AfterShokz Bluez 2 Wireless Bone Conduction Headphones with Bluetooth are stereo headphones with a difference. Using their patent pending bone conduction technology transducers are placed in front of the ears, on the cheekbones, producing mini vibration that transmits sound through the users cheekbones to the inner ear. This leaves your ears completely uncovered and alert to other sounds, such as traffic, emergency vehicles, other people approaching, leaving you totally aware of your surroundings. With the open ear design, light weight, wraparound headband with adjustable tension band and sweat resistance Bluez 2 are comfortable and stable, even when used over extended periods of time.
The Bluetooth connects you wirelessly to your Bluetooth MP3 player or mobile phone, allowing you to listen to stereo music and / or make and take phone calls safely while on the move as your ear canals aren't covered. Dual noise cancelling microphones are integrated and strategically placed on the headband for phone calls. All the controls are on the headband and there is voice prompt, provided by Audrey, to aid the user experience.
The Bluez 2 are powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery. A Micro USB to USB cable is supplied and the charge time takes 2 hours. There is and LED indicator to show when charging is complete.
Not everyone likes to be shut off when using standard headphones or earphones and Bluez 2 are being used by cyclists, runners, walkers, gamers and even vehicle owners who don't have hands free mobile. In some cases people, with certain types of hearing loss, use them as the bone conduction bypasses the outer and middle ear and transmits the sound to the inner ear.
