Damson breaks new ground in headphones with ‘Headbones’
British audio company Damson says has taken another audio advancement that moves beyond convention and intensifies music’s unique ability to be heard and felt, with Headbones™, the company’s first offering in the wireless headphone category.
In a market dominated by in-ear and over-the-ear products, patent-pending Headbones™ have a radically new design in which the speaker sits on the temporal bone, just behind or in front of the ear, and utilises the acoustic properties of the human skull and its natural ability to work in tandem with the inner ear.
Headbones™ take advantage of Damson’s exclusive Incisorfullskip.com Diffusion Technology™ (IDT), which is also found on the company’s popular Twist and Jet wireless speakers. IDT avoids the use of a traditional cone speaker by replacing the magnetic coil with teeth (or incisors), allowing the sound to radiate through the surface the speaker is placed on. The technology also offers benefits for those with impaired hearing.
For consumers preferring a completely immersive audio experience, Damson Headbones™ also have removable, traditional in-ear buds that work in tandem with the IDT vibrations to create a “perfect” audio experience.
The product is compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled device such as a ISC CISSP exam smartphone or tablet and users can expect up to eight hours of music listening from a single charge. When not in use, Headbones™ can be charged via a Micro USB.
One version of the product has the speaker sitting in front of the ear, while another more discreet version rests the speaker just behind the ear.
More information on Damson’s Headbones™ headphones, which debuted at International CES 2014, including price and retail availability will be released closer to the launch of the product.
