AfterShokz brings patented bone conduction technology, initially developed for military special operations and law enforcement by Voxtech in 2001, to sport, mobile and Bluetooth® headphones designed and priced for everyday use. Through a suite of proprietary audio technologies and the only completely open ear design, AfterShokz headphones deliver premium stereo sound and a promise of safety and comfort that is second to none. Since its inception in 2011, the company has been committed to innovating unconventionally and making situational awareness a priority.
Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process—sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. Instead of speakers that cover or nest inside your ears, AfterShokz transmits audio via a pair of transducers that rest on your cheekbones, leaving your ears uncovered and canals unblocked. Many people experience discomfort from headphones and earbuds — OpenFit™ eliminates common irritations through an unrivalled open ear design that offers supreme comfort, even during long-term use. Safety is another key benefit of the Aftershokz design — with nothing blocking or plugging your ears, maximum situational awareness is achieved.
