Further details of the products are elaborated below.
Well Ring is a sound amplifier of bone conduction technology for the deaf and those who suffer from some hearing issues. What makes Well Ring attractive is that the device negates the possible pain and injuries of tympanic membrane, that may be caused by the usage of traditional hearing aids. Thanks to its bone conduction feature, Well Ring transmits sound directly into the bones of the ears. This means that there is no need to plug the device right into the ears as it is with the present hearing aids.
HCT-504 is a wired hands-free headset on bone conduction. The headset is to be attached to the temple rather than wearing on ears. It is an exclusive solution both to listen to music and to attend phone calls. If you receive a call while listening to music, you just need to press a button to change the mode. After speaking to the caller, you can simply come back to the music mode with another click. The device is compatible with Apple iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S 2 and all LG smartphones.
Earbone is another bone conduction communication device from the company. It is a wireless headset. Users can listen to music lavishly using the Earbone. Since the headset works on bone conduction, there is no damage to the ears even if you listen to music for long hours. In addition, the wireless headset has a multi-pairing functionality. That means you can pair the device with up to 5 devices including phones, MP3 players, tablets and laptops.
