Shokz: The Best Running Headphones


Shokz, or Aftershokz as they were formally known, are a premium sport headphones brand. Combining excellent technological and audiological running headphones solutions with stylish, comfortable devices makes Shokz one of the biggest and best sports headphones brands available today. Running on a treadmill or running in a gym, you need headphones which are secure but also safe. With Shokz’ patented technology, you get all of that and so much more.

Safety-Conscious Sports Headphones

A majority of those working out in gyms, parks, or streets enjoy listening to music or podcasts as both a distraction and motivation during activity. This can easily lead to situations where hearing is compromised in our surroundings. There are many situations where compromised hearing is relatively innocuous - a friend shouting in the gym, a loud ice cream truck in the park. There are many situations where hearing issues can however be hazardous, such as car horns or emergency sirens.

It is hard to find the balance between retaining awareness of your surroundings and maintaining volume to enjoy your sounds. Shokz’ range of running headphones however provide industry-leading solutions to help keep you safe and in musical nirvana.

Bone Conduction Technology

Shokz’ sport headphones use patented bone conduction technology to transmit sound. Traditional headphones & earphones use speakers within the ears or buds to transmit sound vibrations directly into the ears.

The bone conduction technology from Shokz instead transmits sound via vibrations through the cheekbones, delivering sound directly to your ear but bypassing the eardrum. Shokz also improve comfort, as there is nothing plugged in or covering your ears. A clean, hygienic way to listen to music or more during sports.
