PROS

  • These headphones don't block out background noise, making it possible to multitask while watching the kids or listening for traffic.
  • People with some types of hearing impairments are able to hear these bone-conducting headphones with clarity.
  • With sweat-resistant material and an adjustable strap, the Gamez headphones are fit for extended use.

CONS

  • Though the vibrations are normally unnoticeable, the sensation can be annoying when heavy bass is playing. Some people report tender skin after use.
  • The sound quality is decent but not as good as over-the-ear headphones in the same price range.
  • It is hard to find the button you need without looking at the headset.
Gamez headphones from Aftershokz conduct sound through the cheekbones rather than through the eardrums. Using Bluetooth with a 33-foot range and powered by a six-hour battery, these bone-conducting headphones play decent-quality sound without annoying the people nearby. As the name implies, the Gamez headphones do a particularly good job with gaming sounds. Individuals who suffer from some types of hearing impairments are able hear this device. It comes with reflector tabs, a carrying pouch, a charging cord, and a tension band.

Some nitpicks are about the sweet spot needed for optimal listening, or that the adjustment band is kind of cheap and falls out frequently.

It allows me to game with the volume up, without disturbing anyone, but doesn't cut me off from everything else.

It’s not like someone can clearly hear what you’re listening to, but it’s very similar to someone having their volume way too high on a traditional pair of headphones making it leak out for the world to hear.

The vibration can be pretty intense when listening to bass-heavy music or when playing games with a lot of explosions; I found that I preferred to use them with calmer, fantasy-style games like Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf, since the constant buzzing in more action-oriented titles felt tiring after a while.

The open ear design of the AfterShokz Gamez can be useful in so many situations where you need to be aware of your environment. They sound great while still allowing you to hear the environment, people speaking to you or that person sneaking up on you.
