I have never listened to music while cycling because I feel I simply do not receive enough information about what’s going on around me in traffic, and I think you understand what I mean. This problem has been ingeniously solved by Aftershokz headphones, which transmit the sound through the rider cheeks!
Yes, you’ve read well, as these headphones do not enter your ears, they rather are suspended on your face, thanks to the so called “Dual Suspension Bone Conduction System”. Obviously, this is water resistant, featuring a microphone so that the rider can also use his or her mobile phone, a volume control, and other common specs of nowadays gadgets. So, I’m really curious how Metallica sounds with Aftershokz, when pedaling hard to get to the office.
