Aftershokz are bone conduction, open ear headphones that allow runners to be aware of their surroundings while running. The Aftershokz Xtrainerz are MP3 headphones which are waterproof with a 4GB memory. The Xtrainerz can store up to 1,200 songs allowing users to go phone-less and wireless.
The Xtrainerz are unique from other Aftershokz models because the Xtrainerz have the ability to work underwater. Bluetooth technology disconnects underwater, therefore, the Xtrainerz were developed with a built in MP3 player. The MP3 player is simple and easy to use, simply plug the Xtrainerz into your computer, then drag and drop audio files. The audio files must be in proper format, making Spotify and other streaming playlists non-compatible.
I was unable to test these headphones on a swim, living in Tamaqua I’m limited on swimming options for fitness. I did test these during my military PT test, they are light-weight and sound great. My good friend, and fellow BibRavePro Corey has reviewed the Aftershokz Xtrainerz on his blog. He says there’s a change in audio equalizers to adjust for underwater swimming, he says it sounds amazing and he’s very happy with the sound quality. He will wear his Xtrainerz in the pool, on the bike, on the treadmill then into the shower.
The Xtrainerz are available in 2 colors, black diamond or sapphire blue and retail for $149.95. The packaging of the Xtrainerz is very professional and the headphones come with their own carrying case. The carrying case is perfect for putting the headphones into your gym bag as it includes small holes to allow the headphones to air out after use. They also come with water ear plugs to use while swimming. The Xtrainerz are a must-have gift this Christmas for your favorite runner or swimmer.
