These wireless headphones transmit audio waves via facial bones to offer clear, clean mid and high pitch frequencies as well as deep bass tones.
The soft rubber cushions of the O Bones headphones are designed to sit on facial bones just in front of the user's ears. The vibrations created by music, voices and other sounds are then gently transmitted through the bones rather than air movement. Included in the advantages of this form of listening are being able to still hear external noises like traffic, conversations and other ambient sounds, the ability to blend sound so musicians can listen to their favourite track and hear as they play along to it.
The wireless Orange O Bones utilise 16mm speaker capsules to achieve a broad range of frequencies with surprisingly loud volume. Users not only hear the bass, they feel it, the mids are crystal clear and the highs are sharp and well defined. The ergo-dynamic design ensures a secure fit for comfortable listening whatever the activity. Powered by a lightweight rechargeable battery, the O Bones can deliver up to eight hours of listening time and can be fully charged within an hour using the USB-C cable included. The headphones voice control is compatible with Bluetooth 5.0, Siri/Google Assistant for truly hands-free use.

A custom-designed radio with four calibrated internal antennas delivers a lossless 24-bit digital signal.
Calabasas, CA (April 1, 2015) -- Line 6, Inc. today announced the availability of the Relay G70 digital wireless system. Delivering next-generation wireless performance to meet the needs of performing guitarists, Relay G70 provides hands-free support for multiple instruments and is designed to be the control center of musicians’ live performance rigs, with unparalleled audio quality and rugged metal construction.
“Line 6 digital wireless is the most trusted guitar wireless system on the market, and is used by more guitarists than any other system,” said Marcus Ryle, Chief Strategy Officer, Line 6. “Now Relay G70 takes the Relay legacy even further by providing the fastest and most advanced digital wireless technology available– while adding benefits for your entire guitar rig that no other pedal on the market offers. For performing musicians, Relay G70 represents nothing less than a revolution.”
The receiver supports multiple transmitters (additional transmitters sold separately) and allows musicians to instantly switch between instruments. Each transmitter features a locking 1/4” input that allows guitarists to plug right in without requiring a special cable. User-programmable presets on the receiver enable performers to control each instrument’s signal routing, levels and more, with the single press of a footswitch. For example, guitarists can route an electric guitar to an amp via one of two assignable 1/4" outputs, and an acoustic guitar to the PA system through the assignable XLR output. A dedicated always-on 1/4" tuner output is also provided, in addition to a built-in tuner. And to preserve battery life in multi-instrument setups, the new intelligent sleep mode allows you to leave all your transmitters on with minimal battery drain on any instruments you’re not playing.
Relay G70 provides industry-leading audio specs and the lowest latency of any digital wireless system (under 1.5ms). A custom-designed radio with four calibrated internal antennas delivers a lossless 24-bit digital signal and a wide dynamic range of over 120dB. And unlike other analog or digital wireless systems, Relay G70 never compresses the signal, providing guitarists with the purest possible audio quality. Guitarists will enjoy 8+ hours of battery life with standard AA batteries, plus up to 70 hours of standby time thanks to the intelligent sleep mode. Relay G70 features a rugged stompbox form factor designed to become the centerpiece of your pedalboard, and a key component that solves real problems.
Relay G70 (with one receiver and one transmitter, $699.99 MSRP), and additional Relay TB516G transmitters ($279.99 MSRP) are available now. Relay G75 ($699.99 MSRP) will deliver the same functionality in an amp-top form that supports an optional footswitch, and will be available in Q2 2015.
