Run Leaders unanimously recommend Shokz Sports Headphones
26 January 2022
Few pieces of kit can promise to deliver such an instant impact on your running performance as the Shokz (formerly known as AfterShokz) Aeropex headphones.
Bold words indeed, but in an England Athletics survey of 211 Run Leaders who trialled the Aeropex headphones, a hugely impressive 100 per cent noted they are willing to recommend Shokz headphones based on their experience.
Of course, for anyone who has experienced the power of music on the move, perhaps those numbers aren’t that surprising given the way your body positively reacts to the tunes you’ve selected – you can literally rev yourself up or calm down at the press of a button. And it’ll also help you recover from a tough workout in double quick time.
That’s all changed for Clare – and thousands of others – now. That’s because these bone conduction headphones are light (just 26g) and their reliable stability means wearing them provides you with total freedom of movement which in turn helps you run nice and relaxed as you listen to your favourite artist while at the same time able to listen out for things like traffic or pedestrians. Truly an amazing piece of kit.
Equally impressive numbers from the survey include the fact that 97 per cent of those surveyed are still using the Shokz Aeropex fully over one month on. “They’re brilliant, they’re really light, I hardly know I’m wearing them, and the sound is really clear, nothing bad to say about them – great product,” says Run Leader Michelle Hewitt summing up a common theme – they’re light and unobtrusive, safe and provide fabulous sound quality.
But again, if you’ve experienced how powerful listening to music – while still be able to hear traffic – on the move can be, how could you not be impressed with the Shokz headphones? The science is there to back it all up: Listening to music on the move can elevate positive aspects of mood such as excitement and happiness, as well as reduce negative aspects such as tension and fatigue.
Shokz provides all of this – and more given the safety on the move bone conduction headphones provide meaning 79% of the Run Leaders are happy to use Shokz for other sports and even more – 84% – for all their fitness activities.
