Listen without your ears

  • Wireless bone conduction headphones designed for gamers
  • Band wraps behind your head and rests in front of your ears
  • Leaves your ears open; sends sound directly to the cochlea

Sometimes we turn to our headphones to block the outside world. Maybe we're Skyping with a friend, or we're taking our frustrations out on some poor enemy in our favorite FPS. Part of the problem, though, in using headphones to tune out is that we need to remain aware of the rest of the world around us. At work, your officemates may want to ask you a question. On the street, that honking horn or siren is warning you of imminent disaster. In the field, that high-pitched whistling portends a meteor about to smack you upside the head. You need to be able to hear what you're listening to and simultaneously hear the world around you.

These AfterShokz Gamez are bone-conduction headphones. These headphones leave your ears open while directing sound waves through your cheek and jaw to your cochlea, bypassing the eardrum entirely. (This also makes them great for people with certain types of hearing loss.)

Bone-conduction technology is optimized for speech currently, which makes this an incredible gaming headset. Put your team on these, and have the game sounds come to your eardrum via the normal method, and you'll never have to fear Leeeroy Jenkins being drowned out by the soundtrack again. It's great for phone calls, too, with a multifunction button on the headset that controls both music and calls. And audio books really shine.

Another place where these shine is when they're used in noisy environments. When the ambient noise level is already high, these deliver to your cochlea the sounds you're trying to hear, not overcome by wind or machinery noises. But, of course, if you're about to walk into a girder, you'll still be able to hear that, too, because your ears are open.

These Aftershokz Gamez fit around the back of your head, and come with an adjustable tension band so they still fit snugly on folks with smaller noggins. You can even wear them over a pair of slim glasses. They're designed to repel sweat and moisture to encourage you to use them while working out, and they include some reflective stickers in case you're using them outside at night. We predict you're going to want to use them 24 x 7.
