🎧 We are reviewing the BT – DK Bone Conduction Bluetooth Sports Earphone.

Bone conduction headphones are well featured devices for music, video, audio/podcast listening while doing activities that require awareness of your environment. For example, many sports need some degree of understanding of your surroundings, for security reasons (like cyclists, runners and even weight lifters). Another practical use for bone conduction headphones are traveling situations, like airports (while waiting for your flight and needing to hear the announcements), etc.
Why is this? Well, bone conduction headphones are not worn on the ears (nor inside), instead they are placed over the bone structure. By having this design they offer the capability of music/audio listening and a non noise-blocking/isolation from your environment.
Another benefit of bone conduction earphones is the avoidance of a tympanic membrane damage as the sound is not transmitted through the ear canal and eardrum but through the ear bone.

The wearing style of the BT-DK Bone Conduction Earphone combined with the gentle pressure provided by the structure and the rubberized neckband makes them very comfortable to wear with nearly zero risks of any discomfort at any given time.
This rubberized finish on the neckband assures a solid fit that will hold in place while practicing sports (if it touches your back neck).

We find that bone conduction headphones have a specific public that can benefit or find them useful, like: sports practicing people where awareness is requested or wanted, people concerned about in-ear health and whoever wants/needs high levels of awareness. We could even see them in modern office work environments allowing office workers to listen to music while remaining aware of the office sounds, companions interaction and without disturbing them, as it would happen if each one would be listening to music with a speaker.
You should not think of them as normal headphones or earphones (nor expect similar noise quality), you could think of them as a music companion for your activities but, contrary to normal headphones, where awareness and/or “hearability” of your environment is more important than the music being listened to. Sound feels like being implanted more directly into your brain and, by design, mids tend to be boxy and distant, highs dark and bass shallow and dry.
Sound quality shows extreme variation in balance and style depending on which part of the bone structure area you are placing them (each head’s morphology is different), the closer to the ear canal the clearer the sound becomes. If you “misplace” them and wear them on top of your ears you will get clearer sound and a sort of on-ear headphone style.
