I have a fun (and pink!) review for y’all today. A few weeks ago Aftershokz sent me a pair of their Trekz Titanium Pink headphones to review… Wireless PINK headphones? I was pumped to give ’em a try!
Before I get into my review, here is a quick overview of Aftershokz:
AfterShokz launched in 2011, bringing patented bone conduction technology to the consumer electronics industry with their unique headphones. What sets AfterShokz headphones apart from any other brand is the unique open ear design, allowing users to remain aware of their surroundings while they listen to premium stereo sound. AfterShokz headphones are Bluetooth enabled, wireless (woohoo!), and they allow you to listen to music and/or take a phone call all while being able to listen to your surroundings.
When I look for a pair of headphones to use while working out, my primary focus is running because that is when I’ll be using them! I need my headphones to stay in place, be lightweight, preferably be wireless, provide great sound while allowing me to stay tuned into my surroundings (you know, to avoid getting hit by a car, LOL).
I’m happy to report that the Trekz Titanium Pink headphones meet all of my requirements and then some! The headphones are not only pink (!!!), but they are super lightweight. I would actually forget I was wearing them if it weren’t for the music in my ears ;) Even though they are feather light, they don’t move out of place which I love. I don’t need to adjust my ear pieces at all when using my Aftershokz. The design makes it super easy to switch between music and my phone… not that I would need to chat on the phone while running but it’s nice to keep my options open. And – as safety is most important – I like that I can still hear the outdoors (and my running partner) while listening to music. I am always nervous wearing headphones while running as it is very important to be able to hear your surroundings. Thankfully, with my Aftershokz, I don’t have to choose between my tunes and safety!
I give the Trekz Titanium Pink headphones TWO thumbs up! They’re cute. They’re easy to use. They sound fantastic. And they promote a safe running experience. WOOHOO!
