Vibe Body Sound bone conduction headphones

Christina Crouch - Jan 31, 2008

I don’t get the big deal over headphones, earbuds or what-have-you. I’m not a music connoisseur or anything so sound quality is not as important to me as comfort and getting to listen to my music. I also don’t get the people dying because they don’t turn their music down while walking down busy roads or train tracks. The Vibe Body Sound headphones appear to be comfortable and will reduce death.

So, they clip on to your outer ear and work by vibrations through your skin and cartilage. It’s basically listening to music through your skull and that’s always fun! There’s three volume levels, the standard low and medium and of course the “defeats it’s purpose” tectonic.

You can get your own for $100 from ThinkGeek. Even though I’m happy with my cheap earbuds, I’d be interested in a pair of these.
