Before I get into reviewing the Air, let me repost my review of the Trekz Titanium which I loved

I love the technology of these headphones, being able to hear things while still getting my music is amazing, but I went over that in my previous blog, so I will just tell you more about the air and what makes them different and to me better.

First off, they are lighter, which is so much more comfortable on the ears, in fact they are 20% lighter.  Also, the sound is better, now I have been biking more because of my knee issues, so I have mostly been indoors, but the sound just seems so much better and crisper than the titanium.  I have gotten to run with them as well, and they do bounce way less and again, don’t hurt the ears 31688200_10211481630496736_5472659904227442688_o

They do now come in colors, though I believe they are currently sold out, so just get the regular airs and you will love them.  The comfort of these and the safety they provide just really can’t be beat.  I also have a link for you to save $30 off a pair for yourself go to

bibrave.aftershokz.com

Better get to it, cause they probably will sell out.

You really can’t go wrong with either one, and I will say, when I first tried them, I was skeptical, but I am a believer and I will never use another type of head phone again, these are perfect

I won’t lie, when I first got these I was pretty skeptical.  Would I really hear the sound well?  Would they bother my ears?

So, I tried them out, and well, I love them, especially for my early morning runs.  At first they did rub the top of my ears a bit, but they come with some rubber things to put around them, and that helped stop that.  I love that I can hear my music but still hear everything going on around me, which is so important when you are running at 0 dark 30 every morning.  These headphones do NOT go in your ears, at all, here is the blurb about how that all works

THE AFTERSHOKZ WAY

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 unrivaled situational awareness and comfort.

HOW THEY WORK

Transducers guide mini vibrations through the cheekbones to the inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering them.

And it works, great, the only issue I have found is for races, first time I used them at a race I wasn’t sure they were on because the noise of race starts is so loud, but, still didn’t mind it, and was nice to be able to hear everything through out the race.

I have had no issues with sweat or moving, and it has been very humid here and I haven’t had a problem at all.

If you are a runner or any athlete who does your thing outdoors, especially in the dark, I would highly recommend getting these, they are super worth it, just for the safety factor.

If you do decide to get some, awesome, go here http://bibrave.aftershokz.com/.

and use code FREECASE to get yourself a nice case to go with your fancy new headphones.
