Thanks - 12% code not working on the blue pair though.

Also 2%-6% TCB
I wouldn't have known. I bought the slate colour
I bought these for my dad and he loves them - he can now talk and listen to his music at the same time - amazing tech!
Oh man. Wish they had pink too!! Just received these for my birthday today but husband paid £109 for the pink ones on amazon. Such a huge price diff. Really wanted the pink but for almost £30 difference I'm thinking I might return them and reorder these in the slate.
My wife has these and they are superb.
Tried these and they're not bad but the sound quality is pretty weak - bone conduction headphones just sound 'thin' and there's not really a lot you can do about that from what I know. If you're used to a crisp soundstage across all frequencies at the gym or out running, these are disappointing and very expensive compared to traditional designs.
31968027-xltDM.jpgBlue look good too.

I've got the cheapo ones that have a wire. But then I plug into my iPod nano
Anyone know of a store that likely stocks these? I'd like to try them as I don't currently listen to music while cycling but it'd certainly be nice to, though this is only worth £81 if the quality's reasonable
I have these. The sound quality is indeed not great. They're also not great for cycling, at least not for me as the ideal spot on my face for conduction happens to be where my helmet strap sits so I'm not getting the best of mediocre sound quality even at that.

You also find that the music often gets drowned out by the sound of wind when you cycle anyway, and you can't really pump these too loud as the vibrations feel uncomfortable even when the loudness isn't really all that loud from a perception standpoint.

Also worth noting that they bleed noise very very badly so they're not great in situations where you might be bothering people.

They're probably best used by solo outdoor runners. For cyclists it's gonna depend on your helmet straps. Personally I wouldn't use these in public like on transport or sitting in a cafe etc, there's just too much noise bleed and the sound quality is far inferior to even a set of £20 wired in - ear buds, even cheapo sub £20 Mpow Bluetooth earphones I got for the gym sound better.
I love mine.
Absolutely great solution for people who want to listen to music/podcasts without losing the ability to hear whats going on around you.
I mainly use mine for running and working out doors. I don't really lose any awareness whilst running and I can work outdoors with the kids running about and still be able to hear what mischief they are upto.
Sound quality isn't audiophile quality, but its good enough. I listen to mine in bed without my lass being able to hear them, so noise bleed isn't an issue for me. Fallen asleep with them on aswell so they're comfortable.
I can mow the lawn (petrol mower) and still hear a podcast - that however, is the top end noise level to be able to hear clearly.
For what they are designed for and what I need them for, I cant fault them.

So errrr... put them under your helmet strap?!
Top find OP. I've been looking at these and almost bought from amazon for £109 yesterday. +1

I've tried but having the emitter pressed into your face is uncomfortable and affects the sound.

Also loosening the helmet to that degree increases the chances that it pops off in an accident.

Exactly this. If you want good sound while cycling, shove a JBL Flip or UE Boom in your bottle cage! Jokes aside I don't cycle with music any more, it's dangerous enough out there as it is and I don't need an excuse for someone to worm their way out of an accident and possibly blame me (like Joe Public is going to know or care if you have 'bone conduction' headphones when someone jumps a red or doesn't see you). Many decent road running races ban these as well, because people were flaunting the no headphones rule by using bone conduction so they just banned them outright.

As someone else said though, for podcasts/spoken word they're probably fine, but bad for music. I'm pretty happy with Backbeat Fits for running and the gym - they don't block sound and have good frequency response.

If you're half deaf, ie lost hearing range in one ear like me, then these are great. Brings back the sound in stereo.

Ok they're not top quality sound, but any bone conduction headphones aren't going to be as good as normal headphones

I bought mine ages ago, broke the arm, fixed it with sugru putty
Fabulous idea, very poor sound, daughter bought them last month for cycling, they are a £25 product at best.
Are you guys definitely talking about this model of these? These are the high end ones and really well reviewed on amazon

I am talking about this exact spec/pair, the sound quality was a big disappointment, that said if you just want some background music to spur you on whilst running/cycling and still be able to hear traffic then they will be just fine, I still think they are overpriced though.

I've just got back from a run after deciding to open them and they were fantastic. Comfortable, could hear the traffic, buttons easy to turn it down/skip a song. Had to turn it down from full volume at one point as it drowned out all the outside noise while running down country lanes. On just slightly lower volumes you can then hear traffic coming. I felt much safer than regular headphones that still block sound even if you've paused because you've blocked your ears with them.
Definitely immersive and far from just background noise. Bass was bassy, mid range was fine and it didn't peek in the high range.
Worth the money imo and I paid £109 for mine.
To note - I've also got SCDS where a bone is missing from my middle ear so I get lots of internal sounds when I talk or eat and I worried whether these would function for me but they were brilliant.

If you cycle with headphones on you are an accident waiting.to happen. I was cycling behind a guy the other day shouting at the top of.my voice that his phone was going to fall out of his back pocket. When it did he eventually noticed when the Bluetooth signal was lost...all I could do to run over it with both wheels !

That's exactly what these headphones are designed for. You hear the noise in your head but your ears are totally uncovered. You hear everything as if you have no headphones at all.

I'm surprised they can ban them outright considering that aftershockz are an official partner of English Athletics Association and their site state that these are the only type of earphones allowed. If you were banned from wearing them in a run which is run under EAA rules, then I'm sure you could report the organisers ... englandathletics.org/athletes/athlete-registration/aftershokz

That’s new to me (I didn’t know they were partnered so I assume you are correct), though I don’t own any bone conduction headphones as they sound dreadful and I didn’t ever want to be the idiot arguing that they’re not earphones as they don’t go in your ears (even though it’s technically correct)!

To be honest as you need to carry a phone to use them that’s extra weight most people don’t want (and in competitive events banning phones is easier) and the BTF does still ban these.
