I have exclusively ran in Aftershokz headphones for the last year and I cannot imagine running in anything else! I first learned about Aftershokz headphones from my husband who had bought a pair of the Titanium headphones for himself. He let me borrow them for a few of my runs and I was hooked. My favorite thing about Aftershokz is that their headphones deliver sound through bone conduction. What does bone conduction mean? Transducers send mini vibrations through the cheekbones and deliver sound directly to the inner ear, bypassing the eardrum. This leaves your ears open to experience your surrounding environment.
The biggest benefit of bone conduction headphones is that they allow you to hear what’s going on around you. Aftershokz headphones deliver excellent sound quality (which is important to me, especially when running gets tough and I need to dig deep into my music to keep going!) while also making it possible to hear what’s happening around you (also important for safety reasons!). Another benefit of bone conduction headphones is that you do not have to put anything into your ear when using them. I find earbud type headphones to be very uncomfortable. I had tried so many different types of headphones and had never found a pair that I had considered comfortable until I tried Aftershokz.
So when I heard about Aftershokz Give Good Vibez campaign I knew I wanted to be involved! If you follow me on social media (and if you don’t, you should be!) you have seen me post about this awesome campaign. Aftershokz offered a BOGO sale for Black Friday last month. If you purchased a pair of the Aftershokz Aeropex wireless headphones you received a pair of openbox Titanium wireless headphones for free! This was the perfect opportunity to gift a pair of Aftershokz this holiday season!!
I was so excited to receive my Give Good Vibez BOGO Aftershokz headphones! I wanted to get them out of the box and charging so that I could get out and get a run in with them, only to find that they come out of the box fully charged. I had been running in the smaller size Titanium headphones because the larger size had felt too big for my head and bounced slightly when I ran. I was slightly worried about how the Aeropex would fit as there was not a smaller size offered and I was delighted to find that these fit perfectly and did not bounce at all when I ran in them.
Other features of the Aeropex headphones include:
- Comes in 4 different colors–black, gray, blue and red
- 2 year warranty
- 8 hour battery life
- Connects easily to your phone with Bluetooth technology
- Easy to pause music or skip songs easy to reach button
- Sweat proof and waterproof
- Strong magnetic charging cable for easy charging
- Dual noise canceling mic
- Wireless range is 33 feet
- Lightweight (and no bouncing while you run!)
- Cost: $159.95
Now to the best part of the campaign…. the Give Good Vibez part!!! When I found out that I would also be receiving a pair of open box Titanium headphones, I knew exactly who I wanted to gift them to! This summer my kids met Amara. She was a junior counselor at their summer camp and they all love her. I later learned that she has cystic fibrosis. She was recently hospitalized, missing a Luke Bryan concert that she had tickets to for her birthday. To make it worse the concert had been rescheduled due to weather and she had been healthy and was ready to attend on the original date. Instead of being upset and complaining she took to social media and launched a campaign to get Luke Bryan to visit her and the other children at the hospital. This was unsuccessful but not due to her lack of work and spirit! She also volunteers at her school and is currently the manager for the swim team.
We saw Amara recently when she did some babysitting for us and gifted her the headphones! My daughter has a special relationship with her and so she presented the Titanium headphones to her and told her all the features. (Even my 6 year old is an Aftershokz fan!) Amara was excited to receive that headphones and will put them to good use! It was so fun to Give Good Vibez this holiday season with Aftershokz.
