Deaf Youtuber Hears Music Better with AfterShokz Bone Conduction Headphones

I’m a big fan of AfterShokz headphones. Bone conduction is a terrific technology, and the Bluez 2 might just be the safest headphones you can wear outdoors.

vishal playing violinI recently got a message from a young Youtuber named Vishal who posts videos of himself playing piano and violin. He’s a remarkable young man, a talented musician who was born with a condition called Microtia and Aural Atresia, which means he was born without ear canals.

Doctors told his parents he would be deaf and mute, but Vishal’s father introduced him to music at a fairly young age, and thanks to bone conduction hearing aids, he participates in school much like a hearing child might.

After watching one of my reviews on AfterShokz headphones, his father thought they would be worth a try to see if they would be an improvement over the hearing aid he has worn most of his life.

They documented their unboxing and first impressions of the AfterShokz M3 Headphones which you can watch below.

Plus they’re even cheaper on Amazon than when I originally shot this video: http://goo.gl/6PgjVU
