Since our launch of the kBone Bone Conduction headphones later this year, people all over the country and across the globe have been asking us, what exactly is bone conduction technology, and what benefits does it provide?
Since you're one of loyal friends, we wanted to share more information about this technology with you. So over the next few weeks, we'll be giving you more information about this amazing technology.
Although bone conduction technology is little-known today, it isn't new.
Many know that German composer and pianist Ludwig Van Beethoven began to lose his hearing early in life. In fact, by his late 20s his hearing began to deteriorate. And by the last decade of his life he was almost totally deaf.
But hearing loss didn't stop Beethoven from creating beautiful music. In fact, in 1811 he gave up conducting and performing in public but continued to compose. It turns out that many of his most admired works come from these last 15 years of his life.
As it turns out, Beethoven overcame deafness by biting a metal rod attached to his piano to hear his work. Yes, it's true: in the early 1800s, Beethoven was using this amazing technology, bone conduction, to hear his music.
