AfterShockz has this week unveiled a new line of headphones in the form of the AfterShockz Wireless Bone-Conduction Bluez headphones, that it will showcase at the CES exhibition next week.
Unlike conventional Bluetooth headphones the Bone-Conduction earbuds use patent pending bone conduction technology to deliver sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ear. Enabling users to make calls and listen to audio whilst still being able to hear the outside world.
The AfterShockz Wireless Bone-Conduction Bluez headphones have been designed to provide users with open ear bone conduction technology combined with Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
“AfterShokz Bluez have already garnered significant attention even prior to consumer availability, earning a prestigious CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award in the headphones category, as well as being named one of the 25 semifinalists in the 2013 Last Gadget Standing competition, an annual program designed to highlight revolutionary tech at the International CES.“
The new AfterShockz Wireless Bone-Conduction Bluez Headphones are now available in the US and Canada for $120. Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet.
