If you’re looking for a bluetooth headset that will not only withstand the rigors of exercise, but also let you enjoy your music while keeping your ears open to anything–from the pleasant sounds of nature, to potential dangers and risks–this might be a product for you!
Bone conduction technology was first adopted by the military to enhance communications between soldiers, and now this technology has arrived at the consumer market.
We’ve seen people do it. You might even be doing it yourself listening to music through traditional earbuds while walking or running along the street. It may seem innocent enough, but that is an accident waiting to happen. When you have earphones on, you can’t hear approaching traffic behind you.
Unlike the traditional earphones that send sounds through your eardrums, Aftershokz Headphones send sound through the bones of your skull. Instead of speakers, AfterShokz headphones have transducers that send vibrations through your cheekbones to your cochleas, so your eardrums are free to take in your surroundings.
As mentioned, this feature allows you to be more aware of your surroundings and lets you listen to music just as well as with standard earbuds, but without shutting out everything else.
Introducing Aftershokz Headphones
Innovative headphones with functional, flexible, and lightweight open ear design that make them ideal for sports.
Aftershokz, the safest headphones for outdoor fitness, formally launches in the Philippines with a fun run on August 30, 4PM at R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street. Aftershokz is a bone conduction headphone brand that introduces the unconventional OpenFitTM design to headphones.
AfterShokz are wireless, open-ear sport headphones made to ensure safety—perfect for runners, cyclists, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts. lts award-winning headphones deliver the ultimate level of comfort and situational awareness, without compromising on premium sound.
AfterShokz headphones use bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ears through the skull, bypassing the eardrums completely. Place them on your cheekbones, just in front of your ears. This leaves your ear canals open, allowing you to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds while you enjoy your music. Bluetooth® connectivity gives you the ability to be free of wires and make and receive phone calls.
Aftershokz Trekz Titanium (Php5,690) headphones has won the CES Innovations Award and Red Dot Award for its outstanding design and engineering. The backbone of the industrial design is a premium titanium frame, an element chosen not only for its strength and durability, but also for its infinite flexibility.
AfterShokz Trekz Air (Php8,590) is the next generation in bone conduction technology and brand’s lightest headphones, which delivers comfort and sound quality at the same time. Inspired by the demands of elite and aspiring athletes, the Trekz Air is 20% lighter than Trekz Titanium, weighing just 1.0602.
