Th­ese bone con­duc­tion Blue­tooth head­phones of­fer a unique lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. In­stead of in­sert­ing mini speak­ers into your ear­holes, you sit the pads on your cheek­bones and vi­bra­tions are pumped di­rectly into your eardrums. While the the­ory may sound weird, the re­sult is sur­pris­ingly clear and crisp. The ob­vi­ous ben­e­fit is that you can still hear things go­ing on around you, which is a mas­sive safety boost when cy­cling. A large but­ton on the left pad makes it easy to an­swer calls, but the vol­ume but­tons could be more pro­nounced for use with gloves. The six(ish)-hour bat­tery life is rea­son­able for Blue­tooth ’phones, and with two sizes to choose from you should be able to find a per­fect fit. The price is steep and they’re not par­tic­u­larly light, but well worth it if you reg­u­larly ride with head­phones. www.after­shokz.co.uk
