With bone conduction headphones, you can take your tunes along without shutting down the rest of the world.
We love new technology, particularly when it relates to sports and recreation, so we were excited to discover a new type of headphone that’s well suited to an active lifestyle.
Many consider music an essential part of the sporting life. What could be better than a morning at the fishing hole with music keeping you company? Or maybe you fuel workouts with hard-driving tunes. Or perhaps you enjoy hiking under a starry sky while old melodies trigger memories. Whatever way you take your music, you probably listen through headphones.
Headphones come in various configurations. There are in-ear types, like the earbuds that came packaged with your smart phone. Then there are over-ear versions that work something like a pair of ear muffs. The principal disadvantage of both types is they prevent your hearing anything other than the music, since access to your ear is blocked. That can be dangerous. Fortunately, a solution is now available: bone conduction headphones from AfterShokz. And you’ll find them at Dunham’s.
Here’s How It Works
Sound is transmitted to the inner ear two different ways, through the ear canal and eardrums and through the bones. AfterShokz has developed proprietary audio technology that utilizes bone conductivity to deliver precise, pure sound without blocking the ear canal. Utilizing a concept called PremiumPitch+™, AfterShokz tunes the audio signal and transmits it in the form of mini vibrations through the cheek bones surrounding your ears. You don’t feel the vibration any more than you feel the vibration of your eardrum, but you hear dynamic sound with deep, rich bass.
You also hear all that is going on around you. Unlike in-ear or over-ear headphones, bone conduction headphones allow you to maintain situational awareness, an important benefit for anyone engaged in physical activity. For example, runners wearing AfterShokz bone conduction headphones can hear a car overtaking from behind, and a fisherman can hear the splash of a bass breaking the surface or a ski boat approaching.
Wireless or Wired
Dunham’s offers two AfterShokz models. Trekz Titanium headphones are a wireless design that is available in both Slate Grey and Ocean Blue. Lightweight and comfortable, they are sweatproof and secure. Arcing over the ears, they stay in place even in vigorous activity. Your music will be dynamic and your phone calls crystal clear for up to six hours on a single charge.
Also available is the affordable Sportz Titanium wired model in Onyx Black. Equipped with a microphone, the lightweight headphones deliver a superb audio experience while keeping you fully connected to your world and your environment for as long as 12 hours on one charge.
It’s brilliant new technology from AfterShokz, and it’s available now at Dunham’s.
