If you’re in the market for some new AfterShokz headphones, chances are you probably have some questions that need answers. Comparing AfterShokz headphone models is a science, and we’re here to help break it down so you can settle on the bone conduction headphones that are right for you. Check out the main differences between Aeropex and Air.
Why AfterShokz Aeropex Are Great
Aeropex feature the most advanced bone conduction technology and the latest PremiumPitch 2.0+, meaning louder volume and more dynamic bass. If you’re into high-impact workouts, Aeropex are the perfect training partner. Aeropex headphones are certified with an IP67 waterproof rating.
This means that if you get caught in the rain during the last mile of a run or drop them in the water while you’re kayaking, they’ll still be a-ok. While we wouldn’t recommend Aeropex for swimming(that’s where our Xtrainerz come in), they fit a wide variety of activities.
Aeropex are available in Cosmic Black, Lunar Grey, Solar Red, and Blue Eclipse.
Why AfterShokz Air Are Great
Named after their easy, breezy all-day comfort and their lightweight titanium frame, AfterShokz Air headphones offer high-performance sound quality and a stylish look at an affordable price. Features like patented bone conduction technology and an updated design style make Air the perfect choice for athletes or everyday people looking to stay aware of their surroundings without compromising on performance.
Air are available in Canyon Red, Slate Grey, Forest Green, and Ocean Blue.
The Main Ways Aeropex and Air Are Different
Waterproof Rating - While your AfterShokz Air headphones can certainly stand up to the test of an intense workout, an IP55 rating means that this model is more suitable for being sweat and water-resistant, not waterproof. If you plan on being in some wicked elements and coming in contact with water, we recommend getting a pair of Aeropex instead.
Battery Life - If you’re training for a marathon or triathlon, both headphones deliver longterm power to help push you with every mile. AfterShokz Aeropex headphones are equipped with eight hours of continuous battery life, which means you can warm up and run your race without worrying about needing a quick charge. AfterShokz Air headphones provide a six-hour battery life, so they’re perfectly suited for everyday use or during your standard workout.
Redesigned Open-Fit - Although AfterShokz Air feature a lightweight wraparound titanium frame that weighs in at only 30g grams, Aeropex boasts our lightest design yet, totalling at just 26 grams. Aeropex headphones also feature a redesigned transducer for minimized vibrations and a more snug fit.
When it comes down to it, both Aeropex and Air headphones are amazing options, and we’re big fans! If you’re looking for even more information before you make your final purchase decision, check out these other blog resources:
