Experimental setup facilitates listening to records with your teeth

Ever wondered what your favorite records would sound like reverberating through your jaw, teeth, and head? Odds are you’ve heard of the Tooth Tunes Toothbrush, which began marketing to young children around 2007. Now, the “Tooth Phonograph,” as science educator Sam Haynor coins it, offers eccentric consumers a head-turning new way to listen to music. Costing an approximated 50 cents, the DIY listening method requires a record, cardboard, a pencil, a needle, rubber bands, a thin dowel, masking tape, and, optionally, ear plugs. With full operational instructions here, Haynor says of his avant-garde idea,

“Now you can hear Miles Davis with your molars and The Cure with your canines. With only a few basic supplies, you can tap into the physical grooves of records as they vibrate your jaw, playing music and resonating inside your head. Never before have record stores and dentistry been so tightly linked. Toothfully, you just have to try it.”
