REVIEW: AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Headphones
One of the main reason AfterShokz Trekz work well for outdoor activities, specifically golf is the fact that your ears are still able to hear the world around you. If someone suddenly yells fore, you will be able to hear it. If there is a horn blast, or yell, or some other noise that your should be aware of, these allow you to still hear those sounds. While sometimes you might want to tune out the world and just listen to music, the Trekz Titanium allow you to have music in the background your activity, more like a soundtrack in a movie.
Initially the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones offered a weird sensation, especially when the volume was up as you could feel the vibrations on your face, but after a few minutes that weirdness went away. The other issue that comes with these is sound leakage. When played at higher volume, people around you can listen with you. To be fair almost all headphones are like that. AfterShokz does have “Leakslayer” technology to combat that, but there is only so much it can do at high volume. Personally I never listen to music that loud and especially if I’m trying to be part of a group, lower volume keeps my music private and allows me to still participate and hear the group.
I’m no audiophile, but I can appreciate high quality headphone. AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones are not going to compete with high end studio headphones, but they do a good job doing what they were designed to do; allow you to listen to music and still hear the environment around you. The treble comes through nice and clear, but the bass can be somewhat lacking. These are activity headphones and they work amazing for that. I liked them on the course so that I could listen to music and still participate with the group. If you like music while you golf, these are the perfect blend of privacy and safety.
