Instead of speakers that cover or nest inside your ears, AfterShokz transmits audio via a pair of transducers that rest on your cheekbones, leaving your ears uncovered and canals unblocked. Many people experience discomfort from headphones and earbuds — OpenFit™ eliminates common irritations through an unrivaled open ear design that offers supreme comfort, even during long-term use. Safety is another key benefit of our design — with nothing blocking or plugging your ears, maximum situational awareness is achieved.
Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process—sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. Our patented bone conduction technology produces sound via mini vibrations that travel through your cheekbones to your inner ears, bypassing your eardrums completely.
