- Aftershokz Open-Ear Headphones
Engineered for athletes, these innovative, sweatproof headphones rest in front of your ears, rather than partially inside them, and rely on something called “bone conduction” to deliver sound to you. Vibrations bypass the eardrum and instead transmit sound waves through your skull, where they are eventually interpreted by your inner ear. Sound quality was indistinguishable from our favorite earphones. The headphones also include a microphone for making phone calls and an external volume-control module.
