Okay, we all know I absolutely loved my AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones so when I got the opportunity to test out the newer and lighter Air headphones, I couldn’t pass it up.
Very similar to their counterpart, the AfterShokz Trekz Air are (1) waterproof and ideal for all types of weather, (2) the battery lasts for 6 hours (although I swear I’ve only charged them once and it’s been more than that), and (3) they rest over your ears using bone conduction technology so the sound is delivered through your cheekbones, ensuring your ears remain completely open to hear everything around you.
While I will never speak poorly about the Titaniums, the Airs do have a leg up because of their weight. Boasting a 20% lighter design, the Airs even look thinner (which I will be honest and say I was scared I would break them in my bag, thankfully they come with a carrying case). This was huge considering the temperatures are starting to plummet and headphones tend to bother me when it’s colder out. Yet the the lightweight of the Airs made them tolerable during my recent hour-long-run.
The design of the Airs is also a bit different making them more comfortable and providing more ease when wearing things such as hats, visors, earmuffs, etc. as shown below (along with my superfly Boco Gear BibRave visor). Long story short, get the headphones. They’re the best in the game and won’t disappoint.
