The Campus Bookstore has stocked a variety of styles of “bone conduction” headphones from AfterShokz, and curious consumers can try out a pair.
The patented technology bypasses the eardrums completely, transmitting audio waves through the skull.
“They sit on your cheek and sound incredible,” says marketing co-ordinator Martin Deck. “And because you can still hear ambient noise, you are aware and alert while you enjoy your music.”
Prices range from $69.95 to $169.95; the Campus Bookstore has a demo unit for shoppers to check out the quality of the experience.
