Bone conduction headphones?

I just recently learned that this is a thing that exists. I've had a couple audiology tests that use these weird headphones with firm rubber balls where normally expect to see the speakers; the rubber balls sit on your temporal bone, and there's a metal bar the wraps around your head connecting them and giving them pressure to...

I am an evangelist for these. I have a set of the aftershokz and I wear them like a watch, always on my head. I do a lot of work in different kinds of factories, forges, power plants, etc which are all places earplugs are required. No big deal with bone conducting headphones, I can listen to my podcasts while I work. A bonus too is the kind I ended up with can connect to two phones, so my work phone and personal phone don't need two different headsets. The only downside is when I have to take a flight somwhere they aren't really loud enough to fight the sound of the plane so you have to wear earplugs. But the upshot is people generally leave you alone if yer wearing earplugs which is nice. I grab handfuls of them from our customers anyways so it's double not a big deal.

This has been a plainly difficult production.

I never had trouble using these other than the few times it burned the fuck out of my fingertips for some reason.

Are we all forgetting that Boeing most likely had a witness testifying them executed in a parking lot a few weeks ago?

Mothership is a fuckin dope ass bar and anyone who has a chance should stop there before seeing a show at cactus club down the road.

We should have finished those Nukes that were proposed and then canceled post TMI. It would have been easier at this point to phase out the fossil and phase in the renewable without fucking the baseload.

I'm on your side, but comments like these are nonsense and help nobody.

Is it possible to get these pi's for that price now though? Because I member 2 years ago looking at paying rediculous scalper pricing for a pi to run octoprint on, and by the grace of my brother having a spare one was able to avoid spending 150 bucks on scalper bullshit.

Oh shit thanks for the tip 🤔

Wake me up when more than 4 or 5 actually do.

Shit, does anyone remember battery power tools from 20 years ago? 5 screws in and they start to die. Now Milwaukee tool itself is essentially an industrial battery pack manufacturer.

How many times do I have to see this fuckin "chained to a chair" bullshit copy pasted around here 😂

They completely whiffed on the most important and obvious part. That whole article could be replaced by the words "THEY'RE TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE".

Ahh yes, Big Bend, the tiny town where businesses fly "FUCK JOE BIDEN" flags. Surely this is place for adults with reasonable opinions.

Jode ,

Last time this happened they said they don't interfere in state election law. Surely they wouldn't change their minds now that it's a liberal state SC ruling would they...?

I have had a handful of that generation golf over the years that I have modified. It would be absurdly simple to drop an electric motor into that thing if the right kit existed.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for this but I remember reading a comment on here a while back saying that to get that kind of energy jammed into a battery that quickly you'd need a cable as thick as a telephone pole to keep it from glowing like a toaster coil.

Jode ,

Yes but that's 10s of thousand volts AC power at a reasonable current. We're talking DC at a couple hundred volts and an extremely high current.

TIL that salt rock, the stuff used during winter, helped contribute to the Flint Water Crisis ( www.theverge.com )

Road salt on the city’s bridges raised the river’s chlorine levels, making the water more corrosive. This has continued into the present and may have been one reason poorly-treated Flint River water was so damaging to metal pipes....

The DOT around my area has started using cheese brine to pre treat the roads and it has been doing a pretty decent job.
