It looks like you no longer need headphones to listen to music. No more ear buds falling off or worse, blocking out ambient sound. Zungle Panther are sunglasses that are going to play your music for you via Bone Conduction. Sweet, right?
Don’t worry, it’s not dangerous! Actually, the technology has been around for a long time. Military uses headphones that are worn behind the ear that ensure communication without blocking off the ear canal to ensure officers can hear ambient sounds in sensitive situations. The sound is transferred directly to the inner ear via vibrations subjected to the bones of the skull. The technology has helped people with impaired hearing in the past; now Zungle just made it something to have fun with too!
Designed like wayfarers, the glasses connect to your phone via Bluetooth and quite literally rock your skull to take it straight to the inner ear. That means, you are the only one who gets to hear your tunes (your own private party in the middle of anywhere!) and your friends won’t have to shout to get your attention. Since this all works through Bluetooth technology, Zungle brings you your calls too. You can talk to your loved ones (there’s a built in mic!) and hear them without wearing earbuds. All the while looking pretty chic.
These glasses recharge through a USB plug that is hidden away from anyone’s eyes while you wear it so you can look your best. Once charged, the power lasts for about 4 hours. They’ve packed this all while waterproofing the glasses. That means you can rock these on the beach or your next pool party without a single worry.
As Zungle Panther keeps your ears open to sounds from the surroundings, these become a safe means of listening to music while you go for your daily run or decide to take the bike to work. With these on, you can still hear all sounds from around you, keeping you safe from possible accidents. This makes it valuable for athletes as well who can relax to their tunes while keeping their ears open for instructions from the coach or exchange of strategy.
All its features are packed in a super light body and available in 5 colors. The lens are replaceable, so you can mix and match to your liking. A single jog dial button controls all the operations.
While the product’s first batch did not receive amazing reviews for its sounds quality, we are excited that this technology is coming in and holds the potential to one day become an improved version, as it looks fun as heavens!
