VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The company's innovative design allows the headphones to hover in front of your ears, which makes you fully aware of your surroundings.
  • The Bluez 2 headphones work well for phone conversations.
  • The unit feels lightweight, and accessing the controls while wearing the headphones feels natural.

CONS

  • Music with a heavy base, particularly at high volumes, can result in annoying vibrations.
  • The Bluez 2 headphones offer only about six hours of battery life.
  • The headphones do not fold up for storage.
Aftershokz uses bone-conduction technology to provide sound: Forget about buds in your ear canal or pads that surround your ears and tune out your environment--the Bluez 2's sound is delivered through your cheekbones. This pair of moisture-resistant headphones has a band that wraps around the back of your neck. The Bluez 2's integrated voice prompts guide you through the Bluetooth pairing process and indicate battery status. The box includes a drawstring storage pouch, a tension band for a tighter fit, and reflective stickers for the neckband. You have three color options: black, red, and a neon green-black combo.

They certainly aren’t going to appease a hard-core audiophile who is looking for the perfect match of mids, highs and lows, but a music lover will appreciate the ability to hear a wide range of notes with ease.

Are there better sounding wireless headphones in this active/lightweight category? No doubt, but none allow you to pay attention to your surroundings safely like these do. Plus, they usually cost much, much more. It's just nice to give your ears and their precious canals a chance to breathe.

The headset’s speakers are physically positioned in front of your ears, which looks like it can’t possibly work properly, until you realize the sounds are being transmitted and augmented by the vibrating pads, up your cheekbones and through your ear canals...The upside of Bluez 2’s headset is that it’s one-size-fits-all, and all-fits-comfortably.

It’s important to nestle the headphone pads right up against the bone in front of your ear, otherwise you won’t get the full effect. It does take a bit of experimentation to find the best spot, especially if you wear glasses.

I’ve been using my Bluez 2s for a couple weeks now, and I’m pretty much in love with them. I’ll admit, the bone-conduction took a little getting used to – especially wearing them in front of your ears. I had a little tenderness for a couple days before I got used to them.
