Sonna – headset that transmits sound directly through the skull

The team of inventors, led by Allison Rowe, developed a prototype of a headset called Sonna, which allows a new perception of sound. The principle of its operation is based on bone conduction, that is, on the transmission of sound around the ear canal directly through the skull, which makes traditional headphones “superfluous”.

The idea of ​​bone conduction is not new . The creators of Sonna simply decided to develop it, in particular, adapting for the needs of cyclists. With the help of a headset they will be able to receive information about the location and further route of traffic around the city.


Sounds will focus on specific areas of the head. From Sonna users only need to “fit” the headset under your head. Technologies used in Sonna can also be used in special devices for the visually impaired. For them, the device will become a kind of guide, which, using sound signals coming from the mobile application, will show them the way.
