Summer is upon us and you know what means. It means, beaches, sunglasses, and awesome music. While I can give you the beaches, I can tell you where you can get the sunglasses that looks and sounds awesome. Yes. I said looks and sounds, because Seesun B:Con is a pair of sunglasses with integrated headphones and not just any headphones.
It is bone conduction Bluetooth headphones. Apparently, it is not the first, but Seesun B:Con promised to take “bone conduction wearable technology to the next level.” The earphone itself is adjustable. By locking it in at any of the three preset positions will result in different volume. Strange that it has just three level of audio level.
Anyways, it uses bone conduction which means, your sound holes are free to hear, so you’d be wary of your surrounding and therefore, safer. Bluetooth technology is used to connect your media source to the sunglasses/headphones hybrid and the sunglasses itself boasts UV400 and TAC polarized lens for ultimate clarity. Perfect for beach goers, hunters, anglers.. basically everything that you wish to do that you want the sun to stay out of your eyes and still be able to see with extreme clarity, while enjoy your favorite tunes and having the ability to take calls hands-free.
It uses Bluetooth 4.1 + EDR for audio streaming which offers up to 33 feet (10 meters) of range, and supports A2DP 1.3, HFP 1.6, HSP 1.2, AVRCP 1.5 Bluetooth profiles. Seesun B:Con Earphone Sunglasses comes with a 200 mAh lithium polymer battery that’s good for up to 10 hours of yakking, or up to 7 hours of playback, or up to 120 hours of standby. With those electronics packed in, it is still surprisingly lightweight at 45g (1.6 ounces).
If you are enamored by Seesun B:Con Earphone Sunglasses, you may want to consider supporting its endeavor on Kickstarter. The campaign is not funded yet, but you can help by making a pledge for a unit for 99-135 bucks. After which, you should keep your fingers crossed that it gets funded in the next 25 days or so.
