AfterShokz Aeropex review: Bone conduction makes these headphones cool and practical for outdoor use

Regardless of the form factor, connectivity, and any other specs, the idea behind most audio headsets is that the sound should pass by your eardrum. That makes sense — after all, that's how we all hear. Bone conduction headphones challenge that idea. They use a magical technology to bypass your eardrums altogether.

The result is headphones that are comfortable to wear even if you dislike the feeling of lodged in-ear buds or the weight and pressure of over-ear headsets. They also keep your ears open for maximum awareness. Whether or not this is a product you need is up to you, but if you're in the market for bone conduction headphones, AfterShokz's new Aeropex is an excellent option thanks to its comfort, stability, and sound quality.

Samsung app teardown reveals upcoming AKG-branded wireless earbuds

Samsung is harnessing its acquisition of audio company Harman to full effect with a number of AKG integrations into its own-brand product launches. In fact, you might recall that when Samsung came out with its latest wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds, AKG had a hand in tuning the sound. Now, thanks to an asset trawl into one of Samsung's apps, we have suspicions that AKG will go all-in with a pair of wireless earbuds to its name alongside a couple of other headphones in the near future.
