Published Sep 15, 2015Are you the kind of person who wishes you could listen to music on the go, but constantly need access to your ears? Maybe you can't go anywhere without constant Q-Tip cleansing, or maybe you just hate jamming them into your ears. Now there are the headphones just for you.
The Batband recently reached its goal on Kickstarter, meaning it will soon exist to play music while keeping your ear holes free of obstruction.
The headphones work through the definitely fake-sounding process of "bone conduction." As the product page reads, "Sound waves are transmitted at a frequency that can be conducted through the bones of the skull. Your ears remain free, therefore you get to hear twice as much, without compromising on comfort, quality or style."
The Batband pairs with your audio listening device wirelessly, and rests on the top of your head like a high-tech Julius Caesar crown. Just think of all the things you can now stick in your ears!
One standard Batband will run you $149, though you can also pre-buy 10 of them for $1,300. Not only is that a decent savings, but it also might be worth seeing what happens if you connect 10 pairs to your bones at once.
The Batband is still in the prototype stage. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
