INTRO: Since the time of last year, all the companies have been extremely trying to develop the technology behind the headphones to improve the sound quality. Finally, new Inmergo Headphones are coming up. This is to deliver good immersive sound along with the benefit of convenience.
Now, There’s a designer from the Royal College of Arts, He has created and designed a water-filled headphone that specifically aims to improve the existing bone-conduction technology in headphones. The headphones, are dubbed as Inmergo, and they are like any other bone-conduction headphones are available in the market. The design enables them to bypass the eardrums and then deliver the sound vibrations directly into the ears of the user.
Inmergo Uses Water As Primary Carrier For Sound
But, rather than using air as a sound carrier, like any bone-conduction headphone, but instead of that the Inmergo uses water as a primary carrier of the sounds to use water as a carrier of sound. Well, if go in detail it is an ultrasonic gel to be precise, as the originator, you can see that it is the best technology in delivering sounds after testing many other fluids.
Flexible Membrane To Deliver Sound Vibrations Through Touch
The creator, named Rocco Giovannoni, was able to achieve this sound technique by using waterproof speakers that are completely submerged in water. After that he used a soft and flexible membrane-like outer shell to cover the Inmergo. This is a membrane that sits on the users’ skin to deliver the sound vibrations via touch to the ears.
People With Hearing Disability Can Enjoy Immersive Music
According to the creator, the Inmergo, by using this type of unique which is water-based tech, the headphones can deliver far better sound quality than any bone-conduction headphones that use air to carry the sounds in it. Even the people who are with hearing disabilities can also enjoy the immersive sounds with these bad boys.
Currently, Rocco has two types of prototype models of the headphones for now. These include a normal two-unit set and the other one a more comprehensive five-unit helmet that wraps around the users’ heads.
The creator has planned to develop the patent-pending design to make it much more efficient, although he has already won the Snowdon Award for Disability, which is a part of the RCA Helen Hamlyn Awards. He is not currently looking for investors to make the Inmergo a market-ready product in it.
