I wear tested the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium wireless bone conducting headphones today and I am sold on them! And that is saying something since I have always been the white iPhone earphones wearer because I am technologically handicapped.
EASY TO SET UP-Paring the headset to my ihone was simple and worked on the first try. What was cool is that I had a phone call on my run down the Greenway and I answered it with a simple press of a button and I had a nice conversation with no issues from the headset. And when it was time to hang up, I pressed the same button and it ended the call; it’s really simple to use. The way this headset works is that the Trekz delivers high quality sound by vibration through the bone/cartilage around your ear. It eliminates the need of a conventional headset to sit in your ears.
SOUND QUALITY-I was thinking my run would be thrown off because I run with my music blaring so that I can’t hear my breathing or my feet hitting the ground. But to my surprise, the Treks delivered a quality sound that was loud enough to drown out the sounds of my heavy breathing. I could hear my feet hitting the ground still and other important sounds like bicycles and people just being friendly and saying hello! Lastly, I was hesitant about the fit.
COMFORT-I figured it would bounce around and drive me crazy. I am happy to report that my Treks Titanium headset didn’t bounce around at all. In fact, I recall my iPhone white headphones slipping from my ears as I became sweatier and the wires would inevitably get tangled. The Trekz also comes in a Mini so it will fit smaller heads too.
Overall, I am really psyched about my new Aftershokz headset, and with the new hands free driving law in Georgia, the timing could not be more perfect!
