Music works

What is the benefit of running with music?

Motivating music tends to increase the intensity arousal, helping you as a runner to feel more excited and energetic. Remember, use music while running to your benefit.

Music and running to get you in the mood

If you want to feel calm, soothing music works, when you want to rev the engine, pump up the volume! Listening to music while running is a tried and tested formula that, for several reasons, can boost your performance every time you go out.

Rhythmic, energetic music will improve your coordination and help you to keep pace, also motivating you and boosting your energy - particularly when coupled with empowering and motivating lyrics.

Above all, listening to music while running will improve your mood, increase your enjoyment levels, and provide a distraction from the task at hand. This helps with increasing endurance and reducing the perception of fatigue.

Running with music safely

The key, when you’re listening to music while running is to do it safely, which is where AfterShokz and bone conduction technology come into play. Basically, you can listen to music while running and hear traffic at the same time. It works like this: When you eat cookies, the cracking sound you hear is created by vibration travelling through your facial bones to your inner ears. Taking advantage of this natural phenomenon, bone conduction transducers guide micro-vibrations through your cheekbones to your inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering the ears themselves.
