    They work as advertised, but at higher volumes... you can feel them vibrating and it's really annoying... feels weird and uncomfortable.

    I bought these because I have a public job that aternates dealing with lots of people with long periods of minimal interaction, so I wanted to be able to listen to music and still hear ambient noise. It took a little time to get used to where the headphones sit and the vibration, but pretty soon I forgot the headphones we're even there and could listen to my music comfortably while still doing my job.

    I bought it for listening music while I'm at the gym. But it perform well in other environment too. Sometime it's vibrating on the ear but I guess this is the price you pay for not having something in the ear, what's annoying for me.

    It's a great device, you can listen to music and hear everythng around you. High volume induce heavy vibrations (expected as it's not the function of the device) after wearing it for a long time the top part of the ear starts to hurt. Battery life is good, lasts me the whole day (powered on and actively outputting oudio). Something different, don't expect amazing base but it's good for casual listening.

    Sound: Really mediocre. Absolutely no middle or lower end. The manufacturer designed these to have all the mids/lows "felt" through the vibrations, but seriously failed. The mids and lows are actually removed from output sound and replaced by the vibrations. Comfort: Surprisingly comfortable, even with glasses. Build: Feels like a quality product. No sounds from movement or touching the device. Overall: Not worth a purchase. The vibration aspect is a total gimmick and the sound quality is pathetic. If the vibration were removed, and the sound quality improved a bit, I may be able to recommend them because they were quite comfortable. I like the fact that they do not go into or over your ears which allows you to hear outside sounds.

    Not for gym workouts

    Bought this item to be used for running and the gym. PROS: Doea not fall off when running and moving around. Can hear surrounding noise so it's safe to use when jogging in busy streets. Holds up charge well. CONS: Not ideal for the gym because of all the background noise, you can barely hear the music and if you put volume high it makes an uncomfortable vibrating sensation to the cheeks. Sound quality is not very good for the price.

    I have to admit, I am a headphone junky. I purchased this set of headphones out of curiosity. I can't say I am disappointed, but I do find myself reverting back to my favorite pair of headphones. Here are my pros and cons. Pros: 1. Light weight. I wore the headphones for over 4 hours and forgot I had them on. 2. Easy setup. Connected to my iPhone X immediately. 3. Basic Controls = user friendly. 4. Stay on during intense workouts! Cons: 1. Vibration in the jawbone area at high volume, became irritating over long periods of time. 2. No deep base sound. Even with the ear plugs that came with the headphones, did not really enhance my experience. 3. The start/stop button used to skip songs forward seemed to stick. Would take me multiple times just to skips song. All in all, a decent pair of headphones. I would not recommend these headphones for the gym, especially when there are lots of people. These headphones are good for outdoor activities and leisure use.

    Versatile in ways I didn't imagine

    When I saw a friend wearing a pair of Trekz, I was intrigued, so he let me try them out. I'd heard about bone conduction headphones, but had never had the chance to try them. I was impressed by how well they worked! If you're considering these, you shouldn't be evaluating them like you would any other pair of traditional headphones. Due to the way they work, they'ren't going to sound as good nor as loud as the better versions of in-ear monitors. But that's not a bad thing, and I'll try to explain. Trekz are marketed to highlight the fact that they don't block up the ear canal like other headphones. This becomes valuable if you're wearing them while running or doing other strenuous activities. From a safety perspective, being able to still hear ambient sounds while listening to your tunes is a definite advantage. It's also oddly satisfying to be able to walk around an office building listening to something while still being able to hear people you pass saying hello to you. You don't feel like you're in a movie with the sound muted. The sound quality of these is quite good. They do lack bass, but that's just because they're getting the sound to your ears using your cheekbones, and not the ear canal. If you want to improve the overall tone of the music, you can plug your ears with the included ear plugs, but that kinda defeats the whole purpose of the Trekz. Yes, they come with ear plugs--it's pretty cool. What I didn't think of right away is how valuable these are as a hands-free headset for phone calls. They feature dual microphones which do a great job of picking up your voice. My wife always complained about other hands-free headsets I've used, but she has no complaints about the Trekz-we can hear each other very clearly. An added bonus is that I can keep them on while driving if I'm waiting for a call, and I don't have to feel like it's annoying to try to listen to the car radio. This has become one of my favorite ways to use these. One of the great things about the Trekz is how easy it's to get a good fit. They slip over your ears and settle in easily right where they belong. They don't pinch the ears and can be worn comfortably for long periods of time. The headband goes around behind the head and is very light and mostly not noticed. The only time I don't like it's when I'm wearing a coat with a high collar, but that's not really a big deal. So, should you buy these or spring for the newer model? Actually, I don't think there's enough improvement to spend 50% more. Do yourself a favor and get these! Oh, one more thing. If you play music with more bass, you'll notice that the Trekz cause you to feel vibrations in your cheekbones and ears. It's pretty annoying, but I'm getting used to it. I think this is really the only major thing against the Trekz, but it's not enough to ruin them. I've found myself enjoying these much more than I thought I'd. They're great to use while running, or just around the office. Give them a try!
