conducts sounds to the inner ear through the skull, keeping the ear canals open, is already used to make bone-anchored hearing aids.  Bone conduction headphones utilize a simple body function that allows you to hear sound through your cheekbones for those with some forms of hearing loss. Here, we’ll look at how these headphones work for those with noise-induced hearing loss. But before we peek into the details of NIHL and its connection to bone conduction headphones, we must first understand the mechanism of bone conduction and how exactly it improves your hearing experience. What Is the Function of Bone Conduction? Bone conduction is not limited to those with hearing issues. Just about every person experiences bone conduction. But they don’t distinguish the sound being sent to them because noise usually passes through the ears. For someone who uses bone conduction

Do Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones Have Good Battery Life?

Sometimes nothing triggers your frustration more than the words “charge me” coming from your bone conduction headphones when you are in the middle of a good book or a meeting. But are your headphones really to blame for their battery life? The battery life of bone conduction headphones lasts approximately 6 – 8 hours, depending on your average usage. Bone conduction headphones come equipped with high-quality batteries that can offer an acceptable standard of longevity between charging.  This article will discuss the various elements that affect the battery life of bone conduction headphones and which headphones you should choose. Factors That Affect Your Headphone’s Battery Life As the chart above shows, the size and compactness of your wireless headphones affect their battery life. A small pair of wireless earbuds will have less battery life than a larger pair of wireless over-the-ear “muff type” headphones or “cans” based on a more compact design.  Most wireless earbud’s batteries last approximately 5 to 8 hours. Depending on the type, average BlueTooth headphones can have a battery life of anywhere between 5 and 40 hours. When compared, your bone conduction headphones won’t necessarily offer a full-day auditory experience, but they will provide a solid

Do Bone Conduction Headphones Work With Earplugs?

Do Bone Conduction Headphones Work With Earplugs?

Bone Conduction Headphones are among the newest innovations in the audio wearables market. Because of how innovative they are compared to regular headphones or earbuds, they are gaining in popularity. Most people don’t know bone conduction headphones work with earplugs or the benefits.  Bone conduction headphones work with earplugs because of how the sound is transmitted to your inner ear. Instead of sending soundwaves into your ears, bone conduction headphones work by sending vibrations to the bones in your ear. This then sends the sound signals directly to your brain. Going by that, we can see how innovative and, frankly, incredible bone conduction headphones are. They are making use of the bones in your head to produce the sounds that you hear in your ears. In that sense, anything blocking your ears does not affect the sounds at all. But if you want to learn more about how these headphones work, you might want to read on. Can You Hear A Bone Conduction Headset While Wearing Earplugs? Yes, you can hear a bone conduction headset while wearing earplugs. This innovative format is the only solution to headphone-related activities where safety is a real concern. For example, if you are at

Facebook Patents Pioneering Hybrid Bone Conduction Audio Devices: Smartglasses, AR/VR

It seems like all the big companies are taking an interest in Hybrid Audio Systems Technology. In our last article, Apple Creates Another New Patent: Air & Bone-Conduction Headphones we recently talked at length about Apple and their journey from computing giant to the masters of digital music. Apple is always on the lookout for or pioneering the next big innovation in mobile or digital music technology. Or more specifically, the ways we listen to music and the devices we utilize, such as headphones. We’ve discussed how in 2016 then again in 2020 Apple patented new concepts for Bone Conduction headsets. In the years since the original patent was filed in 2016, no plans had come to fruition. We’ve speculated on why this might be, coming to the conclusion that the market and Apple themselves may not be ready to dip their toe into the Bone Conduction arena just yet. Bone Conduction Headphone Market is Growing The Bone Conduction market is growing, companies like AfterShokz have their target audience, but it’s still considered a niche product. Bone Conduction headphones are waiting for their moment to break out, we’re sure it’s coming at some point. But it’s going to take a

Apple Creates Another New Patent: Air & Bone-Conduction Headphones

You know when someone sees me in my Bone Conduction Headphones at the gym or somewhere. They sometimes ask me what those are (meaning my Bone Conduction Headphones) and I tell them and explain what they do. Often the reaction is: Wow or those are cool! Not everyone is on board with bone conduction headphones but everyone also does not have hearing problems from earphones yet. The Tech Evaluate team does our best to be impartial, but we really do love Apple products. Don’t get us wrong, we very much appreciate their competitors, but Apple seems to put certain artistry into everything we really like. They also know how to make our lives so much more convenient, but above all else, there’s one ability they have that makes us admire them so much. It’s Apple’s Uncanny Ability To Always Be Ahead Of The Curve Apple has an almost superhuman ability to predict (and set) trends. Not everything they touch turns to gold mind you, Fitbits are giving the Apple Watch some stiff competition. But most of the time, Apple knows when the tide is changing, and more often than not they are the ones leading the current. We’ve discussed this

How Bone Conduction Headphones Have Changed One Partially Deaf Man’s Life

How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life

Before the holidays, we wrote a blog post called “Bone Conduction Headphones – How can you hear something that’s not in your ear” The blog’s title was inspired by my friend asking me that very same question while we were together. As a project manager, prolific writer, and someone who works too much, I was busy writing my latest article while listening to an album through my Bone Conduction headphones. Due to Bone Conduction headphones sending the music directly into my inner ear, I was able to enjoy it while I concentrated on my work, but without shutting out my surroundings. I was at a friend and family function; after all, one which included dogs and small children all running around together. It was sensible to keep an eye (and both ears) on them just in case I was needed to help out if needed. Fortunately for me, my Bone Conduction headphones allow this due to their design. Other headphones may have blocked out the sound entirely. A Chance Conversation My friend is a bit of a technophobe. I’ve walked into his house before to see him shouting “Alexa on!” at his Google Home Hub, then wondering why nothing was happening. He

Bone Conduction Technology Leading to Headphones Through the 1800s and the 20th Century

Bone Conduction Technology Leading to Headphones In the Early 1800s Through the 20th Century

We have written extensively about the History of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology, paying particular attention to certain aspects and how each has shaped and formed the Bone Conduction Headphones we now enjoy.  This article is about the more recent history in the last 150 years and the progression of the inventors and the design through the 1930s and getting us closer to the Bone Conduction Headphones we wear today. The absolute joy of writing these articles is discovering the research and seeing the ripple effect in the technology and the players. From Bell Laboratories, Sonotone to Sennheiser, Microsoft, and the U.S. Navy to Zenith Radio, they are all here lurking in the background because they have utilized, cited, or studied these inventions for themselves. For many of us, History is a blast!! History of Bone Conduction Technology and The Military Our “History of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology and The Military” article explored how the technology was utilized by the armed forces (and still is). It explored how innovation in a time of crisis is a recurring theme throughout history and how war has often been a factor in drastically improving technological achievement.

Bone Conduction Headphones For Those With Hearing Loss

Bone Conduction Headphones For Those With Hearing Loss

Bone Conduction’s Solution To Hearing Impairment Bone Conduction technology as a solution to hearing impairment has existed for nearly 200 years. Our recent blog “Historic Milestones In Bone Conduction Headphone Technology” took a deep dive into the genesis of Bone Conduction technology, specifically Ludwig van Beethoven’s innovative idea to conquer his own increasing deafness as he got on in years. If you’ve not read this blog, yet we recommend you check it out. Also, read “The History Of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology And The Military” if you want to dig even deeper. Now we’re not going to get into the detail of Historic Milestones, as that one was about the history of Bone Conduction technology as a whole and it’s patents. But briefly, the concept of Bone Conduction was probably first proposed by Aristotle (circa 350 BC) in the form of “air internus”. It was Beethoven who created his own Bone Conduction device by attaching a rod between himself and his piano, allowing the sound vibrations to travel through his skull. This allowed him to hear the sound and bypass his ear canals. And thus, Bone Conduction technology was further utilized. Bone Conduction Over the Centuries Over the centuries the legendary composer’s Bone Conduction method

Hearing Loss Caused By Loud Earbuds, Airpods, And Headphones

Hearing Loss Caused By Loud Earbuds, Airpods, And Headphones

Many people enjoy listening to podcasts or music while exercising, and a lot of teens and children use headphones regularly while playing video games. Headphones are particularly useful when you’re traveling for long periods, such as on an airplane. Everyone can listen or watch what they want without bothering the person next to them. We actually think Bone Conduction Headphones are safer and better for not only hearing your surroundings while you are listening to your personal listening device. But we also feel they are better for tinnitus because they are not next to your eardrum like Apple Airpods and earbuds are. They rest on your cheekbones. How Safe Is It For Adults and Kids To Wear Earbuds, Airpods, and Headphones? That said, how safe is it really for adults and your children to wear Earbuds, Airpods, and Headphones? Is our headphone use contributing to noise-induced hearing loss, even among our children? Experts do agree that listening to any listening device too loudly and for too long can damage your or your child’s hearing. Unfortunately, noise-induced hearing loss can’t be regained. Furthermore, hearing loss can impact a person’s social and educational development as well as negatively affect their employment. In

Historic Milestones in Bone Conduction Headphone

Historic Milestones in Bone Conduction Headphone Technology

We’ve been examining the history of Bone Conduction technology over several different articles. The last one we released, “The History Of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology And The Military” looked at the technology’s advancement in the hands of the military, we compared it to the internet, and examined at what point does military technology make its way to the civilian market.  Bone Conduction technology actually goes back further than this, where the military did have a significant role in advancing the tech (and in many ways still do) they didn’t invent it. As ever the military were innovators rather than creators. So today we’d like to look back a little further and try to identify some of the historic milestones that have taken place in regard to Bone Conduction technology and see if this can shed any light on its origins and give users an insight into what makes the technology special. We were going to focus primarily on the various patents that have been filed over the years, there are plenty of them, but we are fairly sure just listing patents wouldn’t be a very interesting read. Therefore, we’ve done our best to make our examples as colorful as possible. We will

History of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology and the Military

We’ve touched on the History of Bone Conduction Headphone Technology and the Military subject several times in previous blogs discussing Bone Conduction technology, but we felt like it may be worth a deeper dive. After all, this is one of the main arenas of life where technology became essential and in doing so, got noticed by the rest of the world. For this reason, we feel like it shouldn’t be ignored, it’s an important chapter in the story for Bone Conduction technology and is well worth exploring in more detail. “Innovation in a time of crisis” Like many technological innovations before it, Bone Conduction technology started out as a specialist military communication function. It’s a fact, a sad one, but a fact nonetheless that a lot of the technology we use and take for granted today was created to aid our armed forces in a particular conflict. “Innovation in a time of crisis” is generally what it’s referred to and there are plenty of examples of it throughout history. Although some of these innovations actually can occur within peacetime or relative peacetime. Many of them can be made as a way to prevent conflict or to gain the upper hand

Where Do You Use Your Bone Conduction Headphones

Where Do You Use Your Bone Conduction Headphones

I’m writing this articles post for my own benefit just as much as everyone else’s on this occasion, what I mean by that is I’m looking for inspiration and ideas. Our regular readers will know that over the past few years my Bone Conduction headphones have now become my primary headphones.  A pair that started out as my 3rd set, alongside my everyday Apple Beats and my noise-canceling oversized Skull Candies, have now become my number one set. I feel a little bit guilty if I’m being honest, especially for my Apple Beats which have now been relegated to my spare pair. First Pair of Bone Conduction Headphones I originally bought my Bone Conduction headphones after doing research for some of the other articles I was working on. I thought it would be useful to understand how they worked through direct usage and to see where they could improve my lifestyle. Something we’ve spoken about in a previous articles. We’ve also touched on locations too. What places do you use your Bone Conduction headphones and what locations do you choose not to use them? That is the question I’m asking today, and I’d love to hear from readers and my

Would Your Lifestyle Benefit From Bone Conduction Headphones

Would Your Lifestyle Benefit From Bone Conduction Headphones?

For example, if you listen to headphones during times when you most value their noise-canceling features, wanting to relax and block out the world, then Bone Conduction headphones may not be the best choice at that given moment. However, if you’re in a quiet place like lying in bed and you want to do this, then their deep vibratory signal can be quite hypnotic. Bone conduction headphones are ideal for certain scenarios and lifestyles. In fact, they make listening to music and audio possible in situations when it previously may not have been available. Cycling, for example, is an activity that a lot of people would enjoy doing while listening to music or a good audiobook, myself included. Someone, I know who lives in England often cycles while wearing Apple Beats headphones. He says they are a truly awesome “gadget” and generally go everywhere with him, but in recent months they’ve been relegated more and more by his new Bone Conduction Headphones. And riding a bike is one of those activities that they’ve taken over. Bone Conduction Headphones and Cycling Those who know him know he is an avid cyclist. he doesn’t really do it for transport purposes (because he

Bone Conduction Headphones; How Can You Hear Something That’s Not In Your Ear?

Bone Conduction Headphones: How Can You Hear Something That’s Not In Your Ear?

This was a question I received from a friend about his father in law earlier this week while they were on a family vacation. He asked because while he was working on his laptop surrounded by close and extended family, he had his Bone Conduction headphones on, with the melodious tones of Brandon Flowers in his ears from his writing while surrounded by distractions’ playlist. His question was a good one, and he answered him by letting him use the headphones for a little while so he could hear for himself. The truth is his father in law is the sort of guy who really needed to experience the headphones to truly appreciate how they worked. His efforts to explain it to him the traditional way just caused him to become perplexed. His words fell on deaf ears. Literally, because he uses a hearing aid. However, this actually helped him understand how Bone Conduction technology works, as it allowed him to compare that to his hearing aid technology. I think they won him over, which is good news because at the time of writing he still not gotten him anything for Christmas. He said he now knows exactly what to

The Benefits Of Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones

The Benefits Of Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones

Those who use Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones make some pretty bold claims; “I’ll never go back to traditional headphones”, “You can feel the music instead of just hearing it”, to choose a couple. It appears they’ve stumbled upon something magical and after experiencing it for myself I’m inclined to agree. On one of my previous blogs, I discussed my own personal journey with headphones, from when I was a child to a busy adult. I’ve always had a penchant for portable audio devices and I’m always keen to try new innovative technology to see if it improves my listening habits. I have a tendency to be disappointed when something doesn’t add the improvements I’m looking for and overjoyed when it does. So, for this article, I’m going to share some of the benefits that I and other users of Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones have reported. But first here’s a brief explanation of what they are and how they work: Feeling The Rumble! Bone conduction technology works by allowing the sound to reverberate through our bones instead of going directly through our eardrum. While some Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones do have an earbud that does transmit sound into our eardrum, or

Are Bone Conduction Headphones Really Safe For Me

Are Bone Conduction Headphones Really Safe For Me?

Are Bone Conduction Headphones Really Safe For Me? Bone conduction headphones have caused a bit of stir or controversy, and in all honesty, it is justified. It’s often the case that when a new piece of innovative technology becomes popular, its detractors come out of the woodwork. Sometimes this is entirely justified, and the public uses something that can potentially do them harm, but in other cases, it’s just a lot of noise about nothing. Our aim for this article of our Bone Conduction Headphone discussions is to separate the fact from the fiction. To bust the myths associated with bone conduction technology to provide a conclusive answer to the question; Are bone conduction headphones safe? Or are they safer or less safe than any other form of headphones? Yes, the answer is that they leave your ears open, and if not played too loud, they are very safe. We will also be using a scientific approach here. This blog post will not be our opinion, it will use evidence from those much more learned than us to reach its conclusion, citing studies, examining the technology itself and drawing from sources that have asked the same (or similar) questions about

Headphones Vs Earphones – Which Are Better?

Headphones Vs Earphones – Which Are Better?

 Vs  How the Industry has changed When I stop and actually think about it, headphones and earbuds have been an important part of my life. Regardless of which device they were attached to, they have always enabled me to lose myself in a good audiobook or one of my favorite albums while I go about my day completing a range of tasks. Frankly, my life would be less entertaining without them and I’d arguably be a much less well-rounded person. Technology has evolved and as a result, so have headphones and earphones. These changes have had a drastic impact on my listening habits and the habits of others. Interestingly I’ve also found myself favoring one over the other and then switched back again over the years. Early Headphones Like so many other people in the 90s, I owned a Walkman with a large pair of headphones. While both devices were too bulky to carry around with me, they did often make an appearance on long car journeys, making these journeys more enjoyable. I remember listening to my Dad’s Aerosmith cassettes and Sherlock Holmes or Narnia stories on tape. These headphones would certainly be considered retro in 2019 but in 1997

“What’s the main difference between Bone Conduction headphones and normal headphones?” is the question I seem to always get asked. As regular readers will know my pair of AfterShokz Bone Conduction Headphones are practically glued to my head now wherever I go. I’m wearing them right now as I write this, listening to some Johnny Cash, so let’s Walk The Line and Fall Into A Burning Ring Of Fire while we try to once again answer that question. I’m used to the question now because of how frequently I’m seen in my stylish pair of Bone Conduction headphones. This technology is becoming much more common, but they are still a novelty for most people. Something they’ve seen before but never really thought about until the guy on the treadmill next to them is using them in full view. I also suspect my fellow gym-goers are secretly calling me The Bone Conduction Guy’ behind my back. I wonder what they’d say if they knew I also wrote blogs about them too? I’d never escape that nickname then. The Guy Who Has New Gadgets I don’t mind really. I quite enjoy being the guy who has new gadgets before everyone else. I

How Loud Is Too Loud With Bone Conduction Headphones?

How Loud Is Too Loud With Bone Conduction Headphones? I have done a lot of experimenting with Headphones and Earbuds, trying to find the perfect pair. I also have Tinnitus and Noise-induced Hearing Loss, as I have discussed in previous blog articles. I don’t want to make the Tinnitus worse. Once I found Bone Conduction Headphones, it made my life easier. How Loud Is Too Loud With Bone Conduction Headphones? This goes for all types of Headphones and Earbuds. With any sound, the recommended exposure limit is 85 decibels in 8 hours, and it is considered hazardous and dangerous over that. 85 Decibels is equivalent to noise from heavy city traffic, so not as loud as you would think. I listened to music on my Earphones and Ear Bud’s way too loud for way too long. I used them mostly at the gym and on my motorcycle.

What is the difference between Wireless Noise “Isolation” and Noise “Cancelling,”? Hello everyone.

Tinnitus in Both Ears Once in a while, you find something so exciting you cannot wait to tell the world!!! I have Tinnitus in both ears (ringing in the ears), and I can tell you exactly how I got it.
