PROS

  • For neckband-style headphones, the Bluez 2S delivers a pretty comfy fit.
  • The transducers generally don't slide out of place even while you work out or bend over.
  • Both music and calls sound good, and at the same time, you don't lose awareness of your environment.

CONS

  • The power button and volume controls are housed on the underside of the headphones, making them a bit awkward to access.
  • The neckband is not adjustable--although the company offers an accessory for those who want to make the fit smaller.
  • The advertised six-hour battery life is disappointing.
AfterShokz is renowned for its bone-conduction technology. The Bluez 2S earpieces do not venture inside your ear canals; they sit outside your ears, and the bone-conduction technology delivers the music through your cheekbones--keeping you on alert for ambient sounds like that speeding motorbike around the bend. The company designed the Bluez 2S to deliver audio with a wide dynamic range, while keeping sound leakage to a minimum. The unit resists dust and sweat, and the dual-microphone enhances phone call quality by reducing extraneous noise. The bundle includes a drawstring pouch, a tension band, a micro-USB charging cord, and reflective stickers.

They will not deliver the top notch sound quality of other over ear or in ear offerings, but if you want to be able to have situational awareness and comfort especially while being active, then this is as good as it gets!

I have a pretty average head-size and the headphones fit me with no problems. My wife, however, who wears a larger hat size than I do, found them a little overly-snug.

[Audio] sounds good and clear and crisp — especially if you’re playing reasonably high quality audio files. Just don’t expect it to enhance low-rez MP3 files, although low-end voice audio does benefit [from] the bone conduction process as regards to making it more “clean” to the ear and less “hissable.”

Eventually, I became accustomed to the Bluez 2S and found the sound quality to be very good. Audio was generally crisp and clear; however, at times I found it a bit “scratchy”.

I get a comfortable, lightweight wireless headset that provides tunes at a respectable volume, while still being able to maintain awareness about what's going on around me -- an ideal scenario for bike riding.

I’ve been impressed at every turn…My past experiences have been with bone conduction headphones that produced a hollow or nasally sound. The Bluez 2S give off a sound as if they are over my ears.

I donned the headphones for two months worth of rigorous running...in weather that induced copious amounts of sweat. They performed perfectly. Even after getting caught in heavy downpours, the 'phones worked beautifully.

We were pleasantly surprised by not only the sound quality of the Bluez 2s series Gamez headset, but also the battery life, the comfiness, and overall product quality that came with it.
