More specifically, the vibrations are produced by the device in the bone of the jaw and temples，then bypass eardrum and proceed to your ear (cochlea).Even more simply put: the technology helps its sound that is delivered directly to the inner ear without needing to pass through the eardrum. Think of bone conduction as a shortcut to hearing sounds.
