What Is Bone Conduction?
Have you ever listened to your own voice being played back after being recorded and wondered why it sounds so different to what you would have expected? One of the main reasons for this is Bone Conduction and the fact that the skull conducts lower frequencies better than the air around us. The unusual thing about Bone Conduction is that the vibrating material is not air, but a solid object.
Bone Conduction is defined as "The conduction of sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull". The transmission of sound via Bone Conduction is certainly not a new technology having been around since the early 1950's and can be seen used within many industries most notably being the method used to help transmit sound in many Hearing Aids. It has also been used in communication devices that help in hard to hear environments such as underwater for Swimmers and Scuba Divers as well as Military Communication. Most recently it has even been reported that a German Media Company has been testing new advertising programs involving the transmission of advertisments via the vibration of the windows within a commuter train. Commuters simply rested their heads on the train window and instead of hearing the normal sound of the tracks and carriage were transmitted an advertising message all via Bone Conduction!
The Aftershokz Way
Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process — Sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. Aftershokz have taken the concept to the next level through development of a suite of proprietary audio technologies and design patents. The result: headphones that deliver unrivaled situational awareness and comfort. It doesn’t seem sensible that audio traveling through your bones instead of your ears could be so finely tuned. It wouldn’t be possible without Aftershokz PremiumPitch technology, which assures the finest in bone conduction audio, with a range that suits Music and Voice. Durably designed to withstand high-impact activities, all Aftershokz headphones will power through daily sweat sessions and wicked weather. A nanotechnology coating and watertight rubber gaskets repel sweat and moisture from the inside out. Natural sound leakage is also a common drawback found with most headphones and earbuds, especially at high volumes. The Aftershokz LeakSlayer was designed to release sound generated by the transducers in order to cancel sound generated by the housing, significantly reducing leakage, even when compared to traditional headphones and earbuds.

Aftershokz offer a complete range of headphones providing the ultimate open ear listening experience for every situation. From the top of the range Wireless TREKZ Air through to the original TREKZ Titanium and wired Titanium SPORTZ, all Aftershokz headphones have been designed with safety and comfort in mind. They provide ambient sound and situational awareness with nothing sitting inside or covering the ears ensuring you have the best possible listening experience without affecting safety or blocking out the World around you.
