safe2arphone
safe2arphone

safe2arphone is composed of two parts: earphone(ring) and Bluetooth.
Using any portable music player, you can enjoy music anytime, anywhere without any extra toolkit. The earphone (ring) is a bone conduction type which allows listening music through vibration of facial bone (cranial bone) which is transmitted to the brain via the auditory nerves.
Also, the ring-shaped earphone is easy to wear quickly and allows you hearing any outside sound
while listening to music for the safe bicycle riding.
Neck cord connected to the earphone is made of side glow optical fiber which will be lighted at night for the sake of safety.
