I love my Aftershokz Air headphones with bone conduction audio technology because I can still hear what’s going on around while listening to my jams as I walk, run or hike. When Aftershokz launched Optishokz Revvez, sport sunglasses with the same technology I had to give them a try. I’ve tested them out a couple of times now and here’s what I think.
First, they take some getting used to. On the headphones, the transducer sits just in front of your ear. On the sunglasses it’s right behind your ear. When there’s a song with a heavy bass, I feel much more of a vibration with the sunglasses than headphones.
They are super light-weight and sweat and water resistant. They don’t slip because the part around the ear bends, so you get a secure fit. The polarized lens are great. I appreciate they didn’t skimp on quality with the lens. The battery last for six hours so that’s great for longer distances, especially hiking. After a workout I’m that person who pushes her sunglasses on top of her head. That’s the only time these sunnies slid. It’s an issue I can deal with. I’m loving the sunglasses and headphones combo and I guess they really are the best sunglasses you’ve ever heard.
