For a long time, sports headphones suffered from an agonising trade-off between safety and quality. In 2001, Voxtech saw an opportunity to put an end to all that using patented bone conduction technology. First developed for military special operations and law enforcement, they gave the technology a new lease of life. AfterShokz headphones deliver premium stereo sound with a unique completely open ear design. This ensures a level of safety and comfort that is second to none at a price point that is affordable. Since its inception in 2011, the company has been committed to innovation and making situational awareness a priority. This year, AfterShokz released two new generation products: Aeropex and Xtrainerz.
Aeropex uses bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ear through the skull, bypassing the eardrum completely. They are placed on the cheekbones, just in front of your ears. By leaving the ear canal free, it is possible to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds, teammates, coaches, and more whilst you enjoy music or podcasts. Bluetooth® connectivity leaves you completely wireless, working with your phone up to 10m away.
Designed to withstand even intense training, Aeropex are IP67 approved making them fully water- and sweat-proof. This allows you to run come rain, sun or snow! Tilting at a 30-degree angle towards your face to stop vibrations, the Aeropex are integrated with Premium Pitch 2+ sound to deliver the best possible audio experience to every user.
Our next innovation, the Xtrainerz have been designed with swimmers in mind. They are waterproof to IP68 standard, which means they can be submerged in up to 2 metres of water for up to 2 hours. But these are not only headphones, they also store music for you. 4GB, or up to 1,200 songs worth, in fact. This means you can stash away your mobile phone as the music swims with you. Just hook up your headphones to a Mac or PC, and upload all your favourite tunes.
We have reduced transducer size and sound leakage by 50% compared to previous models. This improves both comfort and discretion.Bring them with you running, cycling, or wherever the mood takes you. After all, with 8 hours of playback capability, that’s plenty of time for all manner of adventures!
