AfterShokz was once again a big winner at this year's iF DESIGN AWARDS, seen by many as the Oscars of the design world, alongside RedDot and IDEA.
Our ‘Aeropex’ and ‘Xtrainerz’ both won ‘Design Excellence’ with their distinguished comfortable experience of listening.
Extreme Comfort for Ears
Why did 'Aeropex’ and ‘Xtrainerz' win?One word: comfort.
"The design of Aeropex...integrating sport, fashion and bone conduction technology...the design language has emphasized on the nature of bone conduction transducers and the technology behind." Relying on patented bone-conduction technology, AfterShokz has made the “open-ear” design possible, while other brands provide only in-ear or semi-in-ear options for headphones lovers.
To offer the best headphones for swimmers, during what can be a lonely, repetitive experience, Xtrainerz are "an innovative solution". Using the same core technology, Xtrainerz's open-ear design removes the limitations of traditional headphones, making them truly embody "no wires, no devices, no limits."
Another contributing factor is that the winning duo are made of titanium. The full use of titanium reduces the weight to a level where you can barely feel the headphones.
Plus, the team worked hard on the behind-the-neck design, to make sure users receive the best experience - “The intensely tested ergonomics ensures the wearable comfort."
Open-ear, light as air, fitted for long-term wear without compromising. You forget annoying problems of sore ears with other headphones when you're running, cycling, driving, commuting or working, and you sometimes even forget you are wearing them.
You might wonder since when has "comfort" been enough to stand out in a design competition? These awards think highly of social responsibility and celebrates design that contributes to overall human wellbeing.
More than 1,000 5-stars
After trying ear buds (they weren't comfortable and always had to keep adjusting them), I went back to my old Aftershokz. They were working great.
Having used these 5 days a week and wearing them for about 10 hours a day, I must say that they are incredibly comfortable compared to the cheaper models. (Air is similar in comfort). I sometimes forget that I'm wearing them until I lay down at night.
Adam Crossley ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I can wear it with sunglasses and a hat without discomfort all day long. I wore it skiing under my helmet and also while wearing a Balaclava ski mask and it was still perfectly comfortable.
The Aftershokz are a much better solution for swimming. They stay in place (without swim cap) in turns and the sound is very good and consistent underwater and are very comfortable to wear.
This is a great product. It is beautifully designed and really relatively comfortable- especially compared to any competition. I tried three other types (including one other bone conduction headset) and this was by far the most reliable, easy to use and comfortable device.
