Aftershokz Bluez 2 2nd Gen Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones

The only Bluetooth stereo headphones that allow 
you to tune in to music or calls without tuning 
out the world, all with complete wireless 
freedom. Our open ear bone conduction headphones 
guide mini vibrations through your cheekbones to 
your inner ears, ensuring you can be open to 
ambient sound, even when you’re plugged in, working out or on the go.

Bone Conduction

We can't say we invented bone conduction, but our 
technological enhancements certainly push its 
boundaries. Our patented open ear design guides 
mini vibrations through your cheekbones to your 
inner ears, delivering stereo sound without 
plugging or covering them. Sound waves travel 
directly to the cochlea, bypassing the eardrums 
completely an alternative for anyone concerned 
about potential hearing damage caused by 
traditional headphones and ear buds, and even a 
solution for those with certain forms of hearing loss.


OpenFit makes it possible to experience ambient 
sound awareness without any limitations, through 
a design that offers extended comfort and a 
secure fit vital for high-impact activities or long-term wear.


PremiumPitch is our unique development in bone 
conduction headphones audio, where remarkably 
clean sound and discernable bass comes from 
patented dual suspension beryllium copper infused transducers.

Custom Equalization

Custom equalization adjustments take that a step 
further, allowing you to tune to preference at the touch of a button.


Though a range of sound leakage is common with 
almost all headphones and ear buds,

Most of us don't want to share our music and 
conversations with others nearby. LeakSlayer 
technology significantly reduces natural sound 
leakage, effectively allowing you to keep sound to yourself.

Sweat Resistant

Nanotechnology treated to repel sweat and other 
moisture, rest assured these Bluetooth stereo 
headphones will play on through your most 
rigorous sweat sessions or even the elements.

Six Hours

Durably built to endure anyone-anywhere use, but 
also shockingly lightweight. Expect six hours of 
play per charge and if you give them a boost the 
same time as your mobile device, you’ll never 
have to be without wireless stereo sound.

Optional reflective stickers can be applied to 
increase visibility in darkness and an adjustable 
tension band assures a snug fit to any size head.

Audrey Says
Voice prompts that are meant to be more than a 
companion; these are designed to add ease to the 
user experience. With accessibility in mind, 
Audrey Says guides you through power, pairing and 
playing, and will even alert you when you'll need a recharge.

Complete Controls

A multifunction button delivers complete control 
of music and calls right from the wireless 
headphone unit, which means your mobile device 
can remain safely tucked away during use.


Your wireless freedom doesn't have to be plagued 
by traditional limits. Confidently stash your 
mobile device anywhere on your body or even just 
somewhere nearby without the inconvenience of signal drops and music skips.


Dual microphones in these stereo headphones 
deliver clear communication even in noisy environments.


Our commitment to quality is paramount, and 
backed by a hassle-free two-year warranty.
