One of the perks of running in the United Relay of America with Fit Approach was getting a pair of AfterShokz headphones!
As a trail runner one of the things that I have been struggling to find is the perfect pair of headphones. I like to run with music but I still want to be aware of what is going on around me.
Prior to receivng the AfterShokz headphones, I had been running with a pair of corded headphones so that I could have one earbud in and the other tucked into my shirt. It got the job done but I was really wanting to go cordless. I did try a pair of wireless headphones which I really liked but I couldn’t hear people coming up behind me, so while I liked the freedom of not having any cords, that pair of wireless headphones did not work for me.
The AfterShokz headphones (I should clarify that I was not required to write a review about them, I love them so much, I wanted to share.) are a perfect match for me though! The earbuds rest on your cheekbones as opposed to going in your ears so I am able to hear what is going on around me very clearly. And thanks to the bone conduction technology of the AfterShokz headphones, I am also able to hear my music. It’s a beautiful thing!
AfterShokz headphones are a bit of an investment. The pair that I have costs $129.95 (you can purchase on Amazon here) but for me they are worth it and I definitely would have used my own money to purchase them. They are my new favorite piece of running gear!
