Design

AfterShokz BlueZ 2S are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The Aftershokz BlueZ 2S headphones have a sleek design with only two buttons on each side of the earbud, which is about half an inch in width that can be easily turned around your neck when you’re not using them.

The Aftershokz blueZ 2S has been designed to work seamlessly with any Bluetooth-enabled device while offering great sound quality thanks to proprietary bone conduction technology. After Shokz also offers a one-year warranty for product defects or manufacturing flaws through their online customer support team at any time during this period of time it may need repair or replacement!

The underside of the Bluez 2S headphone contains volume buttons, charging port, power button, and LED indicator. The left transducer has a multi-function button. There is one flaw in the design: the placement of these three buttons.

Instead of placing the buttons on the underside or top of the headphones, I think they should be positioned on the side so it is easier to press them. When you have a firm grip it can sometimes take some effort to use this without accidentally pushing other buttons.

Performance:

The first challenge of using the Bluez 2S as an open ear headphone is pairing it with your phone. You simply hold down the power button for five seconds, then select them from your phone’s Bluetooth menu. Once paired, put on the headset and you’re good to go; these don’t have speakers over your ears which make this a comfortable experience that even people who are not used to wearing headsets forget about after they’ve been worn for a few minutes.

Streaming music is easy with the Bluez 2S headphones. Once you start your audio, push once on the multi-function button to play or pause it. It takes two clicks on this button to skip to a new song if that was what you wanted. If not, press again and hold for two seconds to change EQ levels.

If you receive a call while streaming audio, you can answer it by pressing the multi-function button once or reject it by holding the multi-function button for 2 seconds. If you do answer the call, you can mute it by simultaneously pressing the volume up and down buttons. When you’re ready to end your call, press the multi-function button once again.

This new pair of Bluez 2S open ear headphones from AfterShokz offers a number of features that set them apart from traditional closed-back models.

Upon the first test, they show promise. The test subject wore the headphones while on an elliptical machine and mowing the lawn; in both tests, he noticed how securely the transducers stayed in his ears as he sweated profusely. He also found that they did not slip out during bodily movements like bending over.

One of our favorite features about the AfterShokz Bluez 2S open ear headphone is that it doesn’t have a cord to worry about. We don’t have to untangle cords before putting them on or worry about getting caught on anything when working out.

Another feature we love is that you can wear these headphones all day and be pain-free! Maybe it’s just us, but if we wear earbuds for an extended amount of time (without taking breaks) then my ears would begin to hurt from having the buds jammed in there–but that never happens with these headphones.

Sweat didn’t affect the performance of the Bluez 2S at all. I managed to work up a decent sweat while testing the headphones; and – never any issues! Athletes, runners, cyclists will love this safety touch.

Sound Quality:

When I started using these headphones, I found it hard to judge audio quality. However, the fact that you can still hear your surroundings made me get used to them more quickly.

Eventually, I adjusted to the Bluez 2S and found that the audio quality was very good. The sound clarity was crisp, but at times too “scratchy”. Also, if a movie had an explosion or song with strong bass, it would occasionally get distorted.

The call quality was strong. I had no difficulty understanding the caller and they had no difficulty understanding me.

Though the sound quality was great, there were some times when I experienced a ticklish feeling from the bone conduction on my head.

The sound quality was hard to gauge at first. Putting the headphones on is a new experience because they close off your ears, but still, allow you to hear ambient noise like normal. It’s different from listening to music from a standalone stereo because once we were wearing them we had trouble judging how good it sounded.

I had no difficulty understanding callers and they had no difficulty understanding me. However, the vibration from bone conduction would sometimes tickle the side of my head on occasion. It wasn’t a serious issue and I had never experienced this when using earbuds before.

Battery Backup:

The AfterShokz BlueZ open ear headphones had a battery life of about 12 hours.

It does, but the Aftershokz BlueZ only lasted for up to twelve hours before needing recharging. However, this is still a pretty impressive performance considering how much work these will be put through when being used as an exercise accessory!

Connection Range:

I was able to walk approximately 40ft away from my phone and continue using them without any disconnection or audio distortion whatsoever. The range on Bluetooth connection is very good with no interference at all in dense environments (e.g., near WiFi routers). Battery backup will last for up to 120 minutes if you have one hour of charging time – that’s actually not bad!

Pros
  • AfterShokz BlueZ 2S headphones are lightweight
  • sweat and water resistant
  • easy to use.
Cons
  • It only lasts for up to 12 hours before needing recharging
  • wire is too short for some users (we had one tester that constantly pulled the cord)
  • sound quality at times was “scratchy.”

Summary:

We really loved AfterShokz BlueZ 2S open-ear headphones. They’re lightweight, comfortable, and great for exercise! The bone-conduction feature is a unique innovation that made us feel on the cutting edge of technology–and we know how to take advantage of it. There are only two problems with these headphones: they don’t last as long without charging, and they can be uncomfortable when worn all day (due to their design).

We found Aftershokz BlueZ 2S Open Ear Headphones very useful during our workouts. It’s not often you find wireless workout headphones while still giving you the ability to hear your surroundings – which makes them just perfect for athletes or enthusiasts who have an active lifestyle. We love that there is no cord to get in the way and no need to worry about them falling out of your ears. But, these Aftershokz BlueZ 2S Open Ear Headphones are not for those who wear glasses or sunglasses – they can’t be worn while wearing eyewear.

The AfterShokz Bluez 2S Bone Conduction Headphones are a great option for anyone who wants to enjoy their favorite tunes without the inconvenience of earbuds. They work by picking up vibrations from sound through your cheekbones, which is why they don’t need any cords or plugs in order to produce crisp audio quality on the go. With 20 hours of battery life and noise canceling capabilities, these headphones make it easy to listen uninterrupted while commuting, working out, or traveling long distances.
