"Crane is the world's first and only bone-conducting headphones with on-bone detection sensors for auto play/pause"
Did you know that using the wrong pair of headphones can kill you? seriously, that's why even pro drivers keep their window slight open, cause you must hear the road. So many cyclists and runners are getting hit (I don't want to use a scarier word here) every year and it's almost never their fault, that's the sad part in this story.
In order to enjoy your workout you must hear the surroundings, that's a proven fact and if you've been running or riding your bike near cars you know how important it is.
Some headphones manufacturers tried audio transparency for a while (a technique that increase the background noises) but it turned out to be more dangerous as it actually mislead the rider which can result in fatal mistake.
We can't beat nature, the best hearing device to analyze the environment? our own ears, so let's use them.
The ultimate solution is to listen to music and keep your ears open, and that's exactly what's bone-conducting headphones are all about.
Short history class:
The solution appeared in the 40's actually (yes! 40's, almost 100 years ago).
In 1935 Edgar Hand was granted a patent for a special telephone equipped with a headband that attached the receiver to a user's head, so that it could transmit the vibration of a caller's voice through the bones.
In the 1940s and 1950s, numerous inventors patented hearing aids that utilized bone conduction.
In 1957, Clairdon Cunningham, an engineer for defense contractor General Dynamics, even used the principle of bone conduction to develop an ingenious communication helmet that could be worn by pilots who had to converse over the roar of jet engines.
Now you understand how powerful is bone-conducting? with the background noise of jet engines people still used it to listen to phone calls, and those were using speakers from the 50's.
20 years later James P. Liautaud was granted a patent for a device that enabled people to listen to the radio or taped music while skiing, running, bicycling or doing other active sports, without wearing headphones that might interfere with their safety.
So when the first bone-conducting devices appeared?
In 1994, another inventor, H. Werner Bottesch, took the concept a bit further and received a patent for a set of stereo music headphones designed for bone conduction. His device attached just behind the user's outer ears, so that it transmitted sound through the mastoid bones of the user's skull.
How Crane is changing the game?
While most manufacturers who sell bone-conducting headphones think that making the bone-conducting feature is enough, we decided to take it one step forward.
Imagine bone-conducting headphones with a better sound than your wired earbuds, Crane is the ultimate bone-conducting headphones powered by Qualcomm's latest CSR technology with deep bass and highest quality sound.
But we didn't stop there, we know how important the playtime is, especially when taking long rides. So to make it easier for you to stop the music and save battery, all you have to do is to take it off. Want to play the music? just wear it.
