For young people who have a history of recurrent ear infections it is vital that they be warned that use of personal stereos with headphones is likely to jeopardize their hearing. Right. Maybe it’s high time for me to figure out a way, a new way of absorbing sound to my ears.
There is a new product can help you solve this problem that Both can listen to music and do not affect others rest. it is Bone conduction headphones.
Normal sound waves travel through the air to our ear drums. The ear drums decode these sound waves into a different type of vibrations that are received by the Cochlea, also known as the inner ear. The Cochlea is connected to our auditory nerve, which can transmit the sounds to our brain, so we hear the sound. Perhaps we also have some knowledge about air conduction, but it is much different about bone conduction.
Bone conduction bypasses the eardrums when transmitting sounds. In bone conduction listening, the bone conduction headphones perform the role of your ear drums. The headphones decode sound waves and convert them into vibrations, then the skull transmit the vibrations directly to the Cochlea – so the ear drum is never involved.
Maybe you will feel it is a little incomprehensible about bone conduction, it accompanies us every day. For example: Cover your ears with your hands, and talk to yourself, no matter how small the voice is, you can hear yourself voice, this is the result of bone conduction.
If you see someone on the street wearing headphones in front of the ears but not over the ears, that person is probably not crazy but probably the smartest dude around here, because he’s using bone conduction headphones.
Instead of pumping sound into your ear canal, it relies on the part of temporal bone in front of your ears to conduct the vibration (sound), it is hard to explain how it feels but you can ask your doctor to perform a Rinne’s on you to get the hang of it. Bone conduction is the best when you are list music in loud places, the volume doesn’t have to go up to hurt your ears either. Enough of messing around at science museum,
