Aftershokz Air Bone Conduction Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, Slate Grey

  • I received a Trekz Titanium headset some years back as a gift, as I was unwilling to invest that much without experiencing it myself. It changed my audio life. I loved them. I bought a second set so I would have one at home and one for the office. I\'ve been completely satisfied. Then my first headset was damaged, so when ready to replace them, I looked up the options and chose AfterShokz Air. They are lighter and interesting in many ways, but the range sucks by comparison. My head is literally four feet from the broadcast device right now and reception is choppy. Moving my head around helps, but only slightly. The Titanium headset is so good that I sometimes forget where I\'m connected and walk around the house without noticing any issues. If I could exchange these for the cheaper but far better option (Titanium) I would consider it. These have a place, and if you\'re in the sweet spot for them, they probably are your best option, but they aren\'t mine.There are other competitors out there with similar features. I haven\'t tried them, so I don\'t know how they compare. I can say it is hard to beat the Titanium experience, so unless a friend tries some other company\'s product out and lets me compare AND if I have surprising results, I\'m not going to switch. I\'ll use my AfterShokz Air for as many years as I get from them because they are cool and work, but I won\'t buy another Air headset without some compelling new experience.I will buy the Titanium model again if my Air headset ever has a problem.These headsets are not for everyone. They don\'t cancel out ambient noise. If you want that, they include earplugs, but what\'s the point then; just invest in good earphones that cover your ears. I hate having my ears covered. I hate having things stuck in them even more. For me the ideal experience is having a headset that is very hard to overhear, on my temples, that delivers great sound from Bluetooth at a distance. Air is half of that. When they are working perfectly, they rock. They\'re light and comfortable. They just suck in comparison to the other product the same company offers (in my experience). Still, I would rather use these than my noise cancelling headphones. If compared to ear buds, they\'re 1,000% better (for me)! But add another zero to that improvement if I can get clear audio from more than an arm\'s length away.
  • As a road runner I need to hear the environment around me for my safety. Especially since it seems like almost everyone driving is looking at a phone screen and not the road. Also as a runner I enjoy listening to music with certain BPM for certain runs to help keep pace easier and make the run more enjoyable. I used to run with only one ear bud in so I could still hear the surrounding environment but with music in one ear and outside sound in the other I couldn\'t really determine the distance and direction of outside sounds as great. I discovered the world of bone conduction headphones when my brother in law bought a pair of knock offs for 30 bucks. Well I decided to give them a try so I also bought the \"cheap\" 30 dollar bone conduction headphones. I ended up getting my \"cheap\" ones right when I was starting a 12 week training session for my first half marathon. 8 weeks later the 30 dollar cheap brand was losing sound in one side then they died. I was about ready to buy a replacement \"cheap\" set and decided that 30 bucks for 8 weeks was unacceptable so I decided to pay for a real brand. So far I\'m happy I did. These headphones sound much better than the cheap ones and are much lighter. They don\'t bounce around like the cheap ones did. They have a much longer battery life too. All around these are great headphones for runners or anyone else who needs to hear the surrounding environment along with music. Now I will go over some pros and cons and address the \"bad sound\" quality some reviews are saying.Pros:-Light weight-Able to hear outside sounds-Long battery life-doesn\'t bounce while running-comfortable-sounds better than the cheap knock offsCons:-Can\'t skip back in tracks with the headphone buttons, my cheap ones could do that at least.-A bit pricey but I so was the cheap ones that died after 8 weeks. I guess I\'m just used to 9 dollar ear buds. Lol.Now to address the sound quality issues that people complain about. Yes compared to over ear headphones and in ear ear buds the sound quality of these suck. But these aren\'t traditional headphones. These are bone conduction headphones that are meant to allow you to hear outside sounds for your safety/awareness. Yes they do leak sound and can be heard buy people near you if you have them cranked up loud. This is not an issue with me because I just keep mine loud enough to hear the music. I can still hear my foot steps and breathing while running. Yes these are bone conduction. They come with ear plugs so you can block your ear canals. Even though this defeats the purpose of open ear headphones I guess some people will use the ear plugs. And the funny thing is that when you block your ear canals the sound quality of these headphones goes way up close to in ear canal ear buds. I can\'t really explain this but I would assume it\'s something to do with sound waves out of sync where you can feel and hear these at the same time.Now for my conclusion.As a runner I\'m not too concerned with my music quality. I don\'t even really listen to the music that close. It\'s mostly for the beat that I will change to whatever pace I want to run. Also a lot of 5k and other events are starting to ban headphones. My last 5k I ran just 2 weeks ago said no headphones. Not wanting to argue with anyone about why mine are different I just kept them in my pocket until I got around the first turn then put them on. It\'s not like they are gonna chase me down. Lol. Anyways these are great and have lasted longer than my last cheap set. I will update this review down the road, no pun intended, and let you all know how they are holding up.9 month/250+ mile update:These are still holding up great. No problems whatsoever in the last 9 months. I\'ve ran in pouring rain with them, dusty gravel trails, freezing temperatures, and 90+ degree days. They still pump out the tunes. I haven\'t even noticed any reduction in battery capacity but I only charge it maybe once a month.
  • I very rarely do reviews, but I wanted to mention my experience with these headphones. I bought these headphones in June of 2021. I really liked using them with my android phone until January 2023. I used them almost daily for close to two years. Battery life is great. The sound is great. Then suddenly I stopped being able to connect to my phones bluetooth consistently. The pause button quite working. I have to turn it off and back on several times to hear the sound, even if I just briefly pause it. Overall, I like them but for $100 seems like they should have lasted at least two years.
