My review is different to most because I bought my Shokz hoping they could overcome a hearing problem. My left ear does not work because I was born with no hull in my skull to allow sound to pass through. I had no idea if I possessed the usual internal ear organs but bone induction seemed like an opportunity to find out. By bypassing the need for an ear canal I found out that my inner ear is intact and for the first time in my 57 years I can listen to my music in stereo through 2 ears. Maybe not why you designed these headphones but a revelation for me. If anyone else has a similar issue do not hesitate, these really work!
Have tested these in windy conditions and the sound quality remained. The lightweight and design allows you to run without distraction. They allow you to have that conversation with runners at park run and still enjoy the beat. So far battery life seems good, but still testing this. They don’t loose connection or sound quality with elevation on trail. Still to test on further trail and more Scottish weather but so far so good.
Just taken mine for a run and for the quiet bits of forest I forgot that I wasn't wearing my normal in-ear buds. The sound quality was pretty much on par with my AKGs.
It was only when I got near traffic or there was bird song or bikes passing from behind me that I noticed I could also hear my surroundings. A bit weird to be honest but something that won't take long to get used to.
With HGV's and heavy traffic driving past I put them onto full volume with some very bass heavy music and could feel the headphones vibrating on my skull. They were on max volume and pumping out sounds bass, probably in the 40-60Hz range with high gain.... it was on the edge of being distorted, it didn't sound healthy for the equipment so I turned it down a notch and it was fine again. So they reached their limit battling against a noisy HGV engine that was going uphill two metres to the side of me - I think that's pretty good seeing as they're so tiny!
Yeah these are great, they do exactly as I hoped but there are 2 major flaws so far in my testing;
1. The 'double press' to change track is pathetically inconsistent
2. You cannot wear a beanie hat, which pretty much makes these useless in UK winter. I have tried my best to squeeze them under but the band on the back doesn't want to comply.
For now it's spring and soon summer so I'll be loving these on the golf course all season but once winter hits I'll have to revert to my buds
I bought these so I would be able to listen to talks while not being entirely cut off from external sounds. Occasionally, & in certain situations I listen to talks while at work & it helps the day go more pleasantly. I'm also finding I'm using them late at night in my flat, as I have others to consider living upstairs etc. Great to be free roaming with no wires. I'm even finding them ok when resting my head on a pillow. They also work great for phone calls. I'm enjoying this feature, as I've not had anything like it before. I had one person complain about wind noise, but ok other than that. They are also very comfortable, bluetooth connects quickly & without clunkyness. They charge quickly & the battery lasts a full day out, including commute to work. I'm glad I decided on the pro version because of the extra battery power - less battery power would be a tad annoying I imagine. I set mine up at home on a hook, near a usb hub, which makes life easier. My only gripe is not being able to find out anywhere if the speakers are connected with a wire which runs across the back or not??? Which is important to me, as I wanted to avoid Bluetooth signal running straight through my head, like other types of headphones out there.
Sound quality is good considering the type of headphone they are. I found if I wear cheap £5 ear defenders over the top of the openrun pro, the sound is way better! In a similar way, I wear other headphones over the top. Why?... having moved & downsized everything, my musical instruments are set up minimally. But I can set up the open run pro to play music & then wear over ear headphones set up with my piano & can jam along fine without needing a mixer.
Test conditions: Paired OpenRun Pro with iPhone 12mini, adjusted to the standard EQ mode, played the music App on the IOS system, play the Lenka-Trouble is a Friend (Hi-Res). wav file, and set the volume to around 80% of the maximum volume.
Test content: OpenRun Pro battery was fully discharged and then charged to 100%. The audio file was played until running out the battery life.
The test result showed that the OpenRun Pro had a continuous playback time of up to 10 hours. In actual use, battery life depends on device settings, environment, usage, and many other factors.
The actual battery life will be affected by the type of audio, volume, temperature of your environment, and output of the USB port used to charge your headphones.
