Bone conduction headphones originate from the hearing industry and have been in use for some time. More recently, they have become more easily available and cheaper and can be a good coping product as a misophonia headphone.
Bone conduction headphones are in contact with a wearer’s cheekbones and transfer sound through vibrations. The eardrum and ear canal are left open which allows the user to be aware of their surrounding, so one can have a conversation or hear oncoming traffic. They can be particularly useful for misophonia sufferers because they could provide white noise or brown noise to drown out some low level triggers, but still allow for conversations. For those who have to use earbuds a lot, getting a break from them is also a plus if bone conduction headphones are used as a complimentary and occasional coping strategy.
