Unlike conventional transducers that use moving air to produce sound around you, Dayton Audio BCTs (bone conducting transducers) convert the electrical signal into mechanical vibrations so clean, that the brain interprets the vibrating stimulus as excellent sound. Listener's ears are left free to remain aware of their surroundings, increasing personal safety.
When used against materials such as cardboard, wood, steel, and plastics, the BCT operates much like a surface exciter, capable of moving mass to produce robust sound output; much like an invisible speaker! BCTs are excellent for unique OEM sound applications and for the experimenter, where conventional speakers and exciters cannot be used due to size constraints.
Note: The frequency response is given when used as a bone conducting transducer. This will change when attached to a substrate, and different substrate materials will have different frequency responses. Polarity is indicated by a small half-moon above the positive solder point.
