Sound Leaf Plus is the new flag bearer to be included in the ever-growing battalions of bone-conduction devices. The tiny Bluetooth device weighs just 45g and uses two AAA size batteries to give you about 15 hours of undiluted wireless experience using bone conduction technology.
The latest wireless headset from NTT DoCoMo is the first ever to have combined the advantages of Bluetooth and bone-conduction. For all those who are still biting their nails, let me brief you that bone-conduction technology transmits sound signals directly to your inner ears through the bones of your skull using an electromechanical transducer. This eliminates the need to attach the headset to your external ears and results in crystal clear sound even in loud environments.
The device is a pretty example of mankind’s continuous effort to tame the whirlwind of technology. It costs $115 and is expected to be released in Japan by next February.
