A safer way to listen to music outdoors: AfterShokz

Boot Camp feature for Friday, October 9, 2015

A safer way to listen to music outdoors.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Bone conduction technology has been around for a while, letting you listen to music or take phone calls without having your ears covered.    A company called AfterShokz has created some of the best sounding bone conduction earphones I’ve heard.   The Bluez2 model is available now and will soon be joined by the Trekz Titanium.   The advantages?   CEO Bruce Borenstein…

“If you are a sports enthusiast and you like to run or you like to ride your bike or go for a hike but also remain aware of your surroundings, bone conduction is the answer.”

They let you enjoy your music while still being able to hear cars and other noises that you might need to pay attention to.   The new Trekz Titanium model also supports multipoint pairing so you can use the headphones with more than one device.   There’s more info at Aftershokz.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.
