Aftershokz

Instead of pumping sound waves into your ear canals, Aftershokz headphones sit outside your ears and use bone conduction technology—think mini vibrations—to deliver music and podcasts to your inner ears, like a tiny band drumming on your cheekbones. The result is premium sound without sacrificing the safety that comes with hearing your surroundings.

What is Bone Conduction?

Bone conduction is the transmission of sound vibrations to the inner ear (cochlea) bones of the skull, which allows you to perceive sound without blocking the ear canal. Even more simply put: it’s sound that is delivered directly to the inner ear without needing to pass through the eardrum. Think of bone conduction as a shortcut to hearing sound.

Here’s how AfterShokz harnessed bone conduction technology to work for their products:

1. Audio Enters The Transducer

Every AfterShokz audio device features two transducers on either side. These transducers, positioned near the cheekbone, work to convert audio signals into mechanical energy (vibrations) which is then sent to your cheekbones.

2. Titanium Makes Conduction Seamless

The use of titanium in the frame of all AfterShokz products is not only because of its lightweight and flexible properties, but also because titanium is an ideal metal for properly and efficiently conducting sound waves.

3. Vibrations Are Converted Into Audible Sound

Advances in bone conduction technology have enabled AfterShokz to create devices that minimize the sensation of vibrations on the temple while still retaining high-quality sound.
