AfterShokz Bluez 2 open ear wireless headphones combine the convenience, reliability and performance of Bluetooth wireless connectivity with the comfort and safety of open ear bone conduction technology to provide consumers with an entirely new way to stay connected. Unlike conventional Bluetooth headphones and earbuds that use the eardrums to transmit sound, Aftershokz Bluez headphones utilize patent pending bone conduction technology to deliver sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ear. This enables anyone using them to make/take phone calls and stay connected to both what they are listening to and the outside world - from warning sounds outdoors while walking or driving to a nearby colleague in an office setting.
We can’t say we invented bone conduction, but our technological enhancements certainly push its boundaries. Our patented design guides mini vibrations through your cheekbones to your inner ears, delivering stereo sound without plugging or covering them. Sound waves travel directly to the cochlea, bypassing the eardrums completely—an alternative for anyone concerned about potential hearing damage caused by traditional headphones and ear buds, and even a solution for those with certain forms of hearing loss.
Most bluetooth devices are designed for use in one ear, but AfterShokz Bluez sit comfortably in front of the ears and provide listeners with a stereophonic sound experience. The innovative and elegantly simple design of AfterShokz Bluez open ear headphones is built around a beautifully designed, highly ergonomic, extremely stable, one-piece warparound headband. The open ear design and the light weight of AfterShokz Bluez make them extremely comfortable and stable, even when used over extended periods of time.
Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process—sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. We've taken the concept to the next level through development of a suite of proprietary audio technologies and design patents. The result: headphones that deliver unrivalled situational awareness and comfort.
Transducers guide mini vibrations through the cheekbones to the inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering them.
It doesn’t seem sensible that audio travelling through your bones instead of your ears could be so finely tuned. It wouldn’t be possible without our PremiumPitch technology, which assures the finest in bone conduction audio, with a range that suits music and voice.
Durably designed to withstand high-impact activities, these headphones will power through daily sweat sessions and wicked weather. A nanotechnology coating and watertight rubber gaskets repel sweat and moisture from the inside out.
Natural sound leakage is a common drawback found with most all headphones and earbuds, especially at high volumes. LeakSlayer was designed to release sound generated by the transducers in order to cancel sound generated by the housing, significantly reducing leakage, even when compared to traditional headphones and earbuds.

These have been great for commuting into work in the morning. I have a 15 mile rural commute which I ride on my road bike. Listening to music or the radio through my phone in the early mornings is a game changer - the ride in is so much more enjoyable. With regular headphones this is just not safe, but with these on, I can hear approaching traffic. The best comparison is that these are like having the radio on in the background (with extremely clear, high quality music), rather than headphones overpowering all other sound

Got a pair of these last week, and I'm really impressed with them. Works perfectly with my phone and my iPod alike, including the controls for volume etc. on the headset itself, which is really useful as you don't need to fiddle with your device. Especially useful for cycling as you can hear what's coming through the headset whilst also being able to hear everything that's going on around you, so you're not exposing yourself to increased danger by not being able to hear trucks/buses/cars and other hazards. The angle of them fits quite well with my helmet as well, and I imagine they'd be flexible enough when it comes to other helmets. They've even got a little tension strap for people with smaller heads! Well worth it =)
