Earbuds and headphones are great tools for listening to music, but what if you could jam out to your favorite beats “ears-free”? Sounds a bit like science fiction, right? Thanks to a concept called bone conduction, Studio Banana Things has designed a product that will allow you to listen to music ears-free.
Developed during the 1970s, bone conduction technology is a method of audio transmission that funnels sound waves to the inner ear via bones in the skull. Historically, hearing aid implants have relied heavily on this technique; however, more recently headphone manufacturers have begun to realize its potential for improving the auditory experience.
With traditional headphones, the user is cut-off from their surroundings, which has both perks and pitfalls. The newly designed Batband lets you hear the music in your head while leaving your ears uncovered. If you like your music but want to hear what’s going on around you too, the Batband may be for you. Three transducers within the device target your temporal and occipital bones, delivering what the company calls “a hi-fidelity bone-conduction sound experience.”
The headset is linked via bluetooth to a computer or mobile device and is powered by a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, allowing the user to enjoy six hours of audio streaming. The device also features a built-in microphone for two-way communication for phone calls or even gaming purposes.
The Batband is available for pre-order on the Studio Banana Thing’s website and will cost you £95 ($149 US). If you’re into the perks that come along with crowdsourcing, check out their Kickstarter campaign. So far the company has raised $95,000 out of their $150,000 goal and still have 44 days to go.

Good News [May 08, 2015]: IDM developers got smarter, but the crackers are always a step ahead. Follow this article and send an email to [email protected] if you are desperate. I can NOT post any crack here for legal reasons. Happy Downloading with IDM. ;) *********** first tip is to use latest crack for idm from idm universal web crack and make sure u are using all latest vers I am sure many of us are too much dependent on Internet Download Manager a.k.a.
