Most headphones produce a sound through their drivers that is audible. AfterShokz makes headsets that use bone conduction technology. Naturally, sound travels via our eardrums and bones to our brain. With bone conduction technology, the headphone creates vibrations (don’t worry it’s absolutely safe). The result: The vibrations pass through the cheekbones to the inner-ears and that is read as music by the brain.
"With even lighter weight than before and the improved bass response of these wireless sports headphones, there’s no reason to put up with earbuds any longer."
"The AfterShokz Titanium’s design is impressive, with the two bone conduction transducers sitting just to the side of ears rather than going into the ear canal."
"Aftershokz Trekz Titaniums do both admirably, weathering both salty sweat from long rides and the daily gym-bag battering that goes along with an active lifestyle."
