Those who use Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones make some pretty bold claims; “I’ll never go back to traditional headphones”, “You can feel the music instead of just hearing it”, to choose a couple. It appears they’ve stumbled upon something magical and after experiencing it for myself I’m inclined to agree.
On one of my previous blogs, I discussed my own personal journey with headphones, from when I was a child to a busy adult. I’ve always had a penchant for portable audio devices and I’m always keen to try new innovative technology to see if it improves my listening habits.

What Is Digital Eye Strain?
The prolonged use of electronic screens, including smartphones, computers, tablets, and e-readers that can lead to digital eye strain. This condition, also called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), refers to a group of eye and vision problems.
The problems arise because the use of the digital screen overtaxes a person’s near vision.

The screen might also have a variety of moving images, requiring your eyes to shift focus. All this activity is demanding on your eye muscles.
There are actually several safety benefits to using bone conduction headphones. Before it was commercialized the technology was actually used for several other purposes. As with many advances in technology it was initially used by the military to help transmit sound in a non-traditional way.
Since then it has been adapted over the years to help perfect hearing aid technology, allowing those who are hearing impaired to pick up sound in a way that allows them to hear as well as anyone else. There are several different forms of deafness, but for the ones that are associated with the eardrum, bone conduction technology in their hearing aids has been life-changing. These individuals pick up all of their sounds this way and have no complaints when it comes to the technology’s safety.
