After just a few minutes of training, the swimmer forgets about the presence of SONR staying in direct contact with the coach fully focused on the training.

Tell me more about bone conduction.

We hear sound in two ways: through air conduction and through bone conduction.Air conduction is how we hear most of the time. Our eardrums convert sound waves into vibrations sending them to the cochlear —  hence AIR conduction.  Bone conduction, on the other hand, is when those sound waves travel through bones in our jaw and skull. They end up in exactly the same place — the cochlear —  but bypass the eardrum entirely.

Is SONR a headset?

No, SONR is a small disc-shaped receiver. It works with a Radio Transmitter.

Is it suitable for all watersports?

Yes. You can use it in, on and under the water.
