1- I would use them for cycling. Would they be comfortable with a helmet and sunglasses?
2- Would they actually allow me to listen to music, and hear cars and my surroundings.
Here's the answers. They are very comfortable, and they fit under my helmet and with my sunglasses. (see photos)
- Sound quality is not as good as headphones, but definitely good enough to enjoy my music.
- I can hear my surroundings. If I turn my volume all the way up, it does, obviously, make it more difficult to hear traffic.
- Phone calls: I can hear callers and they can hear me.
Bottom-line for me, they allow me to listen to music and still hear my surroundings. They stay in place, handle all the sweat I can throw at them, have great battery life, and don't lose connection no matter where, in my Jersey, I keep my phone.
They are a bit pricey, but so far I am very happy with them.
They stay on well of their own accord, without being too tight, although it might take some time for you to be accustomed to wearing them.
If you angle the headphones downward, you can lay down on flat ground without bending the headphones, which is good for certain exercises like sit-ups or leg-lifts.
There are some negative traits to the Trekz Air, however. The Bluetooth connection sometimes stutters when playing music. I am uncertain if this is a placebo effect, but placing my phone to my left side seems to lessen these occurrences. Additionally, I've discovered that the Trekz-Air is covered by a rubber-like skin, which is a discovery I found when that aforementioned layer began peeling off and bubbling. I am uncertain on whether it was caused by my sweat, any skin products like sunscreen, or the wipes I've used to clean the headphones with. However, this issue allowed me to utilize the warranty of the product, which Aftershokz upheld. I had registered my Trekz Air to the Aftershokz warranty website the day I received the product, and when I placed a warranty claim, Aftershokz allowed me to receive a replacement product after I had sent in my old Trekz Air headphones with a shipping label provided by the company. I conclude from that process that Aftershokz has great warranty service for the Trekz Air headphones. Additionally, the new headphones they've sent me also had a stuttering issue during media playback, suggesting that it occurs across all Trekz air headphones. The stuttering doesn't last long and doesn't occur frequently, so I am only mildly bothered by it.
My impression of the headphone is that it is convenient and serves its advertised purpose of allowing music listeners to hear their environment as well as the music they enjoy. There are some small flaws, but more often than not, they do not prevent me from enjoying the product.

I’ve struggled to find the right set of headphones, the Apple earpods have served me well but end up breaking because of sweat (minging). I had the same problem with Bose sports headphones having them replaced three times.
I tried a couple of wireless headphones and had issues with sound isolation (dangerous), wind noise and that weird thumping everytime your foot strikes the ground.
So I thought I’d try these. I’m really glad I did.
Very easy to setup, battery will last 4 or 5 hours, and they fit so well you forget you are wearing them - on my last 17 mile run I didn’t have to adjust them once.
Sound quality isn’t as good as in-ear headphones but that’s like saying a convertible car doesn’t handle as well as a hard top, different tools for different jobs. The sound is a little ‘tinny’, it lacks base and mid, but it’s something you only notice before you leave the house. Let’s face it, running headphones don’t have to have the best sound, they need good sound, good battery, comfort and not isolate you from your surroundings. I have my Bose QC35s if I want to immerse myself.
You can hear everything that goes on around you, and the direction it’s coming from.
The buttons need a little work, the press needs a more affirmative click - it’s tricky to find the button and know if you clicked it (while waiting for the digital blip for confirmation), especially with running gloves.
Fix the buttons and improve the sound a little more, and these would absolutely perfect. Even with these areas for improvement - we’ll worth the £150.
Die AfterShokz AS650 sind natürlich nicht billig bei dem Preis. Ich habe mich aber bewußt dafür entschieden. Muß aber alleine hinsichtlich Preis jeder für sich entscheiden, ob er für Musik unterwegs soviel ausgeben mag.
Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist absolut gut. Die Hörer sind sehr leicht, das Material angenehm, fühlt sich weich an, obwohl es hart ist. Schweißresistent.
Da sie ja auf den Wangenknochen aufliegen müssen, haben sie natürlich etwas Spannung. Die aber, zumindest bei mir, nicht drückend oder störend ist. Selbst nicht nach stundenlangem Tragen.
Die Bedienung ist einfach. Sind ja auch nur drei Tasten. Titel vor- und zurückspulen geht selbstverständlich auch. Es sind alle Funktionen dabei, die man benötigt. Wichtig auch die Stummschaltung.
Telefonieren ist einfach. Mit einem Fingerdruck auf die Multifunktionstaste ( linkes 'Ohr') annehmen und beenden. Oder ablehnen. Neuen annehmen und alten beenden, oder aktuellen in die Warteschleife schieben und den neuen bedienen. Mehr braucht es nicht.
Die Sprachqualität beim Telefonieren ist sehr gut. Auch das eigene gesprochene Wort wird sehr gut und fast ohne Nebengeräusche versandt. Man ist klar zu verstehen.
Hinsichtlich Musik kann man natürlich keinen absoluten Raumklang erwarten. Aber ich denke mal, für unterwegs erwartet das auch keiner. Aber die Höhen und Tiefen kommen trotzdem sehr gut rüber. Der eingebaute Equalizer verbessert das Ganze noch. Verbindet man das noch mit einem besseren Equalizer der Handy-App ist die Qualität sehr gut. Da man durch die offenen Ohren ja auch einen Teil der Außengeräusche wahrnimmt, bremst dies natürlich die Hörqualität etwas. Aber schließlich will man dies ja so, die Umgebung noch etwas hören! Der Packung liegen aber ein Paar Ohropax bei. ;-) Die Vibrationen, die ja für die Übertragung wichtig sind, spürt man absolut nicht.
Die Knochenschalltechnik ist ja nicht sooo bekannt. Da gibt es schon paar komische Blicke von anderen, weil die Ohren ja frei sind. Aber es funktioniert gut und wer noch nie etwas davon gehört hat, ist sehr überrascht über das Ergebnis.
Der Akku hält bei mir viel länger, als angegeben. Die Ladezeit ist recht flott.
Ich bin voll zufrieden und bereue den Kauf keine Minute. Und für unterwegs wird es bei mir auf alle Fälle bei "Bone Conduction", also Knochenschall, bleiben! Exellent und gut. Und mit vielen Vorteilen. Eben, weil man Umgebungsgeräusche mitbekommt. Eine blinde Freundin hatte mir den Tip gegeben. Für Blinde ist es ja sehr wichtig, daß sie die Umgebung hören können. Und trotzdem nicht auf vorgelesene Texte oder eben Musik vom Handy oder Tablet usw verzichten müssen, ohne andere damit zu stören.
Ich kann die AfterShokz AS650 jedenfalls absolut empfehlen!
Very much better than in-ear headphones for comfort, and not emitting as constant quiet hiss as some other bluetooth headphones do.
If you're lying down, the headband at the back gets in the way. No problem, just move it to the top of your head; the transducers work fine in different positions on your head.
Lack of a 'skip back' button control is rather a shame. I'd be using that far more often than skip forward, for instance when listening to podcasts after having paused due to an interruption. You need to skip back a bit just to get back into context.
Others have mentioned the transducers tickling. This only happens at high volumes, and almost never in my normal listening conditions.
They feel very well made and robust. Maybe spectacle frames could be made this way for durability and comfort, with a titanium alloy core coated with silicone rubber.
A limit of two devices maximum for pairing is rather low and something they might improve in future.
For audiophiles, the quality itself is about what you’d expect for something that doesn’t go in your ear, also the volume does not go that high and there’s no noise cancelling (but this isn’t a criticism, they’re supposed to do the direct opposite of cancelling outside noises)
By far the best thing about them is the comfort/ease of use. Normally with head bands you have to fiddle with your ear piece to get it on - not with these.
They are also very comfortable and don’t fall off for all the running/jumping.
Der Sound ist gut, Hi-Fi Qualität kann und will ich beim Sport nicht erwarten. Das faszinierende ist jedoch die Funktion. Ich höre die Musik wie mit einem normalen Kopfhörer, bekomme aber wirklich jedes Geräusch in der Umgebung mit. Das Höhrgefühl kann man kaum beschreiben, Umweltgeräusche und Musik sind sehr gut zu hören, beeinflussen sich aber nicht gegenseitig. Einzig wenn man an einer stark befahrenen Strasse läuft sind die Nebengeräusche, der Autolärm nervig und störend. In der Natur funktioniert beides aber wunderbar.
Von mir gibt es eine ganz klare Kaufempfehlung!
Only been on one outing with the dogs but they performed as I wanted. Yes, if a large truck or noisy bike passes by they drowned out the music but that’s the whole reason for these. Oh and I got a couple of funny looks but that may have not been the trekz!
On the downside, although they are very light I was surprised they felt slightly heavy when wearing them. I also expected the band to be closer to the back of my head. But both these issues were forgotten within 10 minutes of walking with them.
The buttons on them are also pretty small and it would have been nice to be able to distinguish them by touch when wearing them.
I can’t comment on battery life yet but but by holding one of the volume buttons when music is paused, a voice tells you if battery is high,medium or low. Although this is useful, personally I would prefer a % number, preferably when turning on (like my Bose) and off (the Bose doesn’t do this one either).
But these are minor quibbles - the product itself is excellent, extremely fit for purpose (mine at least!) and nn first impressions I would highly recommend them.
I will update this review in a couple of weeks when they have been thoroughly put through their paces!
UPDATE 20th Feb 2019: So been using these few months now and they continue to be an excellent purchase. I use them for around 60 - 90 mins 4 or 5 times a week when out with the dogs and I manage to get about 2 weeks between charges. A young lady interrupts the music to say 'Charge me!' when the battery is getting low, which was a bit of shock when it first happened! A nice feature nonetheless as it means I don't have to worry about constantly checking battery levels - altho this is possible using the battery widget on my iPhone. Still getting funny looks though - sometimes they appear tinged with sympathy - I assume people think I have some kind of hearing problem!! All in all, though, I would still recommend them to anybody.
However, the cord used to annoy me and more often than not, I’d not bother taking them.
I then decided to look into this bone conducting technology and after much debating and review reading, around 6 months, I bit the bullet and went for these.
They’ve blown me away with just how good they are at playing podcasts whilst literarily still be able to hear everything going on around me. The sound output just seems to blend into the surrounding audio, just like running with a friend and chatting, they really are superb.
I haven’t listened to music with them (I get distracted by the beat and subsequently end up running quicker from past experience) but I’m sure they’re equally as suitable for ensuring awareness of surroundings.
Coupled to good battery life, lightweight, comfortable and robust I’m looking forward to using these on many more longs runs.
They also have the ability to answer calls, which is an added bonus too.
definately i would recommend spendin the dough on these. i hav my pros and cons beloe in order of its value to me (most important/impressive first)
1. battery life was a suprise. feels as good as a garmin sports watch when i was expecting an apple watch battery life span
2. secure on the head. such a good fit great for running
3. sound quality. pretty good tbh
4. sound is loud enough and better than i had expected
1. sound bleeding could b an issue onna crowded bus/tube though not a problem inuntil you move past 50% volume on mobile for instance
1. if your lookin for a sports headphone. get one
2. if you love tech. get one
3. if you want something different. get one
I use them for running and am increasingly worried about safety and security while running. After a lot of research I decided to spend birthday money/vouchers on a bone conduction set.
After reading reviews I was prepared for reduced sound quality. I could not have been more wrong! They are light, comfortable, easy to pair and sound great. I may not be an audiophile but for me the quality is excellent, as good if not better than my previous in ear ones.
If you are worried about the size, there is a measuring tool on the Aftershokz website.
The sound is lacking in base, but that’s not a bad thing as I listen to audio books as well as music; they’re amazing for that purpose. Charging is good.
