If you're a runner who enjoys hitting the trails with your favorite pump-up jams blasting in your ears, don't settle for headphones that fall short on the quality scale. Throw out those old, tangled, poor quality headphones—you know, the ones that fall out of your ears every ten steps—and treat yourself to one of these top-of-the-line headphones.
If you're a jogger, these headphones are ideal for you! They employ a new bone conduction technology, which requires the headphones to rest on your head a half-inch in front of your ears. Audio signals move through your cheekbones to your ears, providing clear sound quality without sacrificing your environmental awareness. You no longer have to choose between safety and tunes. You can have both! Purchase the headphones for $70 at AfterShokz.
