Puro Sound Labs PuroFree Bone Conduction Headphones
Unlike most other headphones, Bone conduction headphones transmit sound waves through the bones in your skull rather than through the air like traditional headphones. Sitting on your cheekbones or temples, they use vibrations to create a sound that travels directly to your inner ear.
The benefits of using bone conduction headphones range from listening to music or taking calls while still being able to hear your surroundings. They’re more comfortable for people who experience discomfort or pain when wearing traditional headphones. This is because bone conduction headphones don’t need to be inserted into your ears, which can cause pressure or discomfort over time.
Travellers with hearing loss or certain types of hearing aids could see additional benefits in using bone conduction headphones such as the PuroFree, as they can listen to music without having to remove their hearing aids or worry about interference.
Features //PuroFree Bone Conduction Headphones
The PuroFree Bone Conduction Headphones are worn as a headband, running along the hairline at the top neck, loop over the ears and deliver two plates on top of the cheekbones just in front of the ears.
As with most normal headphones, these also have an adjustable band made from smooth silicone to ensure a comfortable and secure fit for every head size. Puro Sound Labs says the PuroFree are comfortable to be worn all day without discomfort.
And, with a 108mAh battery built into this tiny frame capable of delivering 6 hours of playback and 10 hours of standby time along with the open ear design, there is every possibility they could be kept on throughout the day. A full charge will only take around 2 hours using the bespoke magnetic charging plate that ships with the headphones.
The most significant selling point (or reason not to buy them, for some travellers) is the open-ear design. Most frequent travellers will swear by their Noise Cancelling over-ear headphones, and rightly so.
Bone Conduction headphones are not for everyone who enjoys music on the go, but they have their place.
If you want the best of listening to music but need to stay connected to your surroundings or maybe wear a hearing aid, then PuroFree is a good alternative. The listening experience will differ but with an enhanced bass experience and a 20-20,000Hz frequency range to match most other headphones.
There’s even the latest Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, and the PuroFree headphones come with an IPX5 waterproof rating which means they are safe from sweat and rain and likely to be ok by the pool or on the beach; don’t submerge them.
Puro Sound Labs offers an alternative way to consume music to travellers at a reasonable $129 price point.
