I received a pair of AfterShockz headphones to facilitate this review. I was not financially compensated for this post. My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
It is official. I need my body back and started training 2 times a week and will be starting my full diet regiment next month….One thing I have to have when exercising by myself is a good set of headphones. Yes, I am one of those people that cannot exercise without music. Luckily a few days ago I was introduced to a very unique headphones brand….AfterShockz
Not your traditional headphones
Unlike a traditional headphone set,AfterShockz has an open ear design which means that nothing goes in your ear which allows for a better perception of your environment!
How do they do it?
In order to deliver this innovative open design, AfterZhocks utilizes bone conduction which is a natural part of the hearing process….So basically, sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously, so AfterZhocks used this fact to develop a suite of branded audio technologies and design patents to deliver a series of headphones that provides the user with great situational awareness and comfort.
For this review, I was sent the BLUEZ 2S headphones which are available in 4 different colors to match your needs.
The BLUEZ 2S features a lightweight and comfortable wireless headset that fits nicely around your ears and it is open so the music is actually delivered using the bone conduction technology through your cheekbones. This guarantees that your ears remain completely open to hear ambient sounds so you can be completely aware of your surroundings while enjoying your music which is awesome, especially for runner, joggers or anyone that enjoys exercising outdoors and wants to keep “ an ear “ on what is going on around them.
The sound delivery is really good and the one thing I was actually surprised on, was how good the music sounds on these.
One thing that took me a bit of time to get used to, is the fact that the headphones do vibrate or at least it feels like it (piece of advice, if you suffer from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders the vibration might aggravate it).
One thing I really liked…The fact that I can use the headphones while wearing my glasses and still feel comfortable!
The BLUEZ 2S can act as a wireless stereo headset, for both audio and voice communication, when connected to a Bluetooth-enabled PC or Mac.
The unit has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can be charged in about 2 hours and can deliver up to 6 hours of music listening …and several days in standby mode.
In addition the BLUEZ 2S features:
o PremiumPitch+™ guarantees a premium audio experience, including wide dynamic range and rich bass
o LeakSlayer™ technology significantly reduces natural sound leakage
o IP55 certified to repel sweat, dust and moisture
o Enjoy six hours of continuous music + calls on a single charge
o EQ presets boost bass and reduce vibration
o Dual noise canceling microphones exclude surrounding noise, effectively enhancing speech
o Audrey Says™ voice prompts guide users through power, pair, play and talk
o Hassle-free 2-year warranty
The retail price on the BLUEZ 2S is $99.95
