    Works great if you control your expectations

    Well crafted, solid construction. Fits well, on both my wife's head, which is small, and my own, which is about medium size. Good connection with the temples and comfortable to wear. It is important to remember this is a bone conduction device, so it may become uncomfortable at high volumes. In addition, the bass response is not very good, although it can be greatly improved by using the provided foam earplugs, although that may nullify the reason for buying them. For the spoken word, such as recorded books or podcasts, they are perfect.

    Very awesome concept but lacks quality sound...

    The idea of not having something sticking in your ear is awesome and for the most part these are absolutely great. They do lack sound quality and will never compare to the high end headsets for music listening. Sound quality does improve with use of the ear plugs but then that defeats the purpose of bone conduction and not having something in you ear. Overall I would highly recommend this to any business professional or anyone that wants to be able to listen to their device and still hearing anything in their surroundings. Battery life is pretty good and they charge quickly. The ability to make a connection with two devices at the same time is way more useful than I thought it would be .

    Most amazing headphones ever owned

    I work on an ambulance and my son in law and daughter purchased these for me for my birthday three days ago. I've barely been without them since. I can listen to music and still be able to hear patients or my grandchildren if they need me. The sound quality is outstanding and doesn't hurt my ears like all my other headphones after a bit. It was one of those few gifts that I don't think I could live without now. I love that I can chart with these on and my partner can still talk to me without having to take them off or turn them off. Well worth the money!

    Fantastic-can run with situational awareness!

    Have run over 88,000 miles— without music/headphones because of my wanting to be aware of cars and other distractions out there on the road. The AfterShokz headset provides music with being able to hear what is going on and keeping alert. I am not an audiophile, I am a runner. I find the music sound quality works for me. About 2 hours to completely charge. Over 11 hours of play time over the last couple weeks. Currently running with the Fitbit Ionic. Strongly recommend. I have always marveled at folks out running with headsets and oblivious to their surroundings as well as not running facing traffic and without lights when the conditions warrant. Keep fit. There is no finish line!

    I absolutely love these headphones! I have small ears and have always struggled to find a pair of headphones to wear while running that would stay in my ears. With these, I don't have to worry about that nor do I have to deal with the bulk of over-the-year headphones. Lightweight, great sound quality, easy to pair and, as advertised, you can hear ambient noise around you and carry on a conversation with your running partner (no more pulling the headphones away to hear what they are saying to you). I've already recommended them to several people and just bought some to give as Christmas gifts.

    Ecstatic! Better than I imagined

    I have been looking at bone conduction for the last year. I bicycle a lot and the interference of in-ear speakers is uncomfortable in most cycling and running applications.. but I love music when I am working out. I ordered a bargain set off of Amazon and it was the only thing I ever returned to them - junk. So I hesitated to buy these. Boy am I glad I did. The sound is awesome, but I can still hear around me. The battery life is adequate so far and the connection to three of my devises (so far) is flawless.

    I love these wireless, Bluetooth headphones! The audio is amazing for both phone calls and listening to music. The battery life is awesome! Once charged up, I’m usually good for about a week or so. Of course, I turn them off when I’m not using it-so that might be a big help to lasting longer. The only drawback for me would be to have an adjustable piece so the headphones don’t stick out so much on the back side-around my neck area. Maybe I have a smaller head, but sometimes when I turn my head, they seem to move when it touches my shirt/jacket. But other than this small drawback, I highly recommend the Trekz Titaniumheadphones! :-)

    I was a bit skeptical about bone-conducting headphones especially when I learned the volume was limited to reduce the literally bone-jarring vibration. What makes these unique is the way the sound compliments (rather than dominates) the surrounding environment (or you could always use the included earplugs). The concept and the implementation take a little getting used to but now I use them all the time. It's especially great for those less-than-fascinating conversations where a little background music pumped into your skull will keep you from banging your head against the wall. :)

    Not a comfortable fit

    Posted
    Moocow1980

    I really like the concept of the headset using a different method of sound delivery rather than something inserted into the ear canal. The sound quality is great. However, the comfort of this design is not. If you wear glasses, either this or your glasses will not rest comfortably or naturally. Also, the band wrapping around your head is hard, and cannot be adjusted. If I lean back, it moves the unit as I lay on my head, which is a significant inconvenience. I haven't had these even five hours, and I will be returning them. I had high hopes but this just isn't a fit for me.

    I have wanted to try these headphones since I a had first heard about them. I wanted them because they would be easier to use where I work than traditional headphones. I am so glad I saved up the money to get them because they are great. They definitely are easier to use at my work then regular headphones because I can listen to music/audiobooks while working and still hear what is around me. I definitely recommend them. I might even end up buying a second pair.

    These have been awesome so far! I run between 12-20 miles a week and go to the gym 4-5 days a week. These headphones allow me to listen to music and hear my surroundings at the same time, which is much safer for road runs. The sound quality is not as good as my studio headphones - which is to be expected for bone conducting head. The best part about this set is that they do not go into your ear like earbuds so no pain or issues. Worth the buy if you run a lot.

    Really allows you to be aware

    These headphones were really easy to use right out of the box! I only had to charge them for a few minutes to have enough juice to use them on a run right away. Very easy instructions for the simple buttons on the headphones. They were very comfortable and although I only used them for 30min, they stayed in place. True to their word, I was able to listen to my music while still hearing traffic and conversing with my running partner with ease. This is a review for the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones that I received free of charge to do a beta test and review.

    Okay but hurt my ears

    Posted
    Gurlie

    I really wanted to love these because I don't like having headphones inside my ears. They definitely work and the sound quality is good. The noise cancelling worked as well. They also had a stylish streamlined appearance and fit just fine with glasses. My 2 complaints are the fit and vibration. 1. Super uncomfortably tight. It pressed against my face and over time really hurt the back of my ears. I wish it had a bit of cushioning or a bit softer rubber. 2. If I turned the volume up it would vibrate against my face. I didn't like that sensation against my face.

    Bought these for working out so I wouldn't be taking earphones in and out. They do transmit sound well at high volumes but not anywhere near as loud as in ear phones. To be able to really hear whats going on around you they need to be extremely quiet. I do like how easy they are to pause and play without removing them. The fit is great except for laying down on things like bench press. I would have liked to see the difference between these and the air version. The packages list the same details and even with a bit of googling I can't find what makes the air model worth $50 more.

    These headphones work great and the setup and connection was quick. The fit is tight and with glasses it takes some practice to make them comfortable. The sound is very good, plenty of volume and clear as a bell on calls. The hands free feature is superb and is easy to connect to your favorite numbers. Being able to hear what's happening around you, even when playing music at peak volume is the best part, nothing in your ears to irritate or fall out.

    I have a hearing loss and these are great because they bypass the ears and put the sound directly to the bone. And what a rich sound. I can connect to my phone and talk and listen to people,hear it ring and alerts it does. And sometimes I even listen to my music. Then go home and connect to the TV and can listen at the volume I want and not worry about having it too loud even late at night my wife can go to sleep because my volume is separate from the speakers. All done by bluetooth.

    I was a bit hesitant at first, but now these are my favorite headphones. The fact that I can still hear things going on around me while listening to my music is perfect! While mowing the lawn, I just throw in the included earplugs, trigger the "equalization adjustment" and get to mowing! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! **a bit about sound quality: These are bone conductive, so while the sound is good, you will never get the deep deep bass of traditional phones.

    I have been through several headsets in the past year, 4 different brands in one day. This headset fit all of the check boxes, light weight, good sound quality in noisy conditions, good voice quality as well. Takes a little while to charge but once charged lasts quite well when not in use, have not used it for 6 hours straight so not sure on that claim. But for safety when driving none better, allows ambient noises along with headset sound to both be heard.simple controls, but placement is a bit awkward. Also they are flexible but not adjustable which is my only major issue with them.

    Overall I love the product. The only thing I wish it had is an adjuster. They are a little large for me, so don't sit on my ears the way I would prefer. I love being able to hear what is going on around me. One MAJOR PLUS is how durable they are. I was trying to cross the street to get to my gym, and they happened to fall out of my gym bag without the case. Headphones got ran over by both tires of a car, and are still in perfect condition! I will definitely be recommending these!!

    Needs a smaller version or size adjuster...

    I was excited to buy this as a friend of mine absolutely loves theirs. I was so disappointed after my first use because mine kept moving... I was only doing a light walk/jog and the headphones kept sliding down my head in the back and I couldn’t get full effect of the music. When they’d stay in place at first, however, I was really delighted and amazed by the technology and sound quality. I wish there was a way to better adjust for a better grip or sizing.
