Bone conduction headsets are a great way to get your music or phone calls while keeping your ears open for external sounds. I use my Opencomm headset everyday when I run, then when I’m on daily Zoom calls. The newest headset is OpenRun Pro, which we saw at CES 2022.
About OpenRun Pro
A one-piece bone conduction headset with mic that fits around your ears, the Openrun Pro is 20% smaller than previous models.
This headset features the 9th generation bone conduction technology, and introduces TurboPitch – adding two bass enhancers around the tranducers. Along with their PremiumPitch 2.0 technology, this will provide crisp and clear midrange to high frequency sounds.
If you need to take a call, the dual noise-canceling microphone are there to reduce whatever surrounding noise you have. The microphones even do a decent job when you’re in mid-run, and your huffing up a hill.
The headset is IP55 waterproof – perfect for sweating at the gym. Not meant for swimming, but the headphones probably won’t stay on when submerged.
Openrun Pro charges in 1.5 hours (with a 5 minute quick charge option). The headset can run for up to 10 hours at 75% volume on an iOS14 device.
One of the other great features to bone conduction headsets is you can move the device around to still hear a call and also be able to talk with people in the room. I sometimes also have to be on another call, where I have an Airpods Pro in one ear, but still can have the Shokz headset sending audio as well.
