What we think

Feedback on other models of bone conduction headphones on our loan service indicated that they were often too big, bulky and heavy for children. The Trekz Titanium Mini could be a good alternative.

Deaf children and young people experience music in different ways with bone conduction headphones. Some said they could hear the music. Others said they couldn’t hear the music but they enjoyed feeling the music’s vibrations and being able to dance to the same beats as their friends.

What families and deaf young people think:

"My son has a bone anchored hearing aid and this enabled him more clarity of sound whilst not wearing his aid when using his iPad. Patrick was vocalising more details of his favourite songs as he is hearing so much better than with standard headphones."
Mum to Patrick (10)

"Ideal for those with moderate hearing loss. Not powerful enough for those with severe/profound hearing loss."
Eva (17)
