Two things we learnt today: there is such a thing as bone conduction technology, and it is how California-based FINIS’s Neptune music player works underwater. Traditional headphones won’t work thanks to water seeping into your ears, so bone conduction is used to transmit crystal clear audio through the cheekbone directly into the inner ear. We wonder if sound quality correlates with how much cheek(bone) you’ve got.
