Experience cartilage conduction technology with Pasona


May 15, 2024

Pasona announced a collaboration on Tuesday with two entities to promote cartilage conduction technology used in earphones and other devices to assist individuals with hearing difficulties. The Japanese staffing service company will work alongside Nara Medical University and CCH Sound, a manufacturer of such products, to develop new products featuring the technology.

The company plans to introduce these new products in its collaboration efforts and showcase them at the 2025 World Exposition in Osaka. Cartilage conduction technology, discovered by Nara Medical University President Hiroshi Hosoi, transmits sound by vibrating the cartilage near the ear.

Compared to bone conduction technology, which vibrates a user’s skull, cartilage conduction is said to leak less sound and allows users to hear clear sounds without blocking their ear canals. Currently, earphones using cartilage conduction technology are in use at some local governments and financial institutions.

Hosoi explained that cartilage conduction earphones are designed to make it easier to hear external sounds and can be beneficial for individuals without hearing difficulties as well. He expressed a desire for more people, especially those overseas, to experience cartilage conduction technology at the Expo.
