Bone conduction headphones: Gimmick or godsend?

Although true wireless earbuds have been hogging the limelight as of late, there’s another breed of specialized wireless earphones garnering attention: bone conduction headphones.

These have deep-seated roots in the hearing aid industry, but naysayers and die-hard fans are abound. Let’s break down whether or not bone conduction headsets are a gimmick or something more.

Editor’s note: this article was updated on May 26, 2023, to update the formatting, expand the list of bone conduction headphones, and ensure all information is current.

How does bone conduction technology work?

Those with hearing issues may benefit from bone conduction headphones since they don’t rely solely on the eardrum.

The abridged version of bone conduction headphones is that they rest directly on the listener’s cheekbones. Unlike traditional headphones and earbuds, the eardrum doesn’t vibrate to pass the information along to the cochlea. Instead, the vibrations from the bone conduction bee-lines for the cochlea.

Due to the lack of eardrum involvement, this technology is good for people with hearing deficiencies, as the bone conduction vibration acts in lieu of the eardrum.

Why you shouldn’t get bone conduction headphones

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

While these bone conduction headphones don’t have many features, they can connect to two source devices simultaneously.

Bone conduction nay-sayers harp on the importance of isolation, but it’s more than repetition for the sake of repetition; it makes an audible difference. Insulating your eardrums from outside clamor benefits clarity because a good seal mitigates auditory masking. What’s more, if your eardrum isn’t being used, transmission accuracy is compromised. You’ll get the gist of your media playback, but audio quality is severely degraded.

If audio quality matters to you at all, avoid bone conduction cans.

Sound quality aside, the fit may be uncomfortable. Let’s take the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium, one of the more popular options; it rests atop your cheekbones and balances its weight on a small portion of your ears. It’s hard to maintain a stable fit when walking, let alone when doing more vigorous activities like running.

Those who fall into this camp believe they’re paying more for less. The concept is novel, but real-world use reveals many deficiencies. Of course, there are always two sides to a coin.

Why you should get bone conduction headphones

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

The Aeropex is a great option for athletes of all stripes.

All right, so consumers in favor of bone conduction headphones champion the technology for safety reasons and because it’s beneficial for those who are hard of hearing. Regarding the former, being aware of your surroundings during outdoor workouts is a necessity, especially for runners. Since these don’t seal around or even touch the ear canal, they allow you to hear other pedestrians, passing cars, and other potential hazards.

What’s more, if you suffer from hearing loss and use hearing aids, bone conduction headphones are a viable option. While conventional earbuds and headphones may interfere with or jostle hearing aids, bone conduction headphones bypass this. Additionally, listeners who are deaf in one ear may enjoy stereo sound that can’t be heard with traditional in-ears. Bone conduction headphones give certain listeners a sense of hearing that may otherwise be unavailable to them.

Bone conduction headphones are great if you live in a city and want to remain aware of traffic while walking or cycling.

Although audiophiles likely won’t be endorsing bone conduction headphones anytime soon, the fact remains that they serve a purpose for those with impaired hearing. To call them a complete gimmick would be oversimplifying the technology and its various use cases. Yet, to call them the best thing since the TRRS plug would be a severe exaggeration. Plenty of great wireless earbuds provide better audio quality if your hearing ability is unimpaired. If you are someone who experiences hearing loss, bone conduction headphones are a great option.

What are the best bone conduction headphones?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

This type of headphone is great for runners and outdoor athletes.

You’ll notice that Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) makes most of the bone conduction headphones around. Shokz has a real hold on this niche market, and many third-party options fall short of Shokz’ offerings. Below are some of my favorite bone conduction headphones:

  • Shokz OpenRun ($129 at Amazon): These are currently the best set of bone conduction headphones for most people, and they’re a rebrand on the famed AfterShokz Aeropex. With the Shokz OpenRun, you get Bluetooth 5.1, 8th-gen bone conduction technology, and fast charging. Unfortunately, you have to deal with the company’s proprietary two-pin connector, but there are worse things.
  • Shokz OpenRun Pro ($179 at Amazon): If you want the best pair of bone conduction headphones regardless of price, get the OpenRun Pro. These headphones come with a mobile app, and audio output is less likely to change dramatically as jaw movement displaces the OpenRun Pro.
  • Shokz OpenMove ($79 at Amazon): For the best budget bone conduction headphone from Shokz, I recommend the Open Move. Unlike the company’s other headphones, these charge via USB-C. You get an IP55 dust- and water-resistant build along with multipoint connectivity.

To see the rest of your options, check out our list of the best bone conduction headphones.

What are some good open earbuds you can buy instead?

Sony’s silicone loop fins are really important for getting a secure fit.

The Sony LinkBuds ($178 at Amazon) are great open earbuds that don’t seal your ear canals. This kind of fit is more akin to traditional wireless earbuds than bone conduction headphones, and the earbuds still occlude your ear canals a bit. We like that Sony provides interchangeable ear wings for a more secure fit, so you can throw your head around without shaking the buds loose. These donut-shaped earphones aren’t quite as durable as most bone conduction headphones but the IPX4 rating should get you through just about any workout.

Like bone conduction headphones, the Bose Sport Open Earbuds ($286 at Amazon) feature an unoccluded design that leaves your ear canals completely open. You get all the same safety benefits from Bose’s chunky earbuds as you do from a set of bone conduction headphones, but Bose’s earphones sit where your ears meet your skull and use precisely placed speakers to funnel sound down your ear canals. If you have fine hearing abilities and want something to keep you safe, these IPX4 earbuds are a great option. They sound much better than bone conduction headphones and serve a similar purpose for those (without hearing impairments) who need a pair of earbuds that are safe for outdoor use.

Frequently asked questions about bone conduction headphones

Yes, AfterShokz changed its name to Shokz in December 2021, and has been releasing new headsets under the Shokz name.

Possibly! This is a difficult one to answer, but if what causes your vertigo is the seal over or in your ear and the change in pressure that results, bone conduction does not seal anything, therefore, it shouldn’t alter the pressure in your ears.

This is not a guarantee, because we aren’t medical professionals and the canals of the ear are complex, as is the interplay with the ear’s connection to sinuses, and vertigo has a number of different causes. But, if it’s the change in air pressure that is your main culprit, have you tried open-back headphones which generally have very little in the way of air pressure change by virtue of being open? Clamping force may also play a role, so perhaps an open-back headphone like the AKG K240 which tends to have a looser fit and is very much an open-back design could also work.

Unfortunately no: bone conduction may bypass your outer ear, but needs the inner ear bones, cochlea, and your nerve to work in order for you to hear audio. An acoustic neuroma is a tumor on the nerve bundle that connects these organs to your brain, and if that nerve is severed, there’s no longer a link from the ear to your brain. Bone conduction can’t bypass this.

The Aftershokz Aeropex are the best bone conduction headphones: they use Bluetooth 5.0 technology, have an eight-hour battery life, and are IP67-rated. To learn more, check out our list of the best bone conduction headsets.

In theory yes: because your ear canal is unoccluded, outside noise can make it to your inner ear much more easily than it would if you were wearing headphones or in-ears. However, you still need to listen at a responsible volume, as your brain can make it harder for you to hear certain noises if you’re listening to loud music. Remember, auditory masking takes place in your brain, not your ear.

This depends on the design of your hearing aid. If you have in-the-ear (ITE) or invisible (IIC) hearing aids, you should be able to use bone conduction headphones with hearing aids without issue. However, if you have behind-the-ear (BTE), receiver-in-canal (RIC), or open-fit hearing aids, you could experience some discomfort when wearing bone conduction headphones because they may make contact with the top part of the hearing aid module.

Unfortunately, bone conduction headphones get sound to your inner ear by vibrating the bones removed in your surgery, so it’s unlikely they’ll work for you.

Yes. Earplugs physically block the entrance to the ear canal, while bone conduction headphones work by sending vibrations to the bones in your inner ear. In theory this should work, though you would lose out on the advantages of bone conducting headphones.

Although bone conduction headphones bypass the eardrum, they still have to transmit vibrations to the inner ear for your cochlea to receive and funnel to the brain via stereocilia vibrations. Therefore, bone conduction headphones still must emit the same frequencies and vibrations to reach your cochlea, meaning some sound will be heard to those around you due to the lack of seal.

Tinnitus typically is a product of the brain in response to hearing loss. Bone conduction headphones won’t cure your tinnitus, but they’re safe to use.

This will depend on the extend of the sensitivity and the specific model. Bone conduction headphones still attach to your head or your ears.

Shokz OpenRun review: Listen to it all

Shokz corners the bone conduction headphones market with a limited line accommodating professionals, athletes, and general listeners. The Shokz OpenRun look nearly identical to the company’s famed Aeropex headphones but adds new features like fast charging and better battery life. We like the OpenRun because they’re safety-oriented and don’t clog up your ears. Not only does a fit like this keep you aware of what’s happening around you, but it also means you won’t encounter an ear infection from the headset.

After two weeks with the Shokz OpenRun we’re excited to share all that’s great about these headphones and what could be better. Let’s see if these headphones from Shokz fits your lifestyle.

Editor’s note: this Shokz OpenRun review was updated on May 19, 2023, to ensure all information is current and update the formatting.

Outdoor athletes will appreciate how the OpenRun keeps their ears open to passing cars while also relaying music to motivate them through workouts. Those with in-the-ear (ITE) or invisible (IIC) hearing aids can use this pair of bone conduction headphones since it bypasses the outer ear. Any listener who has an aversion to sticking things in their ears will like how this pair of headphones keeps the ears completely unoccluded.

What’s it like to use Shokz OpenRun?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

The OpenRun have  little arches that contour around and over your ears.

Using the Shokz OpenRun is similar to other Bluetooth headphones; you must manually pair it to your phone to get started. How you wear the OpenRun differentiates it from your standard wireless headphones and earbuds.

At first glance, you could easily mistake the OpenRun for typical neckband earbuds where you place the rounded pieces into your ear canals. If you do this, you’ll be uncomfortable, and your music won’t sound good. To wear these bone conduction headphones properly, you need to rest the earbud-shaped pieces on your cheekbones, just in front of your ears. A gentle degree of headband tension keeps the OpenRun in place. With the malleable band that connects the earpieces and runs behind your head, this Shokz headset should suit most noggin shapes.

For general wear, I find the OpenRun comfortable, but things get a bit tricky when I don my glasses. Adding a mask to the equation makes for an uncomfortable affair that would likely be worse if I grew out my hair. Another issue with bone conduction headphones generally is that placement greatly affects audio clarity, and I rarely nail it on the first try. When I do get both sound pieces aligned on my cheekbones, they move out of place when I talk or chew, which means sound quality is ultimately inconsistent. Things can go from “good” to “okay” to “bad” and back to “good” all within a minute.

Shokz includes a drawstring travel pouch, a sports headband, a magnetic two-pin charging cable, and the OpenRun headset.

How do bone conduction headphones work?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

The buttons are so small and hard to differentiate that I sometimes press both when I mean to just press one.

If you’ve never encountered bone conduction headphones, they can be a small marvel. You wear the OpenRun on your cheekbones because the headset sends sound waves to your inner ear by vibrating the bones in your skull. Standard headsets use tiny speakers to move soundwaves through the ear and down your ear canals. Bone conduction may seem scary, but the technology dates back to the 1400s and like Bluetooth, it’s harmless.

How do you control the Shokz OpenRun?

There are just three buttons on the OpenRun that control power/volume up, volume down, and multi-function commands. Like their older sibling, the OpenRun play a loud beep when you press any of the buttons. Since there’s no mobile app, you can’t disable this tone. It’s not a dealbreaker, but adjusting the volume with consecutive clicks is annoying.

Take a look at the table below to understand how to control the OpenRun for playback and calls.




  • Play / pause music
  • Answer/end call


  • Next track
  • Redial last number (when idle)


  • Previous track


  • Access voice assistant
  • Answer incoming call, hang up current call
  • Reject a call




  • Increase volume
  • Check battery status (when idle)


  • Power on


  • Power off



  • Decrease volume
  • Check battery status (when idle)




  • Reject a call


  • Change EQ setting (while music plays)

Are the Shokz OpenRun good for working out?

Most athletes can see the benefit of bone conduction headphones, especially those who exercise outside. Since your ears are open, you can remain fully aware of your surroundings. These headphones are solid for runners and bike commuters. They can even be a great training companion for rock climbers thanks to the IP67 dust and water resistance rating.

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

You can use the drawstring pouch for transport, but the OpenRun are so durable that you don’t need it.

The OpenRun allow me to hear traffic and pedestrians when biking, and unlike a portable speaker, my music won’t disturb others. Unfortunately, it takes a minute to get a good fit when wearing a helmet. When I go to put my helmet on, it will displace the OpenRun band. To avoid this, I’ve taken to securing my helmet before the OpenRun. The headphones fit perfectly fine when running, but it can be difficult to wear them with a thick beanie, which many need for winter runs. I find bone conduction headphones work best with indoor bouldering, a type of rock climbing. They rarely interfere with my movement and stay in place even when I fall.

Those who do a lot of weight lifting may not like the Shokz OpenRun because the band slides forward and off your head when you lie on your back. This is an issue when I do bench presses or “skull crushers.” However, the OpenRun are highly durable, with a nice rubberized exterior that keeps them in place in most other situations.

How do the Shokz OpenRun connect?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

Like the Aeropex (right), the OpenRun (left) only support the SBC Bluetooth codec.

You get a 10-meter wireless range thanks to Bluetooth 5.1 with this Shokz headset. The OpenRun only support the SBC Bluetooth codec, which doesn’t send high-quality audio to any device. This lack of AAC and aptX support doesn’t matter though, since auditory masking will nullify any benefit that those higher bit rate codecs offer. A bone conduction headset could support all of the high-quality codecs available, and it still wouldn’t sound as good as a pair of earbuds or headphones that block out the external world.

Interestingly, the OpenRun does have Bluetooth multipoint for simultaneous connections to two source devices, making it a fine option for productivity.

To enable multipoint connectivity on the OpenRun, follow these directions:

  1. Start with OpenRun powered off.
  2. Press the volume up button until the voice assistant says “pairing.” Wait for the LED to flash red and blue.
  3. Press and hold the multi-function and volume up buttons for 3 seconds. The voice will say, “Multipoint enabled.”
  4. Open your phone’s Bluetooth menu and select “OpenRun by Shokz.” The voice prompt will say, “Connected.”
  5. Turn the OpenRun off.
  6. Re-enter the pairing process. Press the volume up button until the voice assistant says “pairing.” Wait for the LED to flash red and blue.
  7. Open your phone’s Bluetooth menu and select “OpenRun by Shokz.” The voice prompt will say, “Connected.”
  8. Turn the OpenRun off.
  9. Turn the OpenRun on. It is now connected to both source devices.

When you want to disable Bluetooth multipoint, press and hold the multi-function and volume up buttons for 3 seconds. The voice prompt will say, “Multipoint disabled.”

How long does the battery last on the Shokz OpenRun?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

We don’t love the magnetic two-pin connector for charging.

Shokz claims you can get up to 8 hours of battery life from the OpenRun’s 160mAh lithium-polymer battery, and my time with the headset supports this. To charge the OpenRun, just attach the proprietary magnetic cable to the two-pin connector on the headset and wait 90 minutes for a full cycle. When you’re in a rush, you can charge the headset for 10 minutes and enjoy 90 minutes of playback. You get 10 days of standby which is pretty good too.

The LED lights up when the headphones are charging to denote battery status. A red light means it’s charging, and a blue light means it’s fully charged. When the LED flashes at a two-second interval, the battery is low.

Do the Shokz OpenRun block out noise?

One of the main selling points of the Shokz OpenRun is that they don’t block out background noise. The fact that you can hear your surroundings clearly while wearing the OpenRun is a feature. Those who want headphones that silence their surroundings should focus on noise canceling headphones or standard workout earbuds.

Hold up, something’s missing:

This article’s frequency response is absent from this review because our Bruel & Kjaer 5128 test fixture cannot accurately measure the headset’s frequency response. The isolation chart is absent because, well, the headphones don’t do anything to block out sound and they’re not supposed to.

How do the Shokz OpenRun sound?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

If you want the best sound, be sure to place the earbud-like pieces directly on your cheekbones.

The Shokz OpenRun sound good for a pair of bone conduction headphones and uses PremiumPitch 2. 0+. This means the transducers are angled at a more ergonomic angle against the cheekbones relative to headsets without this tech. You also get louder volume and bass outputs and minimized vibration intensity. Even with PremiumPitch 2.0+, the OpenRun have a frequency response that reproduces virtually no sub-bass due to the fit. You’ll still hear bass, midrange, and treble, but this skull-vibrating headset won’t satisfy bass heads.

Lows, mids, and highs

In the song 17 by The Greeting Committee, the kick drum during the intro is all too quiet compared to the individually picked guitar notes. Once Addie Sartino’s vocals and the rest of the instruments come in at 0:09, the percussive elements of the song become very hard to hear unless I strain for them. Sartino’s vocals come through as the clearest element of the song, and this is particularly apparent during the chorus at 1:54. While Sartino’s vocals sound great in this section, the cymbal hits are much quieter than they sound through my Shure AONIC 50 and Drop x Sennheiser HD 6XX headphones. Background harmonies are audible through the left channel but also very quiet in this chorus.

Again, the sound quality is highly subject to change depending on how you place the OpenRun on your skull and whether or not you move your jaw while wearing it. No matter how I place or displace the headphones, vocals tend to come through with the greatest clarity. If you’re a big fan of audiobooks or podcasts and want to listen while keeping an ear on the real world, you may grow to really enjoy the OpenRun’s frequency response.

When pressing the volume up/down buttons simultaneously, the EQ will cycle through “vocal booster mode” and “standard mode.” The Shokz app only supports the OpenRun Pro, so there’s no way to create a custom EQ with a proprietary app. If you’re dedicated, you can check out some third-party EQ apps, though.

Can you use the Shokz OpenRun for phone calls?

Yes, you can use the Shokz OpenRun for phone calls, but the microphone quality isn’t very good. It transmits a lot of background noise to the person on the other line, which could annoy them should you decide to talk and walk on a windy day. When you call from a quiet environment, voice quality is acceptable. Take a listen to our audio sample below.

Should you buy the Shokz OpenRun?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

There are so many Shokz headsets to choose from.

Anyone who wants a pair of wireless headphones that will keep them attuned to their surroundings will appreciate the design and build of the Shokz OpenRun. While some listeners may not like how the sound quality changes with various jaw movements (e.g., chewing), this is still one of the best sounding bone conduction headsets available.

We don’t fault you for taking issue with some of the OpenRun’s shortcomings, like the proprietary charging method and limited feature set. If you’re an average listener who just wants a pair of earbuds or headphones and doesn’t find any utility in bone conduction, there are cheaper headsets with more features to choose from.

How do the OpenRun compare to the Shokz OpenRun Pro?

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

Runners and city slickers will thoroughly enjoy the peace of mind that comes with wearing the OpenRun Pro headphones.

For the best bone conduction headphones you can buy, we recommend the Shokz OpenRun Pro, which costs $179 at Amazon. The OpenRun Pro use 9th-generation bone conduction technology and a more advanced PremiumPitch 2.0+. With this newer technology, the OpenRun Pro reproduce slightly louder bass than the standard model and keep audio output more consistent when the headset is slightly out of place.

You get a better 10-hour battery life from the OpenRun Pro than the OpenRun’s 8-hour battery life. No matter which headset you get, you’re stuck with the proprietary 2-pin charging cable, but at least both headsets support fast charging. Interstingly, the more affordable OpenRun are more durable (IP67) than the OpenRun Pro (IP55).

The AfterShokz Aeropex are a few years older than the OpenRun and use Bluetooth 5.0 instead of 5.1. You get other features like fast charging when you buy the newer, rebranded Shokz OpenRun. The OpenRun also come in a mini size for very small heads. The standard OpenRun size come in black, blue, grey, and red, which are the same color options as the Aeropex.

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

Like the OpenRun, it’s hard to tell when I’ve properly pressed the multi-function button on the Aeropex because it’s nearly flush with the headset.

Both the Aeropex and OpenRun merit IP67 durability ratings and weigh just 26g. You get eighth-generation bone conduction technology with PremiumPitch 2. 0+ regardless of which headset you buy. Interestingly, the Aeropex include more accessories like a silicone carrying pouch, ear plugs, sport belt, and two charging cables. The drawstring pouch that Shokz provides with the OpenRun may not look as cool, but it’s less likely to rip like the Aeropex pouch.

These headsets are almost identical, and if it really boils down to it, we recommend whichever one you can find on sale. Currently, the Aeropex cost $99 at Amazon.

What should you get instead of the Shokz OpenRun?

If you want to stick with bone conduction headphones but aren’t ready to drop $129 on your headset, consider the Shokz OpenMove instead. These headphones cost $79 at Amazon and use the more modern USB-C charging port rather than Shokz’ proprietary connector. Battery life isn’t as good with the OpenMove as on the OpenRun, but the buttons are easier to distinguish from one another, which is important for those who wear gloves in cold climes. You sacrifice durability with the IP55-rated OpenMove, but this should be good enough for most people.

The silicone loop fins are really important for getting a secure fit.

If you came all this way and decided that bone conduction headphones aren’t for you, the Sony LinkBuds WF-L900 are a strong alternative. These earbuds from Sony fit like your traditional buds and rest in your outer ear. A donut hole cutout keeps your ear canals open to your surroundings. This way, you get better sound than bone conduction and the benefits of a more secure fit. Generally, they cost a bit more than Shokz’ headsets ($178 at Amazon).

Lily Katz / SoundGuys

The ear hooks peek out from the back of your ears.

The Bose Sport Open Earbuds may be more for you if you don’t want anything to come close to your ear canals. These Bose buds sit on your ear, and a speaker fires sound down your ear canals. Like Sony’s earphones, Bose’s buds have just the typical IPX4 rating. One thing we like about Bose’s wireless earbuds, like the Sport Open and traditional Sport Earbuds, is that you can access updates through the mobile app. Unfortunately, the Sport Open Earbuds use a proprietary charging cradle which is a hassle. You’ll pay $286 at Amazon for these buds.

Frequently asked questions about the Shokz OpenRun

Yes, on December 28, 2021, AfterShokz renamed itself to Shokz. Shokz changed its name on its 10-year anniversary to lead into the next decade with a simplified and easier-to-share message than the former name “AfterShokz.” With this name change, came a revamped logo to better illustrate the bone conduction technology.

To reset the OpenRun, follow these steps:

  1. Start with the headset powered off.
  2. Press and hold the volume up button until the voice prompt says, “pairing.” The LED indicator will flash red and blue.
  3. Press and hold the multi-function, volume up, and volume down buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds until you hear two beeps, or feel vibrations.
  4. Turn the OpenRun off.

The OpenRun is now reset and can be re-paired to your device.

Aftershokz headphones do not need to be inserted into the ears. They are also safer for walking, running or cycling. They are also safer for walking, running or cycling.

Aftershokz is an American brand that specializes in the development of headphones and headsets with bone conduction sound. Unlike many “niche” products, these models are addressed to the widest range of users for everyday life.

Why are they attached so strangely?

As you can see, Aftershokz is literally “headphones”. They do not need to be inserted into the ears, and they do not cover the auricles. With bone conduction of sound, a person hears directly with the inner ear, where the sound is sent literally through the bones.

What is “bone conduction”?

In fact, a person constantly encounters bone conduction of sound in everyday life: this is a natural feature of our body, and this is how we hear the sound of our own voice.

Want to check? Plug your ears with your fingers and say a few words. You can’t stop listening to yourself.

What kind of security are we talking about?

In this context, we are talking about self-preservation. The story of Aftershokz began when runners and cyclists who were training near busy trails were puzzled about how to listen to music but not listen to the signal of a passing car. Open ears proved to be a logical solution.

Are these sports headphones?

Yes and no. More precisely, not only sports: Aftershokz can be comfortably used in everyday life for walking, office work, and some, for example, use them as an alternative to car headsets so as not to cover one ear and not block sound.

How do these headphones sound?

The Aftershokz headphones cover the entire standard 20 – 20000 Hz range, but still remain more mid-oriented.

At too “low” or too “high” frequencies, they can vibrate, which at first is not very familiar, but it does not cause discomfort. Any sound is a vibration of waves, and sometimes they can be felt.

Reviews of the latest flagship headphones can be found on the largest authoritative resources:

Aeropex <...> sounds much more linear already. There is no blockage in high frequencies up to the audible upper limit (even the atmosphere of the hall is more or less transmitted), no drawdown in the middle, no pronounced vibration of the emitters.

Aeropex <...> give a very high-frequency sound, and in their “legitimate” places at the temples not only provide the best musical balance, but also expand the playback range down.

Source – audio portal SalonAV .

At the same time, the mids are surprisingly well developed, the vocals are perfectly readable – everything is wonderful here. Compared to previous models, the study of the high-frequency range has also improved, but in general, bone conduction headphones have been and remain oriented to the middle.
