These new sunglasses might just change the way we listen to music on the move forever. The Zungle Panther pairs modern sunglasses design with the latest bone-conduction technology to create a pair of shades through which you can listen to music and make phone calls.

They operate using Bluetooth audio playback, and hands-free calling is possible using the built-in mic. Audio is controlled using a small jog dial, and because the headphones use bone-conduction to transmit audio, they also free up your ears to hear everything your environment has to offer.

As with many bone-conduction devices on the market, battery seems to be a bit of an issue. However, you'll still get around four hours of music playback before you need to plug them in for an hour to get back to full charge.

The Zungle Panthers are priced at $109 until the Kickstarter campaign ends on July 16, which, for a pair of high-tech sunglasses that come with the same lenses as Oakley Frogskins, is actually very reasonable. Watch the promo video above.

Meanwhile, Samsung’s Gear IconX could be the first wireless earbuds worth buying.
