Bone conduction headphones are the ultimate running buddy for anyone who wants to rock out to their tunes while keeping their safety on track. They’re like a superhero that not only saves your hearing but also adds a little extra spring to your step. Shokz is the king brand of bone conduction headphone brands, and the OpenRun Pro is the king of Shokz’s line of products, being their 9th generation product.
Let’s start with the obvious, bone conduction headphones don’t block your ear canals. This means you can hear all the important things, like the sound of cars honking, dogs barking, or your significant other calling you to come home (just kidding). With bone conduction headphones, you’ll never have to choose between your music and your safety again.
Another perk of these headphones is that they’re super comfortable. No more earache after a long run, no more having to constantly adjust your headphones. They’re so lightweight, you’ll forget you’re even wearing them. Plus, they don’t cause any irritation in your ear canal, which is great news for those of us who have sensitive ears.
Oh, and did I mention that bone conduction headphones are perfect for all weather conditions? Whether it’s raining, snowing, or just hot and humid, these headphones will still be working just fine. They’re like a weatherproof warrior, always ready for action.
And let’s talk about the sound quality. It’s like having a personal DJ playing the tunes that get you pumped up, straight into your bones. You’ll feel the rhythm in your soul, and with the extra energy boost, you’ll be able to run for miles and miles.
Finally, these headphones are super easy to use. Just put them on and go! There’s no complicated setup or adjustment needed. They’re like your lazy best friend, always ready to join in on the fun without putting in any effort.
The sound quality of the Shokz OpenRun Pro is amazing with powerful basses, they are IP55 Water-Resistant and they’ve got more than 10 hours of battery life. That should be enough for your next marathon! Little side note: charging is done with a proprietary cable, so don’t lose it!!
A side button allows you to pick up calls or interact with your phone assistant. Pretty neat.

Back in Quebec City after an internship at the Ottawa Citizen and the Edmonton Sun, and a contract at the Windsor Star, I quickly developed a large clientele including some of the most prestigious Canadian newspapers.
