In a house with three children adjusting to living all together in a new house leaves me in search of my music some days. I listen to music while I work at the computer and when I would go for my run. I had the name brand comes with the smartphone earbuds but they hurt my ears. I have a hard time finding earbuds and headphones that work for my small ear holes. I also can't be completely comfortable running with regular style earbuds in and not able to hear surrounding traffic and my motivating music at the same time. I also like to still be able to hear the doorbell or the kids while I'm jamming out and working at the computer. When baby Kaylee is born I will need to keep an ear out for her while I'm working too. Now thanks to the Aftershokz Trekz titanium wireless headphones I can do and enjoy it all.
What makes the Aftershokz Trekz so great for my family? These headphones are bone conduction headphones which means they wrap around your head but don't go inside your ears, they sit more in front of your ears.
I can wear the Aftershokz Trekz while cooking and still hear the kids around me. I can wear the Treks headphones while running and be able to hear traffic and what's going on around me while still listening to my music. My oldest can wear the Trekz while playing his video games and still hear me when he is called. He can also listen to his music while outside but still hear me when he is called to come in for the evening. With 5 of us in the van on road trips sometimes I want to listen to something else other than what the kids have on when I get the chance to be in the passenger seat so I can pull out the Aftershokz headphones and listen to music I like without complaints from the backseat and still hear them when I need to be referee to the backseat.
The Aftershokz Trekz wireless headphones come with a storage/ carry case, the user guide, micro USB charging cable, fitbands which are silicon bands that allows the adjustability to allow comfort for smaller head sizes, and earplugs for the times when you are in a place where it is safe and suitable to block out noise while still being able to use the Trekz Titanium by Aftershokz.
The Trekz are small and light. They have clips that go around your ears. My first concern with this type of headphones was that the band of the headphones would compete for space while I wear my glasses and make it uncomfortable and leave me unable to wear both at the same time. I tried headphones on first then my glasses and then tried glasses on first with the Trekz headphones rested on top of them and wearing the Trekz under my glasses was the more comfortable option for me. Not having the feel and pain of earbuds in my ears was great though it did take a couple days of wearing the Trekz to find my comfort level with the volume to where I could listen to the music and make phone calls and not be annoyed by the vibration that you can sometimes feel if the volume is high. The headphones are wireless so you just have to charge it up, turn it on, and sync it to Bluetooth and pair it up. You'll know it's pairing to your device when the LED light flashes red and blue and then turn blue and Audrey Says (TM) will say "connected". If it has a full charge you can get about 6 hours of continuous use and on stand by the battery charge lasts about a week to a week and a half.
