The ‘Batband’ by studio banana things is a piece of sound technology that allows users to listen to their private soundscape as well as the world that surrounds them. The human centered design meets technology delivering a high fidelity acoustic experience via an innovative bone conduction system.

The bone conduction consists of transducers that emit sound waves perceived by the inner ear, thus freeing the outer ear to outside noise. sound waves are transmitted at a frequency that can be conducted through the bones of the skull. The ears remain free, therefor users get to hear twice as much, without compromising on comfort, quality or style.

The ‘Batband’ goes around the head, which pairs through bluetooth. touch sensing controls on the side let users listen to their favorite tunes, and discreetly make and take calls at the same time. Its outer frame is made of spring steel ensuring a good grip around the back and the inner padded lining guarantees maximum comfort and minimum sound escape.

The team at studio banana things has already perfected the prototypes, and are now looking for funding on kickstarter to help with manufacturing. studio banana things ‘batband’ plans to be shipped in April 2016.
