VocalSkull Glasses and Headphones - Questions Answered

VocalSkull Glasses and Headphones - Questions Answered

Recently we've received a great many questions concerning our products. Today we are here to answer all these questions once and for all.


Why can I still hear music after taking off the headphone?

The vibration of the bone conduction also transmits through the outer shell of the headphone. The shell has two planes perpendicular to the vibration direction and thus could effectively provide vibration energy transmission.The silicone side of the vibrator is tightly put to the cheekbones, making the conduction possible while the other side is exposed in the air,pushing the air and forming resonance, which is what we call a sound leakage. Sound leakage is very little at moderate or low volume. In fact most of the headphones on the market have different degrees of sound leakage at high volume. VocalSkull has already reduced a large percent of the leakage with the latest technology. One way to tell whether your headphone is bone conduction transmitting or not is by put your fingers in your ears to stop air condution. If you could still hear the sound of your headset clearly, it’s bone condution.


Will the headset fall off if I wear it when exercising?

The VocalSkull Beyond 5 open ear headphone adpots brand new industrial design, distributing the total weight equally to the whole body of the headset and perfectly fitting the head shape.Therefore it prvides solid reliability and comfort.


What is it that's so special about VocalSkull bone conduction headphones and sunglasses?

Safety: VocalSkull headphones and sunglasses deliver sound to you with your ears open. You will be fully aware of the surrounding environment while engaging in outdoor activities such as running, climbing and cycling, thus enhance safety.
Health: The usual in-ear headsets are plugged into your ear canal, which is highly likely to form a humid, enclosed environment becoming a breeding ground for bacteria and consequently causing otology diseases. With VocalSkull technology the sound wave does not go through ear canal and eardrum and for this reason ears will stay nice and clean.
Comfort: Thanks to the open ear design, there won’t be any discomfort after extended wearing time.
Water resistance: Both the headset and sunglasses are IP67 certificated. With the new water resistance design, common raining and sweating could easily be handled.


Will bone conduction vibration jeopardize my teeth and bones?

Not at all. Bone conduction headphones have been used for more than a decade in military and medical fields. The sound we hear when brushing our teeth and eating are also bone conducted. The same thing also happens as when we are talking.


What's bone conduction's sound quality like comparing to traditional headphones?

Due to the transmitting differences, bone conduction is not able to form the same enhanced sound resonance within ear canal. We’ve also sacrificed some sound quality for better comfort by reducing low frequency vibration. However, among all the bone conduction products ours are still one of the best.
