Prevent accidents on the run with AfterShokz Sportz M2
Aren’t you tired of using headphones which you need to take off regularly and massage your ears to ease them up? Or the sweat making the headphones wet during a workout, annoying isn’t it? Running headphones should be comfortable, sweat proof and allow you to stay connected with their surroundings while playing sports or exercising. AfterShokz Sportz M2 as the name itself, are headphones which are very unique in their design and function.
AfterShokz Sportz M2 was initially designed in 2001 for military field soldiers so that they can stay in touch with each other and also be aware of their surroundings. The open ear headphones use a simple mechanism of ‘bone conduction’. Instead of transmitting sound energy through the ear canal these wrap around AfterShokz Sportz M2 headphones sit comfortably on your cheek bone, just in front of your ear and via bone conduction technology they transmit sound into the inner ear.
The headphones come with a sleek design featuring an around the neck plastic band which connects both the buds and a cable which leads to a battery pack connecting to a phone or music player. The battery box also has a microphone, volume control and a power button. The improved AfterShokz Sportz M2 version available in the market is specially designed for runners and cyclers who can indulge themselves in their favourite music and maintain environmental alertness.
The sound quality is however not as good as closed ear headphones. Bass and treble are not clearly audible and anyone around you will also be able to hear whatever you are listening to. So AfterShokz Sportz M2 is not feasible to use in a quiet surrounding where others might get disturbed.
The AfterShokz Sportz M2 is available for £49.96, with a two year warranty. If you are a bicyclist or a regular outdoor runner these headphones are definitely worth your money!
