If you use them for watching TV you might need bluetooth receiver
I am so glad I came across these headphones. The sound quality is better than I expected, while still giving me the ability to hear everything around me. When I am out riding my bike to work it is important that I can hear all the cars around me. The Trekz Titanium give me the ability to so while also listing to NPR on my morning ride.
Another thing I have enjoyed is not having that feeling of ear buds that can scratch inside your ears. These sit on the outside of your ears making for a more comfortable experience. I have even taken to using these as my phone headset in the office. This is a review for the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.
For use as a wireless headset while talking on the phone, these are very comfortable headphones. I have worn them throughout the work day without any discomfort at all. The great thing is I can head both the person I am on the phone with as well as the noise in the office so i know if my office mates are trying to get my attention. Further, many of the people I have talked to on these have remarked that the clarity is great.
For running, and cycling I have found nothing that compares and it is all due to the fact that you can hear the world around you. I can hear now if someone is cycling past me while I am running or if traffic is approaching whereas in the past I would turn down or even take off my headphones on trails with heavy foot and cycle traffic.
I have had this headset for about two weeks, they work very well. I use daily for my outdoor running. I can easily hear cars approaching and any other sounds around me.
Very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend to anyone who wants to here their music or calls, without plugging up there ear canal.
We have used these on walks with the dogs, walk/runs on the treadmill and outside runs. They have a great sound and you can still hear what is going on around you (safety!). Highly recommend!!
The AfterShokz Story
Tune In Without Tuning Out
Joggers can hear cars, animals, and other potential hazards, while office workers won’t find themselves “tuned out” from important conversations. Because the Bluez 2 set is Bluetooth-enabled, there are no wires to worry about, either.
AfterShokz use “bone conduction technology." It was first developed by the military in the ‘80s, and SWAT teams continue to use it today. By sending audio signals through your cheekbones, the vibrations are carried to your audio canal. With normal headphones, sound goes straight to your ears, which can cause damage in the long run. AfterShokz bypass your ears entirely. The dual-microphone system even lets you talk, hands-free, on the phone.
With a high-tech look (a la Google glass), these headphones are worn on the back of your head. They are comfortably made with sweat-resistant materials. And since nothing sticks in your ear, they don’t interfere with hearing devices, and you can share them with other people without feeling creeped out.
This innovative audio is safe for your ears. . . and the rest of you. Read More Read Less
