Listening to music, Sound quality, Use for phone calls
I got the titinum, to use at work, I had read they were good for people with lack of hearing and or tennitus,I have both in my left ear.( I work with the elderly and disabled) not knowing much about them,I was disapointed after an hour they hurt my ears thinking it was just a new thing i kepted them on for about 4 hr. Still hurt,the sound was good,the pain was bad.
I started watching review on the other styles,and decided to TRY apex style.
OMG! as soon as I left the store I knew they would work well, Im big into audiobook and podcasts.
I get great clarity,with music and my audiobooks.
even at a lower volume the clarity is good,with my hearing issue I hear in the center of my head with aftershokz apex, not on my right side where all other headphone and ear buds do.
The phone call quality is very good, I can understand better,and was told they could heat me very clearly.
I even put them over my wrap around ear muff then put these on top the sould was great!and i like that they are small almost unnoticable when wearing.
I wish aftershocks would make some that go over your head like a headband so i could use them while laying down. And have an adjustable band around the back of your head. Make some that would clip on to a hat band or your glasse stems. Would be good.
Would recommend, batteries don't last long as advertised 2 hours max, sound is good low but high it gets muffled but half away is great can hear what's going on around me, if you have a big head its hard fitting comfortablly.
My review is based on MY needs for headphones. My airpods died and needed to replace them, and wasn't entirely happy with them. (battery life was terrible, etc). I was very skeptical about buying the Aeropex after reading some reviews, but realized the bad reviews looked to be people who bought these prior to doing any sort of research. If you want extreme bass, these are not for you. If you want noise cancellation or to NOT hear your surroundings, these are not for you. I use these for running/exercising. I expected the sound to be soft, and maybe even a little uncomfortable to wear, but couldn't have been more happy with them. They are very lightweight and don't even notice there are on, they are plenty loud for my needs - i want to hear my surroundings and my music, and these are perfect for that. Others wondered how they would fit with sunglasses or a hat, I live in FL and always run with sunglasses and a hat and doesn't get in the way at all. Whether I'm running by cars, in the woods, or on the beach, its great to be able to hear everything around me. If you want to block out the noise, they do come with ear plugs (which will also make the music louder if used). I have not used them for phone calls, and couldn't care less how the mic worked because that's not why I bought these. 8 hour battery life is also a huge plus because on my long runs, my airpods would eventually die before my run ended (and the battery slowly diminished after a year like typical apple products, and wouldn't replace or fix the issue) - The aeropex also come with a 2 year warranty
Suppose to have a 2 year manufacturing warranty and they do not stand by product. Cutting out and shutting off automatically. Issue less than 1 year old
Should have bought product from different business, one that stands behind the products they sell.
This is not your average ordinary "earbud". It has a very different and unique use case which perhaps the low rating from Consumer Reports is not fair in comparing apples to apples. I have purchased numerous (25 +) headsets/earbuds over the past several year. Most of my purchases have been higher end such as Apple, Beats, Bose, Jabra, Jaybird, etc. I use wireless earbuds all day and even at night to help me sleep. In my opinion, there is no perfect earbud. I wish I could combine certain features into the ultimate earbud. I was very skeptical buying the AfterShokz Aeropex but extremely glad I tried because they are hands-down my favorite earbud. I currently have 5 major use cases for earbuds. 1. General All-Purpose Walk-Around earbuds 2. Listen to Music and drowned everything out buds 3. sleeping earbuds. 4. water resistant workout/walk/run/bike earbuds 5. conference call and business application buds. The Aeropex fits 1, 4 and 5 of my uses above any earbud I've every owned. The AFterShoz are extremely versatile and now my go-to buds that I use the most (replacing my AirPod Pros). What makes the Aftershokz great is I can wear them all day sometimes even having to feel around my neck to make sure they are there. There’s absolutely no ear fatigue since they do not go into the ear or ear canal. They are great because unlike other in-ear buds, I can hear everything around me and not have to take them in and out when someone comes up to talk or I divert my attention to something else. This is a great feature at the office, home, in the car or going to the store. These are also great for business calls. They are fantastic for working out especially running and biking where you need situational traffic awareness of your surroundings. They also are low profile and do not create an air vortex while biking. This is an issue with the Bose and Jabra which stick out of the ear. These are not my buds that I use to immerse myself in music. They are fine for listening to music while working, but I turn to my Bose or AirPod Pros if I want to relax to music. These are absolutely the best solution for podcasts. They are not as good for sleeping in or laying down. I use my Beats X for that since they have a very small in-ear bud. The water resistance very good and withstands the shower. They sync up quickly and easily with my iPhone.
- Extremely comfortable and surprisingly feather weight. Forget you have them on.
- All day wearable with no ear fatigue
- Great battery life
- Multiple applications and uses. Best “All-Around” general use purpose.
- Don’t have to take them in-and-out or off-and-on to talk with someone
- Great battery life
- Can use conventional earplugs to block out external sounds if needed
- IP67 water resistance rating
- Stays in place while active.
- Very low profile. Not as noticeable to others when wearing.
- Very little sound leakage (the sound can’t be heard by someone standing next to you)
- Battery takes 2 hours to fully charge
- No way to turn of the notification beep that indicates you’ve been disconnected from your BT device
- Battery notification only has high, med, and low indicators. Would be better to have power percentages in 20% increments
- Bluetooth signal reception is not as strong as advertised.
- Has a some physical vibration at the sound levels 9 and 10. Level 8 is sufficient for most uses. Not a deal breaker.
- Switching between low and high modes is a bit difficult (pressing two buttons at once) while wearing and does not indicate the mode you changed to
- Battery level indicator only has three levels (high, medium and low). Would be better with percentages in 20% increments.
- Not as portable as true earbuds.
- Sometimes you can’t tell that you have them on and have to physically feel for them to see if you are wearing
- Biking, running and walking (there is no wind vortex sound created like with other earbuds and has the best situational awareness hands down)
- Sports practice (football, baseball, basketball, etc.)
- Business setting, shopping, general walking around day-to-day use.
- Phone calls (surprisingly good microphones)
- Driving (if legal in your state) (again, you can hear your surroundings at the proper sound level while using)
- Showering (IP67)
- Music (fine for most people while exercising and working at the office)
Not good for:
- hard core music lovers
- Bench pressing during weight training
- Lying down flat
- Teenagers looking to drown everyone out around them while listening to music
These are very worth trying. I was skeptical at first but highly highly recommend for the uses mentioned above. They are now my absolute favorite general all-purpose wear all-day sound solution. It is a very unique product with a very cool sound projection. The experience is similar to having your phone on speaker, but with much better, louder and clearer sound. They are great for business, shopping, running, biking, etc. Great taking phone calls, listening to music and podcasts while working throughout the day. You can use convention earplugs with these headphones if you’d like to block out the sound around you. If you’re looking for something to immerse yourself in music, look at Bose or AirPods Pro. If you’re looking for something that immerses yourself in music while working out and won’t fall out of your ear, check out PowerBeats3. If you’re looking for something to use to fall asleep, check out Beats X.
I wish these worked. Came from a 3 year old pair of Aftershokz Trek Air with 12 hours of daily use. "Upgraded" to Aeropex and while I found that they sound better and last longer on a single charge, I can't seem to get a pair that survives longer than a month.
I've been through 4 pairs of these.
First lasted a couple weeks, then started just shutting off randomly without warning.
Second pair just stopped working entirely after about 1 month. Wouldn't power on, wouldn't charge (no light from charging indicator at all.)
Third pair lasted 3 days before it died entirely, just like the last pair.
On my 4th exchanged pair now. These aren't being used in any kind of extreme environment. They were never exposed to moisture of any kind. My pair of Trek Air lasted 3 years in the same environment as these are being used and were only replaced due to reduced battery life from expected wear and tear.
And the worst part of this: despite Aftershokz knowing that this model is defective as evidenced by the FAQ on their own website with these exact issues saying to contact them for a warranty replacement, they are still selling these and expecting me to cover the shipping for their warranty replacement of a defective product. Such a disappointment.
The analysis of all aggregated expert reviews shows that the reviewers are positive about portability, reliability and comfort. Editors are less positive about usability and sound and have mixed opinions about design. Using an algorithm based on product age, reviewers ratings history, popularity, product category expertise and other factors, this product gets an alaTest Expert Rating of 88/100 = Very good quality.

Aftershokz's Aeropex are refined bone conduction headphones with most of the same snags
It's not the best of both worlds, but it's better than I thought it would be.Full Review

AfterShokz Aeropex Bone Conduction Review
The AfterShokz Aeropex Bone Conduction are Bluetooth headphones. Due to their unique design, which uses vibrations instead of speakers to produce sound, they donFull Review
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: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: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:AnswerI size fits all. I have a Fat head. 7 7/8 hat size. My wife has a small petite head and they fit fine. We use they with bicycling helmets and with over the ear noise protectors, and they work and fit fine. The only problem is lying back in the recliner, or bed the areopex end up pushing forward.
A:AnswerThese are just the updated versions of previous headphones. They get louder, are lighter, have better build quality, and produce sounds better than previous generations. As future versions come out, this one will fall in price just like previous models have fallen.
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.
