Want: AfterShokz Bluez—World's First Bone Conduction Open Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

AfterShokz, the company known for unique open ear, bone-conducting headphones, have confirmed that their wireless Bluetooth headphones will be available and shipping next month.

Check out the photo above. No, dude isn’t wearing his sunglasses backwards. AfterShokz uses bone conduction technology to transfer sound through your cheekbones to the inner ears, bypassing the eardrums completely. Pretty dope and the headphones have already garnered significant attention even before they’re available commercially.

The headphones will be debuted at CES this year and are already up for the Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award in the headphones category, as well as being named one of the 25 semifinalists in the 2013 Last Gadget Standing competition, an annual program designed to highlight revolutionary tech at the International CES.
