Audiophiles might have heard of bone conduction. It’s used in speakers that can conduct sound by subtle vibrations in the bones of the skull, rather than pumping it directly into the ear canal. As you might expect, it has been a hit with those who like their music on the go and their ears free.
Now, Duramobi has taken that tech a step further with their new
HumBird speaker. It uses that same technology to pulse mechanic vibration through hollow materials, turning most any household surface into a high-quality speaker. That includes tables, nightstands, cabinets and anyplace you might normally place a speaker. Better yet, the HumBird is small enough to be placed onto a bike helmet with its suction cup or adhesive, making it the only speaker you can use for both household and personal audio. You can listen to music through your Bluetooth-enabled devices at up to 115 dB, and a second HumBird will automatically sync up to deliver stereo sound.
