Review – Aftershokz Aeropex Bone Conduction Headphones

Review Aftershokz Aeropex Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones
I have been using a set of Aftershokz bone conduction headphones daily, ever since I reviewed the Bluez2 headphones back in 2015. The Aftershokz Aeropex is the brand's latest release model and offers several notable upgrades: including IP67 waterproofing, a lighter and slimmer frame, and an outstanding improvement in clarity and unit functionality.

Bone conduction headphones allow for open ear listening—where the headphone sits next to the ear rather than featuring an earbud that blocks the ear canal. The result is that you keep your ambient sound listening capabilities—a vital safety consideration for cyclists, as well as being necessary for optimum balance and stability.

Even back in 2015, with the Aftershokz Bluez2 headphones, I was impressed by the Aftershokz bone conduction open-ear technology. I remember being sceptical whether the sound would be comparable to normal headphones, but I was amazed by the clarity of the audio. The small downfalls of the Bluez2 model were sound leakage, a slightly bulky design, and the fiddly buttons and micro-USB port. With the Aftershokz Aeropex, all those concerns have been addressed, and this new unit is undeniably exceptional…

The Aeropex uses a titanium metal band to create a super lightweight but strong and flexible structure to the headphones. Thanks to this design, as well as smaller earpieces, the Aeropex has a superlight 26-gram weight, and feels minimalist and discrete when you are wearing them.

The new Aftershokz model also has reengineered bone conduction technology—the Aeropex delivers sound vibrations with higher efficiency and fidelity than ever before. Couple this with the PREMIUMPITCH 2.0+ design and angled transducers, and you have deeper bass, less vibration, and louder volume levels than any of the Aeropex's predecessors.

Aftershokz have also address the niggling problems of sound leakage and fiddly USB ports. The new Aeropex headphones have a 50 percent reduced level of sound leakage thanks to the improved design; while a magnetic charging cable avoids the need for a cable port; also meaning the sealed unit is 100 percent waterproof to IP67.

Adding together the above improvements in functionality with the frankly exceptional sound quality and clarity of the Aeropex means that there is extraordinarily little I can now fault these headphones on. I have previously tested high-end headphones from the likes of Sennheiser, and the sound with these headphones is certainly comparable; but with a more secure and safer design.

The Aeropex provides you with a flexible, durable, and long lasting (eight hours playback) audio listening device; in my honest opinion these are the current best headphones for cycling, as well as being a great pair of headphones for running and general outdoor wear.

The Aftershokz Aeropex sets a new standard for sports headphones.

  1. i have two pairs of trekz titanium, and they are brilliant, not just for cycling but walking,working, gardening pretty much everything (except wearing with a hat)
    completed the strava challenge to get my discount code, and eagerly awaited the arrival of my aeropex. a little bit more comfortable on the tops of the ears , but they stopped charging after a week. the other big problem is the button, it is so much smaller and is really difficult to use with gloves or dirty hands. the titanium ones, you could just use the side of your hand but the aeropex is really fiddly to find the button, even without gloves. needless to say they went back
