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

    Good for running outside but they aren't loud; not good in a loud gym.

    I might end up grabbing the higher end pair soon. The only real downside to this pair is people can hear it when you're listening to music at higher volumes if they are close enough.

    The headphones automatically lower the volume when I'm talking to someone, they also rest on your ear and do not go inside your ear. I recommend these over any in-ear headphones

    Battery lasts longer than it states. Volume can get louder than I need it to be. No complaints from me.

    Great device but not for high quality audio.

    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.

    I like being able to run and cycle with these in and still hear cars and surrounding noises around me. The bluetooth works well with a good connection even to my phone when in my jersey pocket (my old ones wouldn't). The volume gets much louder when putting in earplugs as stated.

    They aren't bad if you aren't around a lot of ambient noise. Otherwise, they just don't have the volume to cut through. Good if you run or walk with them. Not so if you work around machinery.

    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.

    I found the Aftershoz a neat product that didn't work for me. The unit seemed well built with quality materials. I found the sound a bit low for my liking, but that probably has to do with the poor fit to my head. I wear my headsets all day and I found the Aftershokz uncomfortable after a bit and not compatible while wearing sunglasses. I work in a louder environment, but not loud enough for ear protection and the unit didn't provide enough volume for me and I didn't want to use earplugs just to make it louder. I found I prefer the over the neck with earbuds to be more effective for my needs.

    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 use these for running frequently. They fit great and are very light weight. I forget I've them on when no sound is coming out. Reason they do not get a better star is because I purchased a year ago and the mic has stopped working and the sound doesn't sound nearly as good or loud as other headsets. Terrible bass if that's what you're into. I've recommended to other runners, but they had an issue and had to replace within two months. Unfortunately I will not recommend to others.

    These headphones aren't designed to replace Beats or Airpods. These headphones are designed to allow the wearer to hear his/her surroundings while listening to audio content. They are plenty loud for listening to music on the average crowded street or gym, but they are pretty useless on an airplane or loud crowd. I use these as my primary headphones because I usually only wear headphones when I am at the gym. I took them to Washington DC on a business trip and they were fantastic for listening to my Google Map directions while walking the city. I would talk to people and respond to traffic without adjusting the volume of my music. One thing customers should know is that these aren't silent. You can hear audio when the headphones are less than a foot in proximity from your ears. I haven't had any problems with them and I have had them for approximately four months.

    Great headphones and you can still hear

    I use these headphones all the time at work. They are great for me to use at work because I can hear people talking to me while music is playing. Previously I've only had headphones that either cover the whole ear or go inside the ear canal. Using other headphones at work, I had to constantly be pausing or removing them from an ear. Where as these, the earpieces sit in front of the ear and somehow they are fairly loud to me but my coworkers cannot hear it. I do notice some soreness or discomfort just in front of the ear after I wear them for really extended periods, like 8 hours. They are probably not great in situations where you want noise canceling like on a plane. They've lasted me over 8 hours of being powered on but without constant use. I really like them.

    Best head phones ever!

    I spend hours outside, and I have destroyed many many sets of "sports" "water resistant" head phones. Some I have had go bad in just a few days due to sweat, but not these! I can listen to and hear conversations around me. While they do require you to use a separate set of actual ear plugs if you need noise canceling "which most of time I do" it really isn't as much of a hassle as you might think. They come with a set of ear plugs and you can purchase others at different decibel levels that suit your needs. I will never buy anything else again. I have worn these while running a table saw and can still listen to the music, the lawn mower and weed eater will not drown it out the volume. I have no complaints, nor have I had any from others concerning call quality, the controls are easy to get used to. You can wear them all day without those sore spots that ear tips give you. Wearing your glasses or safety glasses do not get in the way either.

    Call quality was truly impressive. Friends couldn't even tell I was using a headset. For sound, it is a unique experience. It is a weird unknown feeling at first, then a soothing message. Volume gets louder than expected for not being in your ear canal. Everyone that I let try it wants one. Don't expect a Bose quality sound, it is a different experience. You can feel the bass. Very hard to describe because I have never felt anything like it. It also give you the ability to hear your surrounds while using them because they don't block your ears like average headsets.

    Good Headphones for Bike Riding

    I bought these bluetooth headphones to replace the bluetooth earbuds that I have been using for years. I like these Trekz Titanium headphones for biking as they don't cover your ears and you are able to hear all noises around you. . like traffic. I have used them on road bike as well as trail bike. The only negative is that on windy days and at certain speed on road bike, you won't hear any music for a brief period. I dont crank volume load to begin with so it is understandable to have these situations. The titanium band does kind of ride up back of head when laid out on road bike but never has interfered with function of headphones and after awhile you get used to that. No issues what soever on the trail bicycle.My main concern is safety and these allow me to hear approaching traffic. Get them on sale for a good buy, just like all eletronics, don't pay full retail price!

    I love these headphones. For my use, it's perfect. I use it at work and in my job I need to wear earplugs. This headphone allows me to listen to music while still protecting my hearing with earplugs in. I hardly know the headphones are on my head as it's light and comfortable. The sound quality is not your Bose sound but it will generate a nice sound when earplugs are used. Without earplugs the volume will be limited and maybe hard to hear in certain noisy conditions. The battery life is excellent. The only bad thing is when I use it for phone calls the surrounding noise is a distraction for the other person on the call. The speaker is very sensitive to the ambient noise. I would recommend these for most people that want to try something different. Also recommended for those that want to hear things going on around them and still be able to listen to music in the background.
