As much as it’s fun to listen to music while running or hiking, it may not always be the safest thing to do if you can’t hear your surroundings while you’re actively moving through them. However, you can still enjoy your tunes without tuning out the world. A pair of Exobone Open-Ear Conduction Headphones can let you listen to music without blocking out the sounds of the world around you, and for a limited time, they’re $80 off at only $76.99 (Reg. $157).
Exobones use a two-speaker system to play music directly through the ear canal without obscuring other noises. They work by sending sound past the eardrum directly into your inner ear. It could be a convenient way to enjoy your favorite music or podcasts without missing out on the sound of the world around you.
Exobone Open-Ear Conduction headphones are lightweight (less than one ounce), wireless, rechargeable, and feature a sleek design. The bud-free foldable design could be a comfort compared to some bulkier headphones or in-ear headphones. If there’s some moisture while you’re running, you don’t have to sweat it. These headphones are rainproof, though you don’t want to fully submerge them in water. If you get a call while you’re using your Exobones, you can accept or deny it using built-in controls. It even has a mic so you don’t have to switch to another or break your stride.
All of this culminates in a device that could be an excellent pair if you like to have a soundtrack for your workout or just want to keep some situational awareness while you listen.
