Aftershokz headphones offer safety and comfort as two key benefits. Scientific studies have found that extended use of regular headphones and earbuds promote hearing loss and damage to the eardrum. Since Aftershokz headphones do not use the eardrums to transmit sound, they provide consumers with a quality stereophonic listening experience while reducing the risk of eardrum damage. In addition, Aftershokz Headphones are far more comfortable and stable than earbuds, especially when used over extended periods of time. Many people find earbuds to be uncomfortable to wear and they tend to fall out of the ear during vigorous activity.
