Those lucky Japanese. They always get to test the latest and greatest gadgets.
This time it’s one cool bone conducting Sound Leaf+ Bluetooth headset from NTT DoCoMo.
Instead of normal speaker effect, the sound vibrations from NTT Sound Leaf + Bluetooth headset are transferred directly via bone to your inner ear. This way the sound can be easily heard even in the noisy environments and by people with hearing disabilities.
In addition to bone conduction, NTT DoCoMo Sound Leaf+ headset has an interesting flip form factor for a twin microphones. One of the directional and another not. This allows you to answer incoming calls just like on any flip-phone and provides for significant noise reduction.
