While audio technology is certainly advanced enough that it’s easy to find earplugs and headphones with great sound quality, few of us like to always have something in or in our ears. Unfortunately, the speakers on the phone and laptop have not advanced at the same speed. And even the smallest external speakers are a bit bulky to carry anywhere. So it’s nice that the HumBird Bone-Conducting speaker provides amazing sound that you can take with you anywhere.
The HumBird speaker has the smallest footprint: it is only one inch high and 1.5 inches in diameter. Still, you get true wireless stereo sound with four to five times the power of mobile phones, up to 115 dB. You can even connect two HumBird speakers for amazing surround sound.
A full charge takes just 30 minutes and will give you three hours of continuous play. Just 15 minutes of charging brings it up to 80%. So whether you’re attending online classes or listening to your favorite audiobooks and music, running out of battery power won’t be a problem.
Successfully funded by Kickstarter, the most notable feature of this unique speaker is its cutting-edge technology, which allows you to customize your audio by simply placing it on different types of surfaces. HumBird uses bone conduction to transform sound into mechanical vibrations at different frequencies, so you get different sounds as you change its location.
Buyers love their HumBird speakers. Like other proven buyers, James M. gave it a 5-star rating. He said: “Amazing technology … I bought two of them, they sound good as surround sound and have fun moving to find different sounds from different surfaces! “
