AfterShokz’s bone conducting sports headphones have finally hit Malaysia

trek titanium1_1AfterShokz, a brand known for producing sporty headphones that uses a more unusual style of playing your music while you work out is now available locally.

The product of a successful Indiegogo campaign, the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium is a Bluetooth headset that vibrates music straight through your skull by ways of bone conduction technology.

Bone conduction technology originally was developed for the military, but has since filtered into commercial products due to its uses. How it works is, instead of producing sound the way most audio devices do, these bypass the eardrums and transmit audio waves straight to your inner ears. This leaves your ears open to the environment so you can keep alert and aware.

The Trekz Titanium headset features an OpenFit design with comfort and uncompromised  situational awareness in mind as well as PremiumPitch+ Sound to optimise the delivery of sound to where it needs to be.

In terms of battery life, the headset can run for a good 6 hours continuously and it sports a IP55 rating against sweat, dust and moisture, so its perfect to take on your evening jog. You can even make calls with it via Bluetooth as it has a noise cancelling mic mounted on it.
