One bone-headed idea!

Found some cheap bluetooth bone-conduction ear pieces online.

What particularly caught my eye (beside the price) was that they looked really easy to modify to attach to my glasses.

So a quick snip-snip with some wire cutters and a few cable ties later...

Ear pieces attached to glasses frames

They work well. And are firmly attached -- as well as cable ties, I also notched a groove down them that the glasses frames slot into, so they don't rotate in the wrong direction. The only downside is the need to take them off to charge them every so often -- overnight isn't an issue but they don't quite have the juice to get through the day (I might upgrade the battery some time down the track).

I prefer not having my ears blocked when I am wandering about, so this is particularly good for me.
