Do you want to be isolated when working out and listening to your favorite tunes? You need the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones to achieve these results. No matter where you find yourself in the gym or office, these earphones have a great sound. However, this is not all it has to offer. Find out here what more you can get with the AfterShokz Trekz Air review here.

AfterShokz Trekz Air Design

AfterShokz Trekz Air

The AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones made for isolation when you commute or exercise. With ambient sound blocked out, you can immerse yourself in whatever you like. The Trekz Air is more than earphones but speakers. With the OpenFit design, you can block out external noise. However, you do get a mute button on the left-side that is easy to find to let in ambient noise. Furthermore, the earphones durable, and they do have loads of flex. The AfterShokz made with titanium so you can tug and twist them as you please.

We found wearing them around the neck comfortable and could easily place them in our pocket. Another great feature is the construction is IP55 certified making them waterproof. Wearing the headphone is lightweight at 30 grams, and with the soft silicone covering, we found them staying in place when jumping? The components placed comfortably without getting in your way. Furthermore, you can use the earphones hands-free as each speaker equipped with noise-canceling microphones.


How well does the Trekz Air Perform?

We found setting up the headphones easy as the female voice greets you to confirm a secure Bluetooth connection. Both sides of the earphones have a small housing packed with the controls and batteries. The control is simple to use and found on the right side to boost the volume. Using the headphones, we found no sound leakage even around the office. For use at the gym or office the sound is excellent but not ideal to use as regular headphones. Using the Trekz Air in busy streets we found the bass not high enough.

Pumping up the volume leaves you with vibrations felt in your jawbone and a tickle in the ears. Therefore, we would not recommend them for commuting and best used at the gym. Another problem we had is the short-lived battery use. Yes, we know the earphones light in weight, but we only got six hours of use. So if you only want to use the earphones at the gym for an hour, the quick charge of 15-minutes is okay.

Should You Buy it?

For working out at the gym or office, the AfterShokz Trekz Air are the best noise-isolating headphones to have. The earphones offer you a comfortable and stable fit that will stay in place when running. The speakers are positioned well with the other components, and you can even wear them with a cap. However, we do not recommend using them outdoors where there is loads of external noise. The overall sound does not stand up to standard headphones, and the higher the volume is turned up you will feel some vibration on the jaw.


Our Verdict

If you need situational awareness, we can recommend using the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones. We found the resonating sound in the head not disturbing and sound as if you are listening to music over standard speakers in a room. We found using the earphones with different activities a pleasure as the compression spring around the back keeps the earphones in place. The biggest problem you will have is relaxing with them with your head on a pillow as the headphones will push out. When it comes to sound, the earphones do not compete well with other models in the price range. However, if you need a pair of headphones to wear with a hat or glasses, the AfterShokz Trekz Air come recommended. You will be able to clean them easily with the rubberized coating and hold position well.
