CES 2013: Panasonic Debuts Bone-Conducting Headphones

Panasonic unveils a new technology at this year’s CES

This isn’t the first time we’re hearing about bone-conducting headphones, but Panasonic now seems ready to bring such a technology into mass production.

The company unveiled at the 2013 CES show in Las Vegas its very own pair of headphones using a bone-conducting system which not only that look futuristic, but they also seem to be pretty comfortable.

The headphones rely on Bluetooth technology and use an AAA battery, but Panasonic claims that a rechargeable version may be released in the near future, according to Engadget.

There’s nothing too complicated about this kind of technology, as the headphones must be clipped onto the back of your ears to be able to transmit the received sound through the skin and cartilage directly to the ears.

Panasonic hasn’t said anything about pricing, but the headphones won’t be too expensive when they go on sale later this year.
