Damson Headbones: Bone Conduction Headphones to Rock Your Brain Box

I seem to remember there being some bone conduction headphones on the market a few years back, but these are the first that I’ve come across in a while. These headphones look like an interesting middle ground between headphones and earphones.

Apparently, anything that’s made out of wood is good. This is also true of Tokyoflash’s new watch, which appears to be encased completely in wood. It’s all rustic, and ready to go camping!
