The BEST BC design

Our competences in magnetics, acoustics, simulation, materials and micro mechanical assembly put Ortofon in a unique position to add value to the Balanced Electromagnetics Separation Transducer (BEST) bone conductor design. Ortofon is a holder of the BEST license with commercial rights for most applications outside the diagnostic field of audiology.

In 2020 the world was celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, an artist with a special bond to SOUND.

Imagine if the Ortofon Bone Conductor had been there to cure Beethoven's deafness

Enhance your hearing

The Ortofon BC transducers are small vibrators developed on bone conduction principle. The BC transducer turns sound into vibrations, conducts vibrations through the bones of the skull to the inner ear where they are detected and perceived as sound. Being an alternative source of sound, the Ortofon BC transducer generates sound without blocking out environment information, provides freedom of movement and safe work place. The Ortofon Bone Conductor expands your sense register, allowing you to feel sound and its versatility in different environments and within a wide range of applications, e.g. hearing aids, communication, entertainment, outdoor activities, wearables and gadgets.

Conveying sound through bone vibration has a wide range of applications in private, public and industrial sectors:

Hearing aids:implants, hearing aid headbands, hearing glasses devices. Communication:Two-way communication, telecom, under water communication, high-noise environments

Entertainment:Virtual Reality (VR), gaming, headphones. Wearables and gadgets:hands-free headsets or headphones, VR, eyeglasses, headlamps.

Helmets for sports, safety and work:bike, scooter, motorcycle, skiing, football, diving, outdoor, industrial, military, rescue etc.

We apply process-metrology in micro mechanical assembly of Bone Conductors

A Bone Conductor is a product that requires a very high level of micromechanical precision to obtain a uniform quality. Ortofon core competences in acoustics and micromechanics are ideally suited to the manufacture of bone conductors.

Appying ultrasonic welding in BC assembly process

Production at Ortofon is automated and set up with purpose-built precision machines. To obtain uniform quality and a high level of mechanical precision, we apply ultrasonic welding technique for Bone conductor assembly.

Advantages of a ultrasonic welding:

  • Ultrasonic welding is the clean, fast and reliable method of joining Bone conductor's parts. 
  • The process is very quick, typically less than a second and provides much more precise control of heating than for most other welding processes.
