As an alternative to Airpods Pro (see also this thread: Headphones causing deterioration of hearing?) I saw AfterShokz bone conducting headphones: https://www.amazon.com/AfterShokz-OpenMove-Conduction-Bluetooth-Headphones/dp/B08BZF5W7N
Since these don’t go into the ear, are they safe to use?
I have genetic hearing loss (moderate) and I have read some of the theory (hair cell deterioration) but I don’t know whether these bypass the problematic area caused by hearing loss.
I’d very much like to avoid any kind of further deterioration of my hearing loss (that’s why I stopped using Airpods Pro, despite the fact that they were comfortable and nice to listen to).
