I might buy this coz' i'm single sided deaf, meaning I have 1 ear working, lost it when I was 7 yrs old. My latest hearing test says that I could still hear thru bone conduction, So this is a must try. This might be able to help me play PUBG coz that game heavily relies on finding the location of your opponent by hearing gunshot locations and footsteps.
Might be able to help my hearing thru the app petralax/petralex? Which amplifies sound so I could hear better.
Another thing is that I could protect my good ear from being damaged by using in ear earphones.
Bought them, Love them. Best part is using them in industrial environment. I am able to take phone calls and listen to music while wearing hearing protection. The noise canceling mic is great. welder, grinders, vac trucks, backup alarms you name it, still able to hold a phone call!!
Not worth it. Just get regular headphones so you don't have to charge them all the time. 6 hours is not a long charge. If your like me and you like watching youtube and twitch you want more then 6 hours unless you have a job or school then its worth it I guess. I like the look of the black ones.
someone sent me a gift certificate to buy something similar to this (original price was about $50 and i can just buy it at $5 because of the gift certificate) and im wondering if i should so i went to someone i can trust for a review of one.
I've got the Titanium Aftershokz and your description is spot on. Not going to replace your favorite music headphones, but they are comfortable and good for listening to everything ranging from music to podcasts, while allowing you to hear whats happening around you as well.
For anyone interested here is my personal review. Please know in advance that I am rarely a skeptic of new tech. I'll also generally be the first on board with enthusiasm. That being said I was looking really forward to trying these out and so I got my first pair today.
Note - I am using Trekz Titanium. Not the most recent model (although those are pre-purchase right now I believe)
1. Even at a low volume they can easily be heard by anyone in a six foot radius. Not crystal clear but well enough they could tell you the song your listening to. Amp up the volume and it can more than easily be heard. Which leads right into the next con.
2. If something can be that easily heard by everyone around then it means its actually using a full fledged "speaker" like delivery system and not something that transfers sound merely by vibration. (maybe my hopes were to high) The result is I actually hear the music better by (uncomfortably) placing the vibration pieces directly over my ear canals... like a normal set of off-the-ear headphones.
3. You have to get those vibration pieces right on... and I mean RIGHT on the perfect sweet spot or it doesn't work at all. How you jog with this on and without it moving off those spots is beyond me. There must be a lot of smooth runners our there.
4. If you want to get the best effect you must plug your ears and have a solid plug. Without that plug they are pretty much just off the ear headphones as I mentioned before. The speakers are set in such a way that it aims at the curve of your ear. The result is a bit deceitful or maybe misleading? So back to the solid plug. The music is stronger, the base is better BUT it still is semi muddy and semi muffled sounding. And of course everyone else is listening to your music. Personally I like to err on the side of politeness and not force everyone to listen to my music? I don't want to listen to someone's opera and they don't want to listen to my 80s rock (shame on them)
5. They double as a cell phone blue tooth calling apparatus. I wish they had just focused on making a majestic pair of earphones instead of trying to make them a master of all trades. Multi tasking might have hurt the over all objective.
1. Over the years I've gone through bluetooths and been disappointed with all of them. This bluetooth quality is actually the best. If this were sold as simply a bluetooth and the side effect was a cool way to listen to music with your ears open then I think it would be more accurate branding. Again, most people would hear the conversation of the people your speaking with so that would be a negative.
I really wanted these to perform exactly as I felt they were described but they didn't. I think it's a great concept but I can't help feeling like all the positive results mostly stem from an "Emperors new clothes" hype. Everyone says their cool + it's a great idea + you hope they work = Wow these are amazing and they work! Believe me, I've been there.
As for new tech and bone conduction I think they just... and I mean JUST barely squeak through the door. Yes there is some conduction going on but I think its 10% conduction and 90% well aimed acoustics.
when I'd saw it I am very excited. Ordered it kinda lucky they'd sent me wrong color cuz I don't like the music sound...May be too high of expectation on my part but I almost cried with the sound, in ears is irritated my ear canal so I'd wish this thing would have worked...T-T
found a pair for about $60 on amazon.... I'd be using them in an office setting. anyone think its worth it? Right now I use cheap philips ear buds with one ear bud in and I'm looking for a better listening experience while still being able to hear my phone ring and conversations around me. Just concerned about quality listening experience with these. seeing mixed reviews on youtube, mostly positive on amazon though.
There was background music so I couldn't quite hear, but do the headphones "leak"? Like, do the surrounding people hear any music? I've been looking into bone conducting glasses and I'm considering getting a pair, but I don't wanna be the douchebag on the bus who forces everyone else to listen to their music.
Here on GearBest you can find a bone conduction headset on sale, a good idea if you want to try a new audio experience without spent too much http://www.gearbest.com/earbud-headphones/pp_656084.html?vip=1930907
i thought the title was"Bone Reduction" instead of "Bone Conduction". and when Lewis said i wanted to try this for a long time, i thought he wanted to remove ribs to... you know. then he said "Conduction" and i thought: Yep, that makes more sense
If anyone happens to read the comments, I can recommend these especially for motorcyclists. You can wear earplugs, but still listen to music and have some situational awareness left when it comes to audio.
Also, helmets push these against the temporal bone, so the sound is way better than just wearing them normally. 10/10 for motorcycling.
