Aftershokx Trekx Titanium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review

Music is a HUGE part of my running strategy. Whether it be a casual run around my neighborhood, or a PR attempt at a big race, I always have my playlist perfected and ready. My hubbie had been trying to get me to try wireless headphones for awhile when running, but I, being resistant to change and a bit stuck in my ways, have always ran with my freebie white corded earbuds from Apple. When Sweat Pink presented me with the opportunity to partner with and try the Aftershokx Trekx Titanium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones I figured now was a better time than any to see if wireless headphones were for me!

Spoiler alert - I LOVED them :)

Below are 8 reasons I am making the switch to Aftershokx Trekx Titanium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones:

1. Comfort! These headphones are super lightweight and made of a flexible titanium design, so if it weren't for the great music pumping through them, I think I'd forget I had them on half the time!! I also love the fact that I don't have to jam any ear buds into my ear, which never stay put and always have to be reinserted several times throughout a run! They did have about a week or two comfort break in period. It's sort of like if you never wore flip flops and then suddenly started wearing them fir the first time ever. It may feel weird or bothersome having something rub between your toes. That's how these felt on my ears at first. Now they are super-duper comfy, but I just wanted to throw that out there honestly if anyone else was making the switch!

2. Safety! These are super unique and made with an open air design, delivering the sound through ear drum vibrations. Since my ears are uncovered while I wear these I can still hear and be aware of my surroundings. I love this feature because I often jog in the earlier mornings and share paths with other runners and mountain bikers. It makes me feel 100% more safe knowing that I can hear someone approaching me from behind and still listen to my music! Before having these headphones, if I was running in the early morning or a new area, I would carry my phone and play music out loud. I'm so glad I no longer have to use that tactic!

3. Sweat Resistant! Trekx are IP55 certified to survive event the sweatiest runs! I have had friends with other wireless headphones that have broken due to getting too wet from sweat!! How does that even make sense? Sports headphones should be designed to survive sweaty workouts and I'm so thankful that these are able to stand up to the sweat test - especially since it's going to be well over 100 degrees here for the next several months in Phoenix!

4. Long Battery Life! I'll be honest, if something needs to constantly re-charged, I won't use it. I mean, I am responsible for keeping 2 children fed, alive, and happy, I can't possibly be expected to keep all of my electronics at constant full-charge too! That's why I love that these headphones have a 6+ battery life before they need to be recharged. That's long enough to get me through a full week of running. Once a week charging I can manage.

5. Incredible sound quality! My music sounds so incredibly good through these earphones and I have experienced ZERO skipping. Incredible.

6. They are Pink! This might be a vain reason, but I love bright and colorful workout gear and gadgets, they make me happy and motivate me too. Pink not your favorite color? They also come in blue, grey, and yellow too!

7. They come with a 45 day money back guarantee! Incredible!! I wish everything came with that kind of a guarantee! Trust me though, you'll love them!

8. Free Water Bottle! If you order your Aftershokx Trekx Titanium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones through this special link HERE you also get a free water bottle with your purchase! Two running essentials: water and great tunes!

Speaking of great tunes, what are some of your current favorites! I'm in desperate need of freshening up my playlist!


  1. I love that one of your reasons is PINK..def also one of my reasons for loving them! They are also just simply the BEST.

  2. Pink is a great reason, I think ;-). I'm super stoked on these headphones - I wear them almost everywhere!
