Conduction headphones use the same technology used for hearing aids. Instead of playing music directly into your ear, it sends vibrations through your bones, so you can jam to your tunes and hear other people at the gym or keep your spatial awareness while you walk in the city.
These headphones have a six-hour battery life and an IPX6 water-resistant rating. This means you should be able to jog in the rain or break a sweat without it becoming a problem. Just avoid totally immersing them in water — you’ll have to pause the music if you’re going for a swim.
Ear conduction headphones sit a little differently than regular headphones. Instead of covering your ear, they go around it, and it might take a little getting used to. These have a soft matte coating to improve comfort, so you can wear them longer.
Whether you’re powering through your routine at the gym or just trying to get through the workday, a little music can go a long way — especially if listening to it doesn’t mean you miss everything else.
