Listening to music while running is a necessity for me. The beat gets me energized and keeps me going. Music helps me with both focusing in on my run (during speed training days) and with letting go (during easy runs.) I prefer to listen to music on my phone with headphones. In the past, tried just using the phone speaker, but I broke the speaker on my last phone. Can’t do that again! It comes at a perfect time that I was chosen to test out the new AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones as a BibRave Pro. 

These are the 3 big reasons I’m excited to start testing the Trekz Air:

  1. Safety: When earbuds are nestled into your ears, all you hear is music. That’s good for some, maybe gym goers or if you using headphones at home while cleaning. But I run outside and I need to hear my surroundings. AfterShockz Trekz Air has bone conduction technology that delivers music through your cheekbones, ensuring my ears remain completely open to hearing ambient sounds, aka coyotes and cars.
  2. Comfort: I’ve noticed that my corded earbuds hurt the insides of my ears. Also, the volume control jumps and bumps my face while I run. The Trekz Air wraparound titanium design provides a flexible fit for unnoticeable all-day comfort and stability. They are also a 20% lighter build than their counterpart. I’m looking forward to happy ears!

  3. Sound: I’m motivated by the deep bass and sweet sounds of my Disco Spotify channel. The Trekz Air offers PremiumPitch+™ that guarantees a premium audio experience, including wide dynamic range and rich bass. Also, I could enjoy six hours of continuous disco beats (and calls) on a single charge. Bonus!

Next week can’t come soon enough. I’ll be starting my hill training plan for my Craft Classic pacing half. Trekz Air are going to help me plow through those hills and keep me motivated.
