It would be nice to block out your boss sometimes, but headphones aren’t always appropriate. Many jobs rely on communication, and some activities can be pretty dangerous if you can’t hear the traffic around you.

As always, new technology is here to help. The KOAR bone conduction Bluetooth headset delivers sound straight to your inner ear, meaning you can still hear the world around you. It’s also super lightweight and designed to work in all conditions.

These headphones would look at home in the new Star Trek movie, but they aren’t that complicated. They simply rest on the bone in front of each ear, and transmit sound into your skull (rest assured there are no weird side effects). And the patented transducers provide excellent audio quality.

Despite weighing just 1.7 ounces, the KOAR is remarkably durable. Made from memory-metal titanium, the whole device is sealed from the elements. Its LiquiPel technology repels water and sweat, and the headset stays firmly in place during workouts.

You can listen wirelessly via Bluetooth for 6 hours at a time (recharging takes just two hours), or use the built-in mic to go hands-free.

Normally priced at $149.99, you can currently pick one up for $76.99 via the Daily Dot Store, with free shipping to the U.S. International shipping is also available; order now to save 48 percent off MSRP.
