Aftershokz M2 Bone Conducting Headphones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Was browsing around and ran into these.

It reminds me of the old Bonephone from a decade or two ago that used simply a rectangular pad to transmit the sound to directly vibrate your inner earbone. Nobody could hear a thing except you.

The last Bonephone I saw on ebay fetched a very surprisingly large sum.

 

So as far as I can tell , nobody will hear a thing except you, in there is NO external noise at all, and at the same time I would imagine you can hear all around you also.  That would be a strange experience, or maybe not bigsmile_face.gif

Seems like these are also waterproof

 

I assume there are also currently some bluetooth jobs using similar tech now. I wouldn't know I don't BT or use Phones much.

 

Anyhow check them out.

I tried cutting and pasting the tech specs but it got goofy, so hit the tiny tab and see for yourself.

 

Checked a few reviews and one that stood out was there was a person that had trouble hearing due to an accident, and these look like they bypassed that for them. Interesting anyhow.

 I'm sure these have their place and time.

I bet you'd get a lot of strange looks when wearing these.

I've seen them on Amazon and I've heard a bone conducting pair before that were one of the worst sounding things ever, I don't know how good these would be but they can't be any worse.

I'm guessing AfterShokz Bluez is no better than the older models...

Cool concept but poor implementation frown.gif
