Open-Ear Bone Conduction Headphones Review
So check out these headphones, they are called Open-Ear Bone Conduction Headphones from Panasonic. They run about $50-60.00 depending on the color. I decided I wanted pink. Pink and purple. I decided early on that I was not going to share.
I like to listen to music when I am here working on the computer. But, I like to hear what is going on around the house. Especially when I am watching the babies for my daughter while she is at work. Or, teaching the boys their school things. I have to be able to hear. I hate just having one headphone in the ear. I also hate having to keep taking it out every 3 minutes.
If you are a mom, you know what I am talking about.
The Open-Ear Conduction Headphones from Panasonic are great that I can hear the ambient sounds around me. I am can listen to tunes while I am listening to the teens argue.
Never-mind, I throw on the other headphones for that one.
Seriously. There are something you just do not want to listen too. That is one of them.
Anyways, I like these headphones because they do what they are designed to do.
That said, I do not like that I have to have the volume almost all the way up in order to hear anything. I want to hear the music.
Now, these Panasonic Open-Ear Conduction Headphones are perfect for the runner in your family. Or maybe the cyclist. Or even just the walker.
I have plans on getting an arm band holder for my phone and take these out to walk, as well as work out here at home. They will hold up to the rain, and sweat. At least on me, they are not going to slide around either.
They are also great for those teens that never hear you because their headphones are in their ears…. No excuses now with these babies.
These headphones are pretty comfortable. That said, I am a larger person. So, they are probably a bit tighter on my head than they would be on someone that is not as big. But they are not terrible.
My 13 year old son tried them out, and he did not like them. He thought they were uncomfortable. But take that with a grain of salt. He has ear issues. He has had surgery and he has a problem with hearing low-tones.
I like them, and I will continue to use them on a daily basis.
So check out this video, it gives you a great idea of why you would want a pair.
I am confident in saying that these are great. If I did not have to turn the volume as high as I do to hear from them depending on the device… I would give 5 stars. Right now, I give 4 stars. If they come out with a different pair and I get to review them, I will let you know!
