Is bone conduction headphones worth buying?

The answer is worth it.

Maybe some friends don’t know much about the principle of bone conduction, so we first come to the principle of bone conduction headphones under a little science. As we all know, under normal environmental conditions, there are two ways of sound transmission, one is through air, and the other is through a certain medium. The traditional headphones we use are mainly through air. Bone conduction headphones use a certain medium (temporal bone of the head) to transmit sound. In the end, the sound is directly transmitted to the auditory nerve in the form of sound waves, instead of passing through the air to the eardrum, and then to our auditory nerve.

There are many advantages of bone conduction headphones that are irreplaceable:

1. The principle of bone conduction determines that bone conduction sports headphones do not need to transmit sound through the ear canal, so they will be more safer, firm and comfortable to wear.

2. Bone conduction sports headphones do not need to cover the ears or block the ear canal to achieve the purpose of listening like traditional headphones, so it has the effect of protecting the ears. Many professional physicians recommend using bone conduction headphones to listen to songs.

3. Ordinary wired earphones will transmit the sound of friction and collision into the ear through the earphone cable during exercise, while bone conduction earphones avoid this problem.

4. Bone conduction headphones are generally very small and lightweight, so they are more suitable for sports scenes than traditional headphones. Winto’s bone conduction sports earphone uses a hanging ear design and weighs much less than ordinary Bluetooth headphones. At the same time, the material of the earphone is very soft and can adapt to bending requirements when wearing, this is also extremely important for sports headphones. And the greatest thing about Winto’s bone conduction headphones is that it innovates the design of bone conduction headphones and avoids the general situation of bone conduction headphones leaking.

The disadvantages of bone conduction headphones are also obvious: the main problem is that the sound quality is not perfect. The main positioning of bone conduction headphones has always been “sports headphones”, which not only explains its advantages in sports scenarios, but also explains the bone conduction headphones’ sound quality is not up to the level of daily music headphones (based on equivalent price), such as lack of bass, sound leakage and other phenomena still exist. Secondly, compared with wired headphones of the same price, they have no price advantage, so people mainly consider to use bone conduction headsets in specific scenarios like sports.
