Sound Band: Headphones Without Speakers

Sound Band: Headphones Without Speakers

Are you tired of your ear buds?  Tired of putting them in and taking them out?  Tired of removing one (or both) of your ear buds so you can interact with someone or something in the real world?  Or are you simply tired of that constant aching feeling associated with ear buds jammed in your ears?

With the new Sound Band forgot all those worries. The Sound Band doesn't feature any speakers at all. Instead, it uses surface sound technology, which means the user's ears are left open to take in the sounds around them.

Sound Band uses surface sound technology

Basically, the headphones send tiny vibrations through the back of the ear, bones and tissues to land on your inner ear without blocking your ear canals. Additionally, this method of transmitting sound makes the headphones silent to others, so users can listen as loud as they want without interfering in the lives of others.

The video (below- first one) provides a demonstration of the Sound Band.

The headset is wireless, connecting to smartphones through Bluetooth. Besides listening to music, the Sound Band also comes with dual omnidirectional microphones, so users can make calls. The device delivers an impressive range of sound that spans from 20,000 Hz to 86 Hz and lasts for about five hours. As you might expect, they additionally feature noise reduction and echo cancellation technology to help create clearer sound for the person on the other end.

The back of the band features buttons designed to perform various functions. Users can answer a call, power the device on and off, adjust the volume, and so on. The buttons are located behind the head, which means that users will have to grow accustomed to the feel of the buttons to use them.

Hybra Advance Technology, the company responsible for the Sound Band, is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The Sound Band team had raised more than $200,000, blowing past its $175,000 goal. For buyers interested in owning a Sound Band of their own, a pledge of $135 is required.
