These headphones do not have to cover your ears for you to hear music, thanks to its bone conduction technology. You will still be able to hear your surroundings which should help maintain/improve awareness and safety when running or working out outdoors.
Pro Comfortable as these do not go in/on ear
These headphones will not put any strain in or on the ears. These sit just above the area of the ears when worn which could help minimize discomfort.
Pro Lightweight and won't strain the head or neck
The connecting band is thin and light, and both transducers are quite small so not much weight will be applied to a user's head.
Pro Clamping force is just right
The flexible connecting band accommodates a wide range of head/neck sizes. This minimizes pinching or discomfort yet can stay securely on the head.
Pro You can take phone calls with these headphones on
These feature an integrated microphone. At the press of a button on the in-line remote, you can answer phone calls which is very convenient.
Pro Ear plugs are included if you prefer to block out noise
You can opt to use the included earplugs with these headphones. This will result in a music listening experience that is quite similar to traditional earphones where some of the ambient sound is blocked out.
Pro Good battery life
While the headphones advertise a 6-hour battery life, they can easily surpass that threshold if you don't listen to them at full volume.
Con May sound dull or flat to some
The sound that these headphones produce will not wow anyone. Bass is present but sounds quite loose while the mids and highs sound thin. With these, sound quality is compromised in favor of portability, convenience and added awareness of your surroundings.
Con Can cause a potentially uncomfortable tingling sensation on your head
Some experience a tingling sensation on their head, especially when listening at higher volumes. This can be attributed to the bone conduction tech, which uses the bone structure of the face for the sound waves to travel through.
Con Can stop working under excessive sweat
The headphones are IP55 certified and while it generally suggests that they are sweat resistant some users have reported their headphones failing from sweat.
