If you have worn a pair of eyewear with Bluetooth headset, you will know the inconvenience that follows. Well, not if that piece of eyewear is also your Bluetooth headset and we are not talking about any headset that will “inconvenience” your ears, it is one that uses Bone Conduction technology, which basically does away with earpiece. Such is what the Atellani SG05 Bluetooth Bone Conduction Sunglasses by Buhel is about. Officially called SOUNDglasses, this pair of eyewear offers you handsfree communication by sending audio or music in the form of vibration directly to your temple area. In this way, it negates the need for earpiece which could be cumbersome at some point (especially with a pair of sunglasses) and since nothing is stuck to your ears, you have higher level of awareness, and therefore improved in the safety aspect. And that’s not to mention that by using vibration, there’s no ambience noise to worry about.
