Disclaimer: I received a pair of AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to find and write race reviews!
I have reviewed AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones before, and recently when AfterShokz released a range of new colors, I got a second pair in Midnight Blue. I’m glad, because my original slate grey Trekz Air headphones kept disappearing every time my wife went to the gym. 🤣
In the relatively short time since I last reviewed the Trekz Air, I’ve noticed the headphones popularity explode in the various running facebook groups that I frequent. They are definitely becoming something of a runner’s staple.
I’m also noticing that a lot of races that previously banned headphones for safety reasons DO permit bone conduction headphones. This is huge for AfterShokz — their bone conduction technology is the best out there.
It terms of weight, battery life, build quality, and safety, AfterShokz really deliver. My original pair of Trekz Air are still like brand new. The charge still lasts well over a week’s worth of running and gym visits.
As for comfort, nothing has changed there for me. There’s no bounce, or noticeable movement while running or exercising. So this time I did some more in-depth scientific testing. I wanted to ensure it even stayed put on little heads. My wee assistant, Xander, was only too happy to help.
Check out the results below (from my Instagram channel).
The good news is that you can now grab a pair of Trekz Air headphones for less money than before. The Trekz Air headhones are currently $149 from the AfterShokz website.
Alternatively, you can use code BRBUNDLE and get the $50 off the Trekz Air Adventure Bundle at bibrave.aftershokz.com.
