As a runner, I generally don’t run with music due to having to run along country roads and a few close calls with “country traffic” in the past. I’ve been using the OpenFit wireless earbuds from Shokz for a few days now on my runs to try and change my mind to take my playlists with me. These are game changing as not only being comfortable and light to wear (you forget you’re wearing them even on my 2 hour + long runs!), but most importantly I can hear everything that’s going on around me thanks to the openear concept. Awesome sound quality to boot has definitely changed my mind to take my tunes with me from now on.
They were very light and comfortable for the majority of the time.
Much better sound quality than previous models, but please refer to no 2 of the negatives. I have since tweaked the EQ more and it’s made it better, but at the expense of the range of bass.
The introduction of an app and an equaliser is a great addition. I made my own profile immediately, which suited my taste and music preferences. I found it very easy to navigate and use.
The charging case is brilliant. A great idea and it has a good solid and premium feel. Much better than the old soft pouches. It also makes it easier to pop them in your pocket if you’ve worn them to commute somewhere. This wasn’t something I was able to do with the aeropex as I was always concerned I’d lose or break them.
The battery life appears to be pretty good so far. I’ve been quite impressed with this and the fact that the case can add further charge is good for long days out.
The connection speed is very good. I was impressed at how quick and simple they were to pick up and use out of the box.
They look and feel like a premium product. Much more so than the aeropex for example.
While the ability to hear around you is more limited, you still can hear at lower volumes.
Overall I am enjoying the Openfits so far and it is a good step into a different market for you. I was impressed from the second I opened the box and set them up.
I am very much an advocate for your products and I have been since my first pair of Trekz Titanium. That said, if someone asked me if I’d recommend these to them, I’d have to hesitate slightly and first ask them what they are wanting to use them for. For example, if they’re a cyclist and were wanting to use them riding, I’d have to point them to your banded alternatives. If they were a runner or just wanted them for an alternative to earbuds then I would certainly recommend them.
I’ve been using the OpenFit for a week now, on my daily runs.
Having previously used OpenRun Pro I was keen to see how the new ones stacked up. I’ve been really impressed with the sound quality improvements, particularly on parts of my running route where I’m by busy roads – the open ear design means that heavy traffic noises do drown out some of the sound from the earphones, but there’s been an improvement in the OpenFit.
Pairing was super easy, and there’s no buttons to press to activate the headphones, you just open the case, put them on, and hit the play button. Battery life appears to be good – I ran for 3 hours at the weekend with no issues, the case re-charges them between use.
The over-ear design is comfortable, the rubber is soft even when wearing sunglasses at the same time (which I was initially concerned about).
The only downside from what I can see is not being able to turn them off / back on without having the case to hand. For example there have been times where I’ve been headed to a race and don’t want to carry a carry case for my earbuds. I’ve walked around with the earbuds on for a couple of hours before a marathon, and the battery has been running down (even when not listening to anything). Half way through the run the battery died altogether.
I haven’t yet worn the OpenFit for long enough to see whether this is an issue.
The only other piece of feedback is that the case itself feels a bit lightweight – a more robust case would give the impression of an even higher quality product.
So far so good, and I’m looking forward to many more miles in the OpenFit.
Having an old pair of AfterShokz I was really interested to see how the new OpenFit would compare to my previous headphones. Overall I have to say I am very impressed.
Usage: I have used the OpenFit for over 24 hours, and in a variety of situations including at the gym, out for a walk, and at home.
- They're comfortable to wear for prolonged periods, and you can forget you have them on.
- They work well for different sized ears. I have small ears and often find in ear buds are too large, and over ear buds fall out. This hasn't been an issue for me or my friend who also tried them.
- They have a great battery life for listening to music, and even if the ear buds are getting a bit low when you pop them back in their case they'll recharge.
- Having an app to alter the sound to your preference is brilliant.
- You can just use one if you want, or share with a friend.
- They can go up to a good volume if you're in a noiser environment.
- No pressure headache which I can get from longer use of over ear headphones, or ear pressure from in ear headphones.
- Handy size to put in your pocket and carry around.
- At times they could be a bit under or over touch sensitive. Turning the music off trying to move my hair, and then not turning it back on again when pressed.
- Without having the band around the back of the head may be slightly easier to lose one (I have had them come off changing a top whereas this happened less where they were attached together) but just requires you to be aware of this.
- Probably less suitable for anyone requiring hearing aids, but still ok with glasses.
If looking for a good set of headphones for different situations they're worth the investment. If you have an older pair with a band don't expect them to sit or feel exactly the same but this isn't a negative. I will be continuing to use mine regularly, hopefully for many years to come!
Received these for my birthday.
Had mini shokz previously which were great, but these are another level.
The sound is amazing and so comfortable.
Can’t wait to try them on my next run

5. When using during outdoor activity, please ensure earbuds are being properly worn and control the volume to ensure that you can hear your surroundings, including traffic signals, passersby, etc. Using OpenFit while riding or driving may distract your attention and have higher risk of sports injury and traffic accident; Using OpenFit while riding or driving may violate local laws or community regulations, use of this product should comply with local laws and community regulations.
6. According to the results of simulation experiments conducted by Shokz Lab for the intersection scene, AI noise cancellation can provide a maximum of 50dB signal-to-noise ratio improvement, which is equivalent to a 99.7% reduction of ambient noise, when the sound pressure level at the artificial head is 65-72dB(A).
7. IP54 water-resistance only applies to the earbuds, and charging case is not rated waterproof. OpenFit was tested under controlled laboratory conditions and has a rating of IP54 under IEC standard 60529.
