new toy on its way

Cue in Beethoven's "Ode to Joy".....

The local telephone company contacted me earlier today; they found something I wanted.



This, along with what I already have, a pair of "bone conduction" headsets, should considerably enhance my ability to "hear" music from the internet.  The experience'll still be far from perfect, far from what a person with hearing would hear, but it's another step upward.....

Has anyone ever tried one of these things before?  Mine should arrive next week.

From the description, it looks like a tiny amp.  If it increases the volume which I would imagine will also increase the vibrations, I can see how it would be helpful for you.
