If you’re a frequent Peloton user, trail runner or street walker looking for a headphones that won’t isolate you from the outside world, but still offer superior sound quality, AfterShokz has your answer.
Introducing the AfterShokz Air, the most lightweight and flexible headphones from AfterShokz designed to move with you. The wraparound titanium fits most head shapes and ensures comfortable long-term wear.
Their bone-conduction technology is designed for open ear listening with no wires, no tangles and no lost earbuds.
But what is “bone-conduction technology” and how does it work exactly? The transducers in the headphones send mini vibrations through the cheekbones directly to the inner ear, bypassing the eardrum. In other words, you can listen to music without needing something in your ear.
Their design leaves your ears open to ambient sounds in their environment, keeping you safer and more aware of your surroundings as you get lost on the trail or city streets.
On top of freeing your ears, these headphones are also completely sweatproof, so you won’t have to worry about them crapping out after a hard workout. They also repel dust and other moisture, making them a perfect companion on all of your outdoor adventures.
You can take calls or listen to music for up to six hours, and the dual noise-cancelling mics help ensure everything comes through clear, regardless of background noise. The headphones will pair to your device via Bluetooth, making them a fully wireless.
