Custom Trekz Titanium demo stations can be found at all 200+ Brookstone locations throughout the United States.
“Trekz Titanium have generated an incredible amount of interest and excitement at the consumer level since their Indiegogo launch. But because the open ear listening experience is so unique, we hear regularly that people want to try before they buy,” said Kim Fassetta, Chief Marketing Officer, AfterShokz. “That’s why the partnership with Brookstone is so special. They understand that and have set up their stores, from demo displays to the training of their associates, to accommodate customers’ curiosity. We are pleased to offer Trekz Titanium through such a well-known and respected retailer as Brookstone and we are confident that potential customers will enjoy the experience Brookstone will offer.”
“Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone conduction headphones are a breakthrough in personal listening,” said Kiran Smith, Chief Marketing Officer, Brookstone. “Being able to hear music and the surrounding environment simultaneously is the exactly the sort of innovation Brookstone loves to introduce to its customers. I love using mine, and I love looking at each person’s face when they experience bone conduction headphones for the first time.”
Designed to ensure the ultimate level of awareness and comfort—without compromising on premium sound—Trekz Titanium are wireless, open ear sport headphones built with runners, cyclists and hikers in mind. Users can expect exceptional sound quality thanks to proprietary technologies such as PremiumPitch+™, which delivers dynamic range and truly powerful bass.
Trekz Titanium uses bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ears through the cheekbones, bypassing the eardrums completely. They rest just in front of the ears, leaving the ear canals completely open, allowing users to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds while tuned in to audio. Bluetooth® connectivity provides the ability to be free of wires and make and receive phone calls.
Trekz Titanium is available now for $129.95 at Brookstone retail locations and at Brookstone.com.
AfterShokz brings patented bone conduction technology, initially developed for military special operations and law enforcement by Voxtech in 2001, to sport, mobile and Bluetooth® headphones designed and priced for everyday use. Through a suite of proprietary audio technologies and the only completely open ear design, AfterShokz headphones deliver premium stereo sound and a promise of safety and comfort that is second to none. Since its inception in 2011, the company has been committed to innovating unconventionally and making situational awareness a priority.
