Using bone conduction technology, sound is transmitted via vibrations to your inner ear, bypassing your eardrums. The OpenFit™ design keeps your ears open, so you can still hear what's happening around you.

The Aftershokz Sportz 3 uses bone conduction technology to transmit sound to your inner ears, bypassing your eardrums. Listen to music and podcasts from any device with a 3.5mm jack.
The headphone band wraps around the back of the head, while the transducers rest on the cheekbones in front of your ears, so it stays secure while going about your daily activities. Stereo sound is transmitted through vibrations to your inner ears, bypassing your eardrums. Comfortable and lightweight to wear, the headphones do not cover your ears so you can still hear the sounds around you.
How do these bone conduction headphones work?
A common misconception is that our ears are the only instruments we possess that allows us to hear. Although you are not entirely incorrect, there is another method of listening: bone conduction. Aftershokz headphones have a pair of transducers to power your music into your head. With one transducer resting on each side of your head, vibrations pass sound off of the surface of your face. This contact point allows the headphones to conduct sound onto the bones of your head. These vibrations send sound all the way from your cheekbones to your inner ear, allowing sound to reach the cochlea without even using your ear drum.
