Have you ever had problems listening to music while out on a run? I have had so many struggles, especially when I ran the Broad Street Run a few months ago in the rain. Having headphones that are sturdy and high quality make all the difference!
That’s why I was so glad to get the opportunity to test out the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium wireless headphones thanks to BibRave. These headphones use Bluetooth and bone conduction technology to provide great sound quality and comfort while running. I look forward to sharing my review with you!
I’m joining Patty, Erika, and Marcia for Tuesdays on the Run! The theme this week is how often do you race? I really enjoy running races in the spring and fall, though I tend to run a lot more races in the spring. What I will say is that I wish I had the Aftershokz headphones during my races this past year because it’s hassle-free and so much easier to listen to music while on the run!Runners: Check out my review of the @aftershokz wireless headphones! #bibravepro #runchat Click To Tweet
I have tried so many different types of headphones since I started running 5 years ago. I’ve worn the iPod earbuds, headphones similar to the Beats by Dr. Dre, earphones that attach over your ears, and even a different brand of Bluetooth wireless headphones. They either fell out of my ears, bounced too much, or were simply uncomfortable. It also doesn’t help that I have some of the tiniest ears that I’ve ever seen on an adult!
The Aftershokz are different from your average pair of headphones. Instead of going in your ears, the music is delivered through your cheekbones using bone conduction technology. I was a little skeptical at first, but the sound quality is great! These are the best headphones I’ve ever used, period!
I’ve had several runs with the Aftershokz headphones since receiving them from BibRave and they have been great! I honestly can’t see myself ever using anything else!
When I first set them up, it was extremely easy to sync the Bluetooth with my cell phone. I’ve tried another brand of wireless headphones where this process was extremely complicated! I do have to admit that I have had some trouble getting connected on occasion, but after 5 minutes or so I’m usually well on my way!
I went on a 2-hour long run a couple of weeks ago with the Aftershokz and had no issues with the battery life or losing my connection. I’ll keep testing them out on my longer runs to see if they go the distance, but I’m very confident that they will deliver!
I have had so many issues with my earphones slipping off my ears during a run. It has even impacted my performance in races due to being such a distraction. Fortunately, these headphones are SO comfortable. I was nervous that wearing glasses would make them difficult to wear but it’s not a problem at all! I usually put on the Aftershokz first, then put on my glasses. If you wear sunglasses while running this should work for you as well!
Of course, you want to know how do they sound? I’m loving it! When I went on my first run with them on a treadmill, it took a little bit of an adjustment to get used to the fact that the headphones are essentially on my face, so certain movements could affect the sound. But I really like that the design encourages you to listen to music at a lower volume so that you can pay better attention to your surroundings. It’s so important to stay safe while you run. I’ve been running with these headphones and listening to Spotify, all smooth sailing!
If I have been able to convince you how awesome the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium headphones are, you can buy your own pair online! I truly believe that these are the best headphones I’ve ever used for my running! I plan to use them for a very long time.
