Swim, run and stay safe

TRAINING for a sport can be tedious and boring. The monotony of hours and hours of sweat and strain can be made easy with music, podcasts, or audiobooks.

But, wearing headphones or earbuds can be dangerous, especially for those who exercise outdoors, and are not an option for swimmers.

AfterShokz, the makers of bone conduction headphones, recently offered two solutions: The AfterShokz Aeroplex wireless headphones, and AfterShokz XTrainerz MP3 headphones.

Instead of using traditional driver units that have to be placed over the ear, bone conduction headphones uses electromechanical transducers.

This technology uses the bones in the skull to transmit sound to the ear without blocking the ear canal or limiting the user’s awareness. This makes them safe and ideal for outdoor and everyday use.

Made for runners, cyclists, and the urban explorer, the AfterShokz Aeroplex wireless headphones features IP67 water and sweat proofing, the latest Bluetooth technology with up to 10m of range, and Premium Pitch 2+ for the best audio experience.

If taking a smartphone along is not the option, there are the AfterShokz XTrainerz MP3 headphones.

They can take a 2m dive for up to two hours. 4GB of storage and eight hours of battery life completes this water, dust, and dirt-proof package.

AfterShokz Aeroplex comes in lunar grey, cosmic black, blue eclipse, and solar red. It is available online and in retail stores across Malaysia for RM739.

AfterShokz XTrainerz MP3 headphones are available in black diamond, sapphire blue, ruby red, and aquamarine. It retails for RM699.
