Using bone conduction to transmit audio into your ears is not new but it has not been common when talking about computer headphones.   It is something more advantageous for young ears which have yet to be damaged by years of listen to loud music, but even those looking at the top of the hill could use all the help we can get.  Vidonn's F1 were investigated by PC Review recently, which you can check out right here.  The headphones performed as expected, allowing you to hear your audio as well as everything around you, at the cost of sound quality.  If you are interested in the idea but don't have to worry about your surroundings then grab some earplugs as using them in conjunction with the conduction does offer improved audio quality.

Finally a replacement for my old Bone Fone from the '80s. I loved using it on the slopes where I could listen to music and hear the screams of people skiing out of control on the Black diamond slopes.
