Sunday August 3, 2003: Vonia Bone Conduction Transducer headsets produce exceptional sound quality and prevent hearing loss associated with traditional audio headsets by using vibrations to transmit sound through the bones on your cheek and temples. The transducer technology will be integrated into a range of headsets and accessories for home, office, military and personal use. Described as equivalent to hearing directly using your ears, the headset is ergonomically positioned on the temple and cheek and the electromechanical transducer, which converts electric signals into mechanical vibrations, sends sound to the internal ear through the cranial bones. Normal headsets that rely on air conduction are known to cause hearing loss, especially after extended use over many years, but the use of bone conduction stimulates the auditory nerve by bypassing the eardrum, making it a far safer means of sound delivery.The headsets can also be used for on-line study, lessons, language skills and music, and according to Vonia, the new range are smaller, less complex and more efficient than existing Bone Conduction Transducers on the market.The range includes Stereo Headhones, Internet user headsets, telemarketing headsets and versions for tactical and airline use.See to learn more
