    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.

    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 a comfortable fit

    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.

    Idea seems cool. I was eager to try these on. They don’t sound very good. You’re constantly wondering why your didn’t just get regular headphones. For $100 you can get a better workout headphone OR better studio sound headphones or even better just behind the ear Bluetooth headphones. There are better choices out there don’t make the same mistake I did.

    AfterShokz Trekz Titanium review

    I purchased the AfterAhokz Trekz Titanium after my Beats PowerBeats3 Wireless ideas prematurely. These are comfortable and reasonably priced but they are subpar as far as sound. At best they sound like an old AM transistor radio from 40-50 years ago. They will be returned to the store. I don’t recommend these to anyone until they are $25.00 or less.

    these are comfortable and sound good if there is no ambient noise. I bought these to mow the lawn and they were useless. Couldn't hear them at all. They are more comfortable to wear than the normal style but if there is other noise around forget it unless you are wearing ear plugs which defeats the whole purpose.

    I get that these have awesome technology and are super cool. I wanted them to be bale to listen to podcast and make phone calls while ridding my bike. I didn't want to use regular headphones so that I could hear my surroundings still. The audio quality is just awful though, even for just spoken word, I had to return them.

    Everything about this product is great except for the fact that you can’t adjust the head band. It was too big for my head/neck, I’m an average sized female. I couldn’t look up or perform weighted squats without them moving. I would recommend this product to a large male or a female with a huge head.

    Vibrate when turned up

    If you are in a quiet environment and don't have to turn the volume up very high they are fine. If you work in a noisy environment like I do and have to turn up the volume, they vibrate against the side of your head. I had to return them. very disappointing. I had high hopes for these headphones.

    On paper, these were EXACTLY what I was looking for. But they did not fit my head good at all. And forget wearing them with a jacket as they constantly hit the jacket collar and moved- very annoying. Sound was not bad considering you can still hear what’s going on around you- which is why I gave them 2 stars instead of 1.

    I expected that there would be no noise coming out of this device because it needed the bone to conduct the noise. But u can have it around ur neck turn up the volume. So everyone can hear ur telephone conversation and what it listening to.

    They worked great at first, but have always been too tight fitting. Started with sound distortions in the third week when turning head or looking up and down. In the next week started disconnecting at random. In the next week it disconnected and will not reconnect or pair up again.

    I expected to love this. It was just too big for my head and I couldn’t adjust the size. It worked really well when I first set it up but the next day it wouldn’t sync with my phone. The battery didn’t last very long either.

    The idea for this headset is on point and would have been great, but the application leaves much to be desired. Overall the fit is awkward, not comfortable and not something I could “adjust to”

    I have a small head so these flopped around. They are geared more towards someone with say a man sized head. I am a small stature. They didn't fit my head good, but sound quality is good

    Ended up returning these and going back to my Beats in ears. These were very uncomfortable, put to much pressure on your temples and brought very quick headaches

    Picked this headset because they looked cool. Resizing them is an issue and they constantly go back to their original size and come off my ears. Sound was decent when they stayed in place.

    The microphone is not as good as advertised. Most people who I have spoken to can't hear me because of the microphone

    The sound was good but were uncomfortable for me. The pressure that holds then on was a bit excessive for me.

    Wearing these made my ears hurt after awhile and I could not wear them. Sound quality was fine. Just were uncomfortable.
