Did you know we listen to ourselves through our bones? That delivering your voice directly via bone structure can improve speech, fluency, memory, focus, coordination and many other sensory functions? I learned this and so much more when Forbrain – Sound For Life LTD sent me a package with their bone conduction headset!
While wearing the headset it enhances specific patterns of your voice through bone structure. Bone conduction is another way our body processes sound. The sound waves are transmitted through the bones in our heads by vibration, transmitting the sound of your own voice 10 times faster and with greater clarity than through the air. The amplified bone conduction in Forbrain and natural air conduction of our voice work together to process information more clearly. The dynamic filter blocks out environmental noise—isolating and amplifying the user’s voice, giving the nervous system a sensory workout.

This is a tiny little sample of the information on how it all works and the benefits of using this product with your family. If you would like to dig deeper, Forbrain has much more detailed information on their website. They cover thoroughly, why you would want to use Forbrain with your family and the science behind it.
My children used the Forbrain headset when reciting their daily poetry memorization. Since they needed to use it for 30 minutes a day they also used it when reading books out loud to me. I used the Forbrain as well when reading aloud to the children.
I am often frustrated with my kids not speaking clearly enough to understand and I noticed an encouraging change in the way they pronounced their words when wearing forbrain. My children also have some issues with reading comprehension and have confided in me in the past that they understand better when I read to them or they read out loud so I can see how wearing the Forbrain could potentially help even more in this area. In the 6 weeks that we used Forbrain I was unable to determine if there had been any significant change in their reading comprehension.
I used the Forbrain while reading to the kids. The Forbrain amplified my voice to me only, and I could feel the vibration of the dynamic filter when reading. I could definitely hear my voice better which made me think more about pronunciation. I also noticed that my mind didn’t wander as much when I was reading with the Forbrain. I liked to use the Forbrain when singing. This really helped me focus on hitting the right notes and feeling more confident.
The Forbrain has a padded case with zipper to help keep it safe and comes with a charging cord. Forbrain is very well made with amazing sound quality. I liked that it was easy to use, all you have to do is put it on and talk. We plan to continue using Forbrain and are excited to see if there are any significant changes at the end of the 10 week session.
