Questions and answers
How does the bone conduction technology works?
Bone conduction technology transmits the sound using small vibrations sent through the cranial bone into the inner ear. Processed signals then continue to the brain. The audio transfer is set to low frequency - Threshold Sound Conditioning, which eliminates annoying facial vibration in the area of speaker positioning.
The principle of conducting sound through the bones was discovered by the renaissance scholar Girolamo Cardano in the 16th century, who was studying, among others, injuries of the auditory organ. He found out that when he tied a string to a tooth of a man with partial hearing damageand played on it, the person heard the tones. If the damage was total, he would not hear anything, and would only perceive the vibrations. The technology was later used by the army in places where soldiers needed to be perfectly protected from noise, but also the needed to communicate. Today, the technology is also used in the commercial sector and medicine. The technology allows the hearing impaired to live normal lives for many years.
