What is bone conduction?
Because bone conduction earbuds don't enter your ear canal but rest on your cheekbones, you can still hear a lot of ambient noise. This way, you can safely participate in traffic without being completely closed off from your environment. In addition, the earbuds are also ideal for sports, thanks to the waterproof design. They won't get damaged by sweat or rain.
The sound quality of bone conduction earbuds is lower than that of regular earbuds and headphones. The bass especially doesn't sound as good on bone conduction earbuds. In addition, it's not always nice to hear everything in your environment, because this means you're less focused on your music or podcast. It's also easier for the people around you to hear what you're listening to.
