My husband had this headset and I absolutely love them. They are great quality and easy to use. The headphone keep their charge for a very long time and has great quality. When on a call people on the other end say they can here me very well without background noise. Lastly the new charger is great magnetic charger. Love it.
I also like that I can wear on my neck versus just a hanging chad from the ear.
The one enhance I would love to see is an adjustable headband.
This item is pretty good and exceeded my expectation of battery life.
Day one: I left it playing for 8 hours straight, then turned it off.
Day two: I let it play until it died (5 hours).
Result: 13 hours of music play time.
Sound quality isn't bad. I like it for working out, doing house work, working on my car/motorcycle. It's nice to be able to hear other things besides music/phone calls since it's not an in-ear headphone. Not good if you're looking for something with a lot of bass.
Now to the bad. It has a proprietary charging cable. If you lose it then you'd have to buy another one. It's nice that it came with 2 charging cables, but having a proprietary charging cable makes it lose a star for me. They could have used either a USB-C or Micro USB connection. Also it's pretty pricey. If it were cheaper by $20 then I would consider that reasonable.
These work better than I expected them to. I can listen to music in my cube without bothering people around me and at the same time I won't miss when someone is talking to me. I also run outside and have used them a few times (excited for warmer weather though). You have to turn the volume up a little more and you won't hear real well if you're on a road with heavy traffic, but I still love than I can listen to music and still be aware of my surroundings outside. These stay on my head while running and I have a small head. I was worried they would come loose or slide down but that is not the case. The controls take a little getting used to. It's hard to feel the button to change/pause as it's pretty flush with the rest of the unit. Overall I love these headphones as they check off a lot of boxes on my list for Bluetooth headphones.
I rarely wear earbuds for running outside because I want to hear oncoming traffic and anything else going on around me. These are the perfect solution. I can listen to anything I want and not have to worry about being blindsided by things I can't see. (Except electric cars I guess.) I've found that wearing them around the house to listen to music or sports without intruding on others is great as well, and using them for phone calls results in better clarity on both ends over anything else I've used. I've only charged them once so far and have been using them for about 12 hours so far over the last week and a half.
Purchased after talking to 3 people who had them. I did not know any of the people I spoke with, but decided to give them a try. So happy I did. Very comfortable, not more sore ears from extended wear, or ear buds falling out. The sound is very good and I have not had one person tell me that they could not hear me. For as many calls as I have a day, these work VERY well. Only criticism, and understandably so, is the base is light. But l for these primarily for calls and not to listen to music. I do use them when I walk and the music sounds really good other than the lighter bass. Being able to hear cars coming is really nice
Would recommend to others
I tested out quite a few different headphones before getting these. I work in an office setting and have to be able to hear what's going on around me. I used different noise cancelling pairs and though the sound was amazing, I felt like I was taking them out more than I should.
I throw these on and almost forget they are there. They are light, don't put a lot of pressure on my head (big heads rejoice), have decent sound quality, and have insane battery life. I definitely see myself investing in more of their products if something were to happen to these
The sound of these headphones Is nice. I use them while out walking so I stay aware of my surroundings. Passing cars will be louder than the headphones but I think that is the point. The comfort is great. They are lightweight and will fit various head sizes even my large cranium. They also work great with people that wear glasses or people that don’t want headphones in or over there ears. They connect easily via Bluetooth and the included charging cable has magnetic connection to charge. They have a rubberized coating and are great for working out sweating rainy conditions.
I recently have gotten into outdoor running, and while my Bose sound amazing they do not allow me to hear what’s going on around me. These are comfortable, sound good, and allow me to hear dangers while running. On a scale of 0-10 quality of sound IMO is about 6....about the same as most cheap amazon or eBay knock off beats. Most of the time I forget that they are on my head! That’s how comfortable they are. If your looking for sound quality keep looking, however if your looking for good sound, great comfort, and the ability to hear your surroundings then get these!
A:AnswerI have hearing loss and I use hearing aids. That rules out ear buds. These use bone conduction. I can leave my aids in if I choose. I can use them without my aids and still get great fidelity. I am extremely satisfied with them.
A:AnswerThey do come with a charging cable. It's a magnetic charging cable. If you didnt recieve a charging cable I would contact them or who u bought them through. Attached is the charging cable that is included in the package
A:AnswerThe sound in these is /really good/ for bone conduction headsets. Midrange to highrange is very clear, and just pops, voice is perfectly clear, and the volume is quite decent.
The downside is that bone conduction headsets are not great for bass. I estimate the sound cuts out at about 40Hz, compared to 20 Hz for normal headphones (and 5 Hz for good ones). The 'speakers' may be able to do lower frequencies, but then it has to go through your tissue, which tends to muffle sounds. You will get better sound quality on good normal headphones.
On the upside, since they don't cover your ears you can still hear everything. This makes them a godsend for when you're biking, running, or walking, because you won't be one of those completely oblivious dopes who can't hear anything around you. Plus, headphones or earbuds can get kind of sore or sweaty after a while (especially while doing active stuff), but these just sit in front of your ears and I can wear them for hours without getting tired of them.
I turn up the bass boost a bit, which helps, and accept a little less bass for the freedom.
A:AnswerTrying to decide myself. Each version is lighter than the prior version. The Aeropex is the newest. 2nd newest are the Airs, before that was the Titanium—just look at the prices. Trade offs seem to be significant improvement in sound and battery life from Titanium to Air, update to Bluetooth 5.x, slight sound improvement and switch to magnetic charging in Aeropex. Eliminating the charging port makes the Aeropex more water and dust proof, and the chargers cost more to provide (you get two chargers with Aeropex but can’t use any other charging cable). From looking at a lot of reviews, it seems like different people fit the Air or Aeropex slightly better, but overall, most people do find each version better than the prior one. The price differences are pretty big right now, so it’s hard to know if the incremental improvements are worth the price difference.
A:AnswerKeep in mind these are NOT hearing aids, they are Bluetooth headphones, so you'll only be able to listen to audio from compatible Bluetooth sources. (Phone / compatible computer, etc.) As these work using bone conduction (similar to the bone-anchored implant from what I understand), as long as your inner ear is working properly, then yes, it should allow you to hear compatible audio sources better than regular headphones. Aftershockz does have a wired version also available if you don't have Bluetooth, though that model is several years old and the newer models are much improved in sound quality, comfort, etc.
A:AnswerDepending on the style of the arms of your glasses, these could interfere and cause discomfort. I can't see any way for them to coexist peacfully as the headphones have to hook over the ear in the same place as your glasses.
