PROS

  • These bone conduction headphones let you listen to music from your Bluetooth device and noises from the surrounding environment at the same time.
  • By means of a built-in mic and call-accept button, Headbones can be used as a hands-free headset.
  • Headbones is both sweat- and water-resistant, carrying an IPX5 rating.

CONS

  • Like other bone conduction headphones, Headbones leaks sound.
  • Although these headphones are lightweight, you might notice some clamping after a couple of hours.
  • Users have reported build issues ranging from failing batteries to breaking hinges.
Like other bone conduction headphones, this sporty-looking Bluetooth gadget rides on the bones in front of your ear, using built-in amps to transmit music through your skull. As with others in the category, audio quality is not Headbones' strong suit. The midrange tends to be muddy, and you may feel a buzzing sensation when the bass kicks in. However, some aspects of Damson's design are innovative. The headphones contain a 3.5 mm plug-in jack for use with earbuds; it converts just about any earbuds to Bluetooth headphones--handy when you want to focus on your music and not the ambient sound. Damson includes a pair of earbuds that can be plugged in whenever sound isolation is desired.

It was just too dangerous using conventional headphones on the road so this new product is just perfect for my needs. I was a bit skeptical to be honest about the sound quality before I tried them but I knew the safety aspect would outweigh a slight loss of audio quality. I am pleasantly surprised though; the tunes sound just as good as the in ear buds I used before and the bluetooth connectivity is ideal.

The Damson Headbones let you hear what’s going on around you while listening to music, and are much better at coping with a lot of ambient noise than normal open headphones. Your music and the outside world just don't compete as they do with normal headphones. Instead, they sound quite separate.

Though headphones that use bone conduction technology to transmit sounds through the cheek bones to the inner ear are not exactly new, a trip to the personal audio section of your local electronics store will confirm that they haven't really jumped into the mainstream. Having taken Maxell's Vibrabone earphones and the Cynaps hat for test drives, we can see why the technology might not appeal to folks who love the full fat sonic experience which cans that throw sounds down your ear canal can deliver. The UK's Damson Audio is looking to change that with the development of the stylish Bluetooth-enabled Headbones...

We found the Headbones lovely and comfortable to wear and the Flexi-fit adjustable strap makes them easy to customise to your head. The main part with the controls sits on the back of your neck, while the ear pieces go over the top of your ear to allow the pads to rest on the top of your jaw bone

The audio engineers at Damson aren’t afraid to play around with new technology. The last piece we reviewed from Damson, the Twist, was a small Bluetooth speaker that used Navy-patented tech called Incisor Diffusion to vibrate surfaces, essentially turning flat surfaces into speakers for better bass response. For its new Kickstarter project, Headbones, Damson is again employing vibration technology, only this time it’s your skull — not a table — that makes the system work.

What makes the Damson Headbones a product to check out is you can take calls on it, listen to music and even listen to what’s going around you and not miss anything. Also bone conduction is supposed to be better than using your ears and can combat future hearing loss.
