CCG writes - "I remember when the first bone conduction headphones first came out a few years ago. They created quite the buzz (no pun intended - okay I lied) about a new means to listen to music - rather than from speakers or headphones that go on or in your ears, the sound could instead travel through your body itself and reach your eardrums that way. It's an interesting concept, with several potential advantages. In my case, this new M1 from Mionbel is my first exposure to this technology, so I can't compare them to other headphones that use similar tech. What I can do is tell you about these, and how they compare to other types I've heard."
