Well, it took me a month to get back here to my Blog because the Salmon are running in Alaska. You have to get your fish in when you can to live the subsistence life.

Tinnitus in Both Ears

Once in a while, you find something so exciting you cannot wait to tell the world!!! I have Tinnitus in both ears (ringing in the ears) and I can tell you exactly how I got it. Riding my Harley way to fast with my earbuds turned up way too loud to 10 on the highways of the Western United States.

Just like many things we didn’t know that was such a bad idea because it destroyed my hearing and my ears and they ring 24/7. Trust me when I tell you that you don’t want this.

As we research products for our store and blog www.CellularSmartShop.com we found the most incredible product ever. Bone Conduction Headphones. I can’t even tell that I am wearing them and they sound to me just as good as any earbuds I have ever used.

What are Bone Conduction Headphones?

Bone conduction is the conduction of sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull. Bone conduction transmission can be used with individuals with normal or impaired hearing.

Bone conduction works with the vibration of the skull that results in auditory sensation. This is a way to somewhat bypass the outer and middle ears to stimulate the cochlea. Bone-conduction works because all of the bones of the skull are connected, including the temporal bone, which in turn stimulates the cochlea.

Critical Asset

Bone conduction is rapidly becoming a critical asset for the treatment of hearing loss. Bone conduction’s technology is helping some people with hearing loss to hear again. The innovation is in consumer electronics. In the early 2000s, headphone sets appeared that played music via the user's bones, but the systems were constrained by high cost and low quality, with common complaints about the muffled and distorted sound.

Now bone conduction has gone beyond those limitations and is an amazing technology in earphones, headsets, hearing aids, and for swimmers, underwater and deep-sea communication systems, helmets, and the military. 

Safety in Leaving The Ears Open to Outside Sounds

The bone conduction systems offer key safety advantages over regular earbuds, by leaving the user's ears free so that they can hear their surrounding environment. You can drive a vehicle while wearing them, as they conform to the legal requirement to be able to hear on the road. The Audiology Foundation of America has supported the idea, stating that it causes less damage to the ears than earbuds.

Headphones and Earbuds Ruining our Ears

A recent publication article cites from the International Journal of Audiology, stating that the authors found that a quarter of the participants in the study “were at severe risk for hearing loss because of their personal listening devices.”

The fact that these earphones use bone-conduction transducers does not inherently make them any safer than any other earphone, as the bone-conducted sound is transduced by the cochlea similarly to air-conducted sound. What is most important is that you do not play your headphones too loud.

The Bone Conduction Headphones go on the outside of your ears and rest on your cheekbones. They do not need to go in your ear canal or block your hearing.

The sample shown below is IP55 water-resistant Bone Conduction Headphones with wireless Bluetooth and CVC microphone. The headband design is comfortable, stable to wear and suitable for running, cycling, and exercise.

Bone Conduction Headphones rated sweatproof all the way to IPX8 rated waterproof and depending on the pair can be used for swimming. We believe these are the perfect addition to your music or audiobook library as that is what I use them for on a day to day basis.

These headsets work great for hearing damaged people because the sound goes directly through the bone to the Ear Canal and you can barely tell the difference. They can also help in all-around safety when jogging, working, or just cooking in the kitchen. You can hear your surroundings as well and you can listen to music and someone can say something to you and you can respond without taking your hands off of what you are doing. I can also answer my phone with the wireless phone feature. No wires to deal with which makes me very happy.

To me personally, these are wonderful. I feel more comfortable not having anything in my ear canals and I feel like my ears don’t ring like they do after I wear earbuds. So, in conclusion, it is my opinion that they are not causing damage to my ears like earbuds have in the past.

The Story of the Smartphone

The story of the Smartphone is so amazing and interesting it would be hard to make this entire narrative up. It is so intricately entwined in the ingenuity of humanity and the necessity to continue to discover and grow as a species. There is always hope!

5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits
5g Mobile Technology Long Term Benefits

What Will 5G Mean For Smartphone Owners?

The ultimate mission of cellular data has always been to be on par with Wi-Fi. 4G has come close in many ways, but let’s be honest; we know there are things we can do at home on our computers or tablets that we cannot do on our cell phones. When we are at home, we think nothing of streaming.

Depending on your internet provider and plan, if you have modern Wi-Fi, you may have no data allowance or cap, so some can go to town and binge as many Netflix shows as we like.

However, this abundance of data has not yet crossed over into our mobile lives. Many of us are on data plans, and it is always possible to use up all of our data before we know it. Streaming through our phones is one way we risk doing this, which is why most people are still relatively conservative in their mobile streaming habits, but this is becoming harder to do.

How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life
How Bone Conduction Headphones Changed A Partially Deaf Man’s Life

by John Mortensen

Before the holidays, we wrote a blog post called “How Can You Hear Something That’s Not In Your Ear?” The blog's title was inspired by my father-in-law asking me that very same question while we were on a family holiday. As a prolific writer and self-confessed workaholic, I was busy writing my latest article while listening to the Killer's latest album through my Bone Conduction headphones.

Due to Bone Conduction headphones sending the music directly into my inner ear, I was able to enjoy it while I concentrated on my work, but without shutting out my surroundings. I was on a family vacation; after all, one which included dogs and small children all running around together.

It was sensible to keep an eye (and both ears) on them just in case I was needed to do a spot of parenting. Fortunately for me, my Bone Conduction headphones allow this due to their design. Other headphones may have blocked out the sound entirely.

Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?
Do You Need to Upgrade to a 5G Phone in a Small Town?

by John Mortensen

I live in remote Alaska where there is barley 3G and don’t see us getting to 4G, let alone 5G anytime soon. For most of my life, I lived in a large city with cutting edge technology and the benefits of living with 4G.

The 5G promise is very exciting for many reasons we list below but do we need a 5G Phone in rural Alaska? The answer is no because there is no connection and if you live in a rural area the answer is more than likely the same for you.

Nome Alaska is 143 miles from the Arctic Circle and you can see Russia on a clear day from Wales which is in the Nome census area and Nort of Nome. If you measure on Google Maps Lavrentiya Russia is 179 miles from Nome Alaska.
