Many people will have started teleworking in Corona. Since I am at home, I want to work while listening to my favorite music, but many people are using earphones because the front speaker of my family cannot be used. However, earphones can cause problems such as courier chimes, home appliance alarms, and voice calls from family members, making it difficult to hear the surrounding sounds.
――There is a bone conduction earphone. Bone conduction earphones are earphones that recognize sound by transmitting vibration of the sound to the bone. In other words, you can listen to the surrounding sound and music at the same time because you do not block your ears.

This time I got the opportunity to try the TW-1 before it went on sale, so I will send you a review.
