Is this the future? BATBAND is here and it certainly hopes so. These new headphones aren't your ordinary headphones, instead of playing music through your ears – they play music through your skull...

The folks at StudioBananaThings created these first high-fidelity, bone-conduction headphones dubbed 'BATBAND'. The idea is that you are able to listen to music, make calls and more, without completely blocking out the world around you.
