Teac headphones are latest to use skeletal conductivity


We're so over the whole wireless audio thing. Even though we were frothing at the mouth over the issue only a few months ago, it seems like ancient history now. The hot new audio technology? The human body, of course.

Teac is the latest to prove that point with a new pair of headphones that uses "BCT," or "Bone-Conduction Technology," according to Akihabara News. Like other products of its kind, the Filtun/HP-F100 relies on the skull as its major conduit for soundwaves.

We have no idea how well the Teac headset works, but does this mean that we have only ourselves to blame for poor transmission? If so, that wouldn't bode well for our plans to become a human router.
