Are bone conduction headphones good enough yet?
Sound is a vibration and the more you think about that fact the weirder it gets. It means that everything you've ever heard in your life started off as a movement in the physical world. Something hit or scraped or brushed against something else, and that made the air around it wobble. That wobbly air moved as a sound wave — a pattern of alternating low and high air pressure — and bounced off buildings, trees, loved ones, etc., until it careened into your ear and jangled a tiny trio of bones that live in your head. These vibrations were converted to electric impulses, sent to your brain, and hey presto: you heard.It's complicated as hell, and like the man said in the infomercial: isn't there a better way?
