Both CONDUIT Motion™ and CONDUIT Sports™ have Off-Ear™ listening technology.
Off-Ear™ listening sends sound waves through the bones to your inner ears. During this mode of listening, the ear canal is left entirely free, so you can hear the music and everything around you at the same time.
Our Off-Ear™ mode of listening utilizes bone conduction technology. Bone conduction is one of two mechanisms through which you can hear, the other is air conduction. Bone-conducted sounds cause the bones of the skull to vibrate, resulting in the direct vibration of fluid within the cochlea, which happens simultaneously but separately to sound waves travelling through the ear canal. This is evident when you hear your own voice. Sound travels through the air to arrive at your ears, but you also hear the sound transmitted through the bones of the skull to the cochlea. This results in the difference of the sound quality when you speak compared to hearing a recording of your own voice.
No, not at all! Listening to music through Off-Ear™ technology is actually safer than using traditional earphones, as it doesn’t damage the ear canal when played at high volume. It has a range of other applications in both the medical and military industries.
