What is bone conduction glasses?


With bone conduction technology the eardrum is not used to hear sounds, instead, it uses skin and bones. Therefore, the message is directly communicated to the cochlea as vibrations. Sound waves are decoded and converted into vibrations, which bypass the ear canal, eardrum, stapes, malleus, and incus reaching the cochlea directly. This is a fantastic invention to replace normal headphones that require inserting earbuds in your ears.
