Orange Amps has announced the arrival of the O Bones – a set of wireless headphones that transmit audio waves by vibrating your face bones.

Traditionally, headphones essentially act like mini-speakers, pushing air to create sound waves, which transmit into your ears. In contrast, the O Bones use “bone conduction” technology and are positioned to sit on the facial bones in front of your ears. They then use vibrations to send audio waves to your ears along the bones.
