I heard about these headphones from Sony a while back and it got me rather excited, until I saw the price tag:
They are described as follows:
The Xperia Ear Duo offers a new listening experience while staying connected to the world. You can enjoy music, make calls, listen to your schedule, forecasts and more, all while being able to hear your surroundings.
Now, I think this is great. I have tried bone conduction headsets which I find annoying and ineffective. I'm really hoping that this is the way that headphones are headed as, for us blind folk, we want to stay connected but not at the cost of knowing what is around us.
I was wondering about other peoples experiences and opinions ...
Do you think that bone conduction is the way forward? Can you see such features being useful? Have you had any bad experiences that such headphones might have avoided? What other brands have you heard of that do something similar?
Please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
