Bone conduction is considered the middle path for listening to music when exercising. It allows for audio enjoyment while remaining aware of the environment. Well, that’s until now because, there is a new kind of audio hardware in town and it is called RUN-UP.

RUN-UP Audio Headband

RUN-UP is an audio headband. It is a new open-ear audio that offers awareness like bone conduction, but thanks to the large 16 mm driver and Bass Port Hole, it does so with deep bass and more audio details.

With RUN-Up, you can also take/make phone calls and access voice assistance too. And it, of course, does it all without plugging anything into your ears, or cupping on or over your sound holes.

Moreover, because it is a headband, it can also help to keep sweat from water falling all over your face and also keep your bangs up.

How it works, according to the details posted on Indiegogo, is RUN-UP has a “physical structure” referred to as “Sound Highway.” This so called “Sound Highway” converts regular sound into “Direct Soundwaves” which is then directed to your ears.

This allows audio enjoyment with minimal sound leakage associated with open-ear headphones. Those around you probably can’t hear what you are listening too, but I suspect they could in an extremely quiet environment. Though I am not 100% sure.
