Kaibo is more than just your next pair of headphones. We believe in connecting to the fullness of life by using sound to expand the world we live in.
BCT, for short, is sound technology that enables open-ear listening by passing sound waves to your inner ear through bone rather than air. This technology has traditionally been used to help people with hearing loss and disabilities (since the 1970s!), and is more recently being used in lifestyle headphones for those who are looking for something different than the in-ear and over-ear options.
BCT has many known benefits – it causes less damage to your middle ear (eardrum) and allows you to keep your ears open to the natural sounds around you. Fun fact: bone conduction is actually how you can hear yourself underwater, and the technology is also used for military and diving communications. So it’s completely natural and safe!
All Kaibo headphones are built with patented bone conduction technology. Patented transducers, the heart of our headphones, send vibrations through your cheekbones and deliver sound directly to the inner ear.
This is what makes our headphones completely different from normal headphones. You can listen to music, while remaining fully connected to your surroundings.
Additionally, our innovative cladding technique eliminates almost all sound leakage, keeping your music and calls private.
