You might have used a earphone or a headphone but this one the Signet BT bone conduction headphone is a lot different. Check this review to know how good is this headphone using a different technology and how different it is from the rest.
Signet BT bone conduction headphone makes use of bone conduction technology that conducts sound to inner ear though the bones of the skull. So technically you are not wearing anything inside or over your ear, you need to wear the headphone like you would normally do but the transducers need to fit slightly in front of your ear (check image below).
This technology creates mini vibrations and they pass though the cheekbones and directly to your inner ear and since the outer ear is not used it will not cause any problem and specially not harm the ear drum.
As far as the quality is concerned it is really good, stereo, good bass but since your ear is open it might sound a little weird when you are outdoors in noisy or slightly noisy environments – just like a radio in front of you but only you can listen to it.
Signet BT bone conduction headphone is light weight and very comfortable to use. It does come with built in mic and using DSP noise cancelling for clear voice communication.
