Product Information

  • Overview

    Thanks to wireless bone-conduction technology, the AfterShokz Bluez 2 Headphones let you enjoy your music without tuning out from the world around you. Using AfterShokz's OpenFit design, the headphones guide mini vibrations through your cheekbones to your inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering your ears.

    Exceptionally lightweight and comfortable, the open-ear listening experience is further enriched through innovative technologies like PremiumPitch - dual-suspension transducers that guarantee high-quality bone-conduction audio. Meanwhile, LeakSlayer significantly reduces natural sound leakage.

    Connecting to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad via Bluetooth, the headphones allow wireless freedom that doesn't have to be plagued by traditional limits. Confidently stash your mobile device anywhere on your body - or even just somewhere nearby - without the inconvenience of signal drops and music skips.

    Built for the mobile and active lifestyle, AfterShokz Bluez 2 are nanotechnology-treated to repel sweat, and have dual microphones to ensure crystal-clear voice communication. Offering six hours of play time per charge, the headphones also come with optional reflective safety strips that will increase visibility in darkness.

However, depending on how crowded the gym is, you will hear a bit of gym noise in the background since these aren't in ear headphones. With that said, for bone conducting headphones that are wireless, they're surprisingly good. When you raise the volume up really loud, you'll feel the base and the headphones start bouncing on your temple. It'll actually tickle a little.

    Since they don't slide in your ear, sweat doesn't build up. Also, you're aware of your surroundings and are able to hold a conversation while still listening to music. The battery lasts pretty long, I worked out with a full charge for 2 hours, went home and purposely left it off the charger to see how much juice it would have the next day, the headphones beeped "battery high", so I was pretty stoked about that. I don't feel like I wasted a hundred dollars, yet, at least.

Perhaps I misinterpreted the packaging, but there i Picked these up on a whim while shopping for my first-ever bluetooth earbuds. Perhaps I misinterpreted the packaging, but there is no magic here. The "wireless bone conduction headphones" lingo made me think that there wouldn't be any sound coming out of the speakers for people around me to hear. Unless you have the volume very low (like, sleeping baby in the room next to you low), anyone standing near you can hear the music. . . which makes them more like personal speakers than earphones. As for fit/comfort, I found them a bit tight, and there was a strong vibration pulsing with the music--kind of a multimedia experience, but in a bad way. I had them on for about 30 seconds, and when I took them off, my head and jaw felt very strange. Perhaps others would get used to it, but I can't imagine keeping them on for very long.

    For the sake of the review, I thought I would test them for a phone call. They were slightly better for conversation than music. I called my mom, and her voice was tinny. She said that she could hear me, but that my voice was tinny as well. We chatted about five minutes, and she asked me if I could take the headphones off and talk to her "normal." When I did take the headphones off, I had that not-so-good jaw feeling again. Note that I wear a bluetooth headset (plantronics) for phone calls at my job all day long, so I am accustomed to having something on my head. This is a different feeling. . . and kind of pre-headachey.

    The one positive thing I can say is that they have good range; I walked 25 steps away from my phone during the call before the quality got scratchy. If you don't have a lot of motor sensitivity in your head, and you're looking for a way to hear both your music/phone call PLUS outside ambient noise (safety? not sure why else), you might find these interesting. But from the packaging, price, and availability at the Apple Store, I expected something more impressive.

Anything with much bass causes a slight buzzing near the ear that might put off some users.

    I was unable to install the "Adjustable Tension Band" and just tossed it out of frustration. It really isn't necessary anyway unless you would be really bouncing around.

    There are numerous safety reasons to use these particularly for bikers and runners who need to hear what's going on around them.

    This is my first pair of Bluetooth headphones. I generally consider them to be too costly at >$100 and my experience with Bluetoot This is my first pair of Bluetooth headphones. I generally consider them to be too costly at >$100 and my experience with Bluetooth leads me to think that sound fidelity will not be very good. So, at $100, these met my budgetary requirement and, quite frankly, I was curious about this bone conducting technology. I agree with others who have commented that, at high volume, the thumping on the TMJ/cheek can be weird/unpleasant. I find it more weird than annoying and think I can get used to it, so I'm not dinging these so much on that point. Sound quality is marginal. They sure don't provide the fidelity of even $50 wired headphones. But, they're not awful, either. The Bluetooth pairs easily and well. The controls are unobtrusive and easy to learn. It recharges quickly. For the most part, It's comfortable. So, all-in-all, they're okay. I'm still not sure that I'll keep them, but I would recommend them to some people depending on their needs and likes. Some would hate them, however. And I get that.

I was looking for Bluetooth head phones. When I saw these I was amazed. It's Bluetooth, water resistant and has a 2 year warranty. The sound quality is good, but there are plenty of better. You should be buying these if you are an active gym participant or want to be able to hear your surroundings such as a jog in your block.
