Heifers! It's been a hot minute since I've posted a product review - next up on the chopping block is a product I never even wanted. Truth be told, my husband bought these for me for the holidays last year, and I didn't even try them. I took them back, thinking they weren't my jam. My thing. Up my heifer alley.
Well, BOY WAS I WRONG!!
You guys know I harp on safety safety safety, right? If not, guess what? SAFETY FIRST!
I listen to music while I run, but it's always blaring out of my SpiBelt, for all the world to hear. I've been told more than once that "your music is too loud!" Which is fine - because I'm a slow runner anyway and normally I'm all by my lonesome while running after my friends, trying hopelessly to catch them.
They're fast. I can't catch them.
So listening to music wasn't really an issue given that I'm always alone out there. Did I mention alone?
Well, lo and behold, my speed is slowly increasing (shocker!) and I wanted to run alongside my friends. But that pesky Eminem music I listen to sometimes bugs them.
So when I was given the opportunity to test out a pair, legit-like, I was all over it. I mean, WHY NOT!! It was time, it was karma. It was in the cards. Time for me to get hip, and be the cool heifer I've always wanted to be.
Enter, AfterShokz headphones. They're bone conducting headphones. What's that mean? Let's see what their WEBSITE says about these amazing little headphones:
The lightweight and comfortable Trekz Titanium wireless stereo headphones are the safest alternative to traditional sport headphones and earbuds. Bone conduction technology, an open ear design and a suite of convenient features deliver premium music play and crystal clear calling without compromise. Designed with athletes in mind, Trekz Titanium are sweatproof, secure, and will allow you to hear your surroundings - no matter where life takes you.
The thing is - they actually WORK. Not only can you hear the music (with AMAZING sound quality I might add) but you can hear EVERY SINGLE THING around you. You can hear your own breathing, you can hear your footsteps as you crunch on leaves (ok in Phoenix, we don't really have leaves to crunch on, but when you accidentally step on and squish a sunbathing lizard, you can hear that too).
You can REALLY hear everything around you AND the music. It's like magic, I tell you.
They're lightweight and they come in a multitude of super-cool colors.
Do yourself a favor - get some. You will RUNSAFE, and you will be so happy you did!
