Hearing Loss Is Expected To Increase By 68% Over The Next 40 Years.
Save Your Hearing Before It's Too Late.
Let us tell you about the largest challenge that one of the greatest composers of all time had to endure.
What we are about share with you may open your mind to something that you may have never thought would be possible.
In fact, it may even be shocking to some of you... But, it's true.
For those that do not know Beethoven...
...he had to make his music with a type of challenge that you would not believe.
At a very young age, Beethoven started noticing some changes that were taking place.
He started losing his hearing.
And some of you might be thinking,
"How does one create music without being able to hear? How is that even possible?"
Well, let's just say Beethoven was relentless.
He wasn't going to accept that he was powerless and believed he could still live his passion even during the face of adversity.
As a result, he decided to awaken his senses in a new way by trying something that most people would have never thought of. In order to hear his music, he needed to rely upon vibrations to connect with every note that he wrote.
It's this story that taught us something that is beyond powerful.
Just like Tony Robbins says, "We learn by desperation or inspiration."
And sometimes, it could be both. As Beethoven's hearing started to dwindle, we could guess that his desperation and inspiration began to rise.
His devotion to his music took him deep into places where he had no choice but to find a solution. And with that devotion, he has shown the world that no matter how challenging a situation may be, with careful thinking, creativity, and drive, exciting things can always still happen.
Also, we now know that you do not have to listen to music with your ears to enjoy your favorite sounds.
Like Beethoven, you can use bone conduction to hear your favorite sounds in a very fascinating and captivating mechanism.
Now, if you are someone that is worried about hearing difficulty or hearing damage, then you have to watch this next video where we tested our zBones for decibel level peaks. And honestly, we do not know how most people could use In-Ear Headphones ever again after seeing this...
Even at maximal volume with heavy metal music the decibel levels of our zBones did not go above 80.6!
Let me say that again, ours only go to 80.6! Versus most traditional headphones go to 105-110 decibels!!!
According to the CDC, hearing damage can occur at 80-85 decibels in as little as 2 hours of exposure.
With our headphones, you are no longer putting your ear drum in the same type of decibel exposure as they sit on your cheekbones. And, as we just showed you, even with heavy metal music on full blast, our headphones only got as high as 80.6 decibels.
This is why we encourage all of you to be proactive.
Stop listening to music through your ears and start protecting your ear drums.
When putting on our headphones it can be like an awakening as you've never heard sounds without your ear drums. Like this little girl trying them on for the first time. It leaves people literally saying, "Wow!"
Watch closely how this gentleman plugs his ears but can still hold a conversation... and of course, he also uses that magic word...
If you feel like you are ready to stop putting pressure on your ear drums, then do not procrastinate and get your headphones today.
So many music users have reported hearing loss from headphones that go in their ears.
They are finally at that breaking point where they believe traditional headphones will increase their chances of hearing issues.
It's almost like they are saying, "Enough of the traditional headphones! It's time for a change!"
According to the American Tinnitus Association, Nearly 50 Million Americans Struggle With Tinnitus which can be described as buzzing, humming, ringing, or a swishing sound in the ear.
In a Canadian study they found that upto 30% of teens have reported tinging and buzzing in their ears due to the high volume of sounds going directly into their ears.
According to James E. Foy, DO, an osteopathic pediatrician, listening through headphones at a high volume for extended periods of time can result in lifelong hearing loss.
He says, "Even a mild hearing loss due to excessive noise could lead to developmental delays in speech and language.”
You all know how loud "Ear In Headphones" can be as people choose to use them everyday, non-stop.
According to the CDC, loud noises can cause hearing loss quickly or over time...
Hearing damage can start becoming possible when listening to decibel levels of 80-85 after 2 hours of exposure.
Common headphone listening can reach as high as 105-110 decibels which can actually cause hearing loss in less than 5 minutes.
Now reaching these decibel levels when listening to headphones is not necessarily the norm for every listener... but 75% of this maximal level would put many listeners at 80-85 decibels.
Which, like we said 3 sentences ago, can create hearing damage after 2 hours of exposure.
Researchers at John's Hopkins University have found that the number of adults in the US, 20 years or older with hearing loss is expected to gradually increase from 44 million in 2020 to 74 million by 2060.
Don't be surprised if these numbers have you thinking more deeply about your listening habits.
Many of us find ourselves listening to sounds with our traditional headphones for long periods of time. This can mean your ear drums could be getting a lot of added sound versus if you did not wear them at all.
And, as virtual learning and gaming is now so popular...
...all kids have their own electronic devices and constantly blaring music into their ears all day, everyday.
This is why zBones are perfect. No ears are necessary. Just your cheekbones. So you can listen to your music with less worry as they will not be inside your ears.
And, according to a survey by the Better Hearing Institute, hearing loss negatively impacts household income on average up to $12,000 per year.
Therefore, zBones are such a low cost purchase for something that can be life changing.
Which leads us to another very important thought that seems to be having an unexpected impact in the world today.
In a Swedish survey of 72,000 people, 9% of women and 5.5% of men that suffered from tinnitus reported suicidal thoughts.
However, to be fully transparent, there is a distinction between attempts and events.
"It is important to say that an increased risk of suicide attempts does not mean an increased risk in suicide events," said lead researcher Christopher Cederroth, from the laboratory of experimental audiology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
Based Cederroth's research, this survey does not mean more suicides had taken place necessarily.
However, and this is really important that you think about this.
The psychological impact of tinnitus can be beyond debilitating for many people.
Kind of like after your favorite concert only the ringing never actually stops when it's over.
Imagine if you were someone that was constantly fighting a certain type of sound that was repeatedly coming into your ear drum.
Imagine if that type of sound was so everlasting that you even felt it while trying to fall asleep at night?
Or while doing the dishes?
Or trying to focus at work?
Through so many people's feedback we've realized that tinnitus is not the only issue in itself, but there is uncomfortable worry that comes along with it.
Besides alleviating pressure on your ear drums, let us tell you some other useful qualities of our headphones. With that, let us ask you this question...
What would it be worth to have wireless, bluetooth, headphones that are hard to lose and stay on your head?
Too many of our customers previously reported losing their separate ear buds or they fall out of their ears far, too often.
In fact, it wouldn't be out of the question to state that this problem is plaguing millions of music users.
They are always losing their ear buds or they easily fall out.
Especially if they are being active during functional activities like running, biking, hunting, shooting, fishing, and much much more.
Don't get us wrong, the cool factor of wearing separate ear buds is definitely a great fashion statement. To be honest, for people that are sedentary and not participating in extravagant activities, other traditional forms of headphones could suffice.
However, let's be real here, people still lose their ear buds even if they are just putting their shoes on, setting them on their kitchen counter, or they fall in between your car seat.
So actually, even if you are sedentary or moovin and groovin through high energy activities that revolve around a lot of jumping, bouncing, and reactivity, you probably want a pair of headphones that will not fall off your head...
And, of course, take pressure off your ear drums.
As we said earlier, "They can't fall off, they can't fall out, and they don't hurt..."
Just to be sure, we negotiated with Judan to perform the zBones Shake Test.
As you can see... he couldn't, get, them, off... 😂
Besides normal headphones blaring into your ear drums...
What if you are someone that commonly complains about painful headphones that go in your ears?
This is something we hear from users all the time.
Pain can be associated with their listening experiences... especially if their current headphones do not fit their ears correctly.
They choose to try our cheekbone headphones...
...because normal ear headphones "hurt their ears."
Adding to this, not only are zBones 1 piece, but they are also wireless with bluetooth.
And why is this so great?
You can be highly active and not get tangled up in a cord. In the old days, yes, 1 piece headphones were typically attached to your music player.
With our bone conduction headphones, they are 1 piece, wireless, ready for action...
...and let your ears stay completely wide open.
How many of you have found that nasty build up of ear wax that gets all over your Ear-In Headphones?
Okay, we know this picture isn't pretty. But, we would rather be transparent than say nothing at all.
Let's be real here, how many of you have gone through this process of picking ear wax out of your headphones?
It's not fun.
Just to help you be a more informed, more people should read more about the potential problems associated with lack of ear flow from having the airway obstructed in a person's ear.
With our open eared listening experience, your ears will not find airflow obstruction from our headphones.
And before we go any further, my name is Andy Limbaugh, the President of zBones...
I am the one explaining our world class, bone conduction headphones in the above videos...hailing from Southeast, Missouri where the country music is loud, family campfires are roaring, and a large tractor is lurking in every field.
I am a former college football player, turned fitness fanatic that finally became fed up with losing my headphones during all of my rambunctious activities…
After countless amounts of long distanced jogs and losing my headphones in woodsy thickets, I knew there had to be another way to keep my headphones on my head...
...Not to mention my late night runs through the woods with my ears plugged would keep me a little uneasy.
When trying zBones for the first time, I was hooked! Immediately, I knew that these headphones would stay on my head and keep my ears open at all times. I love these headphones so much that if I would absolutely love to give every person a pair for FREE!
But, then you probably wouldn't like our headphones near as much because heck, who gives away FREE headphones?
This just shows you how much I really want you to have the opportunity to have the coolest listening experiences with your favorite sounds, and, protect your ear drums.
Here is something else we've learned...
many people complain about having little ears and need better headphones.
People are curious about open ear headphones because they can never find ear buds that sit comfortably inside their ears.
Or, they just don't like ear buds in their ears.
And for some people, besides "Ear In Headphones" hurting their ear drums, certain headphones may actually hurt their ears.
zBones sit on your cheekbones and leave your ears completely out of the equation.
And yes, we realize this isn't a person. We didn't have any volunteers to show off their ears for this picture. But we felt this little guy is kind of a cool doggy.
So how does bone conduction work?
Bone conduction works by sending sound vibrations through the bones of our skull to our cochlea.
The sounds around us make the skull bones near our cochlea, vibrate. We may not be able to feel these vibrations, but our cochlea can.
It picks them up and sends them to the brain as electrical signals, allowing us to hear the sounds.
Which leads us to share a really interesting point about hearing...
The use of bone conduction headphones cannot cause hearing loss between the outside of the ear to the eardrum.
So what does this specifically mean?
We have found that many people are choosing to use bone conduction headphones as they feel that listening to their favorite streaming audio content through ear buds is a less than desirable short-, and long-term, experience; physical discomfort of having the buds inserted into their ears and too, knowing that continued use could lead to long-term hearing loss.
This is why we say that if you are a person who feels the anecdotal worry about listening to music conventionally, then switching to "cheek bone-hearing” could be a very suitable alternative to our traditional listening process.
If you've read this far, then this is something you absolutely need to know and do not go further until you read this next part. If you can agree to that, then simply say to yourself...
What we are sharing with you when we talk about zBones is not just a product. It's much more than that.
Everyone on this planet is living their own story and this is something that people are drawn to. We love stories... especially a life changing story.
So, as the zBones Family continues on their journey, we will continue sharing our story and all of the life changing moments that people go through when using our headphones.
Who knows, maybe we will create the zBones Book one day. But for now, think of this journey as the zBones Story.
So we could say, as you jump to the next section or in literal terms, turn the page, if you have not tried our zBones yet, we would highly recommend that you begin envisioning yourself with our headphones in your favorite activities.

What are others saying about zBones?
“Unlike earbuds these are worn outside of the ears, I am deaf on my right side, wearing these I can hear music and my phone because it uses bone conduction. OMG, I nearly cried hearing sound on my right side and clearly for the first time in a decade.”
"These headphones are wonderful! I jog with them and they don't move at all on my head! I like that there is nothing inside my ear, the sound quality is great, and I love that I can still hear everything around me (especially later at night) while enjoying my music. Buy a set of these, you won't be disappointed!"
"I had just got your Stealth, I had worn them while snow blowing and had them in my hat. I took the hat off and put it in the wash, the machine filled a quarter way before I fished them out. The Stealth still works and I'm enjoying them. Thanks for quality product."
"I wear mine under my snowboarding helmet and can still hear the snow under me while ridin. Great product love em!!!"
