The wife bought a pair of these a while ago and loves them. She has a Garmin Fenix 5s watch which she uses to play music and has had real problems finding a decent pair of headphones that don’t drop out (usually down to watch on left wrist, BT receiver in right earphone), but she’s been using the these (same model as tested) for a few months now and had no issues whatsoever.
I’ve never been a fan of listening to anything while running or riding as I prefer to hear what is going on, but I am tempted to get a pair myself, especially for long road rides.
Edit: They do a mini version now too with a smaller loopPosted 3 weeks ago
Really like mine – use them mainly at work however for Teams calls and listening to musicPosted 3 weeks ago
I might have been interested in these if they were also suitable for males. 😉Posted 3 weeks ago
Absolute game changer. All the gravel rides near me that were too boring are now good as I can catch up on my favourite radio shows.Posted 3 weeks ago
Love mine – think they were cheap with Strava discountPosted 3 weeks ago
Ive got some older Titanium ones, and i wouldnt be without them.
Easy to wear all day, (and totally forget youve got them on)
Music quality is fine
Call quality is good, even in an office.
If you end up in a louder environment, there isnt much you can do as they (obviously) do nothing to block out external sounds but still my go to headphones for general use.Posted 3 weeks ago
I would be keen to give some newer generation ones a go, when my Tis eventually give up (though no sign of that yet)
Both of my old wired and the new Ti ones are useless if running/riding into headwind…but otherwise ok.Posted 3 weeks ago
If they are IP55, they have been tested as protected against dust and low pressure jets of water – so certainly up to a downpour (better than a lot of outdoor lighting, for instance), but not submersionPosted 3 weeks ago
What are they like for road cycling, at my awsum speedz will they still sound ok or will the wind blast overwhelm the music?Posted 3 weeks ago
The wind blast will overwhelm the music if you are playing it at a sensible volume so you can still be aware of your surroundings.Posted 3 weeks ago
I find them ok in the windPosted 3 weeks ago
I have the older ones. In fast traffic or noisy areas or down steep hills they’re too quiet, but they’re pretty good. Only gripe is the band is a bit small for my fat head/neck so they pull slightly on my ears. Only annoying after several hours/when my hair gets too long.
I’m currently waiting for the rain to stop and will then ride off around the woods listening to Adam Buxton’s latest podcast on a set of AftershoxPosted 3 weeks ago
Do any glasses-wearers have first-hand experience? I can imagine they may not fit as well.Posted 2 weeks ago

Wore mine today with my Smith helmet and Oakleys – all fits nicelyPosted 2 weeks ago

I’ve not tried it them yet but have been tempted by something like https://www.cat-ears.com/ to deal with the wind noise problem (which is just as much of an issue with other headphones I’ve cycled with). I’m rarely wearing a helmet when I’m using my aftershokz which makes it more difficult to deal with.Posted 2 weeks ago
