Project : Vibso Year : 2013
Vibso is a new type of headphones. It uses vibration technology to transmit sound through a transparent acrylic glass, which is the headband of the headset. Vibso headphones play tracks via Bluetooth and create sound using a vibrating electromagnet hidden in the top of the headband, beneath an opaque plastic cover. Similar to how a speaker works, the electromagnet moves a connecting element that in turn causes a membrane to pulsate. The sound is transmitted evenly across the membrane, and thus fits all heads. Being essentially plastic, it's perfeclty waterproof. Transparent Plexiglas recalls the transparency of sound.
You are bathed in music without being isolated like with normal headphones.
