If you’re in the market for some new AfterShokz headphones, chances are you probably have some questions that need answers. Comparing AfterShokz headphone models is a science, and we’re here to help break it down so you can settle on the bone conduction headphones that are right for you. Check out the main differences between Air and Titanium to discover which AfterShokz headphones model is right for you.
Why AfterShokz Air Are Great
Named for their easy, breezy all-day comfort and their lightweight titanium frame, AfterShokz Air headphones offer high-performance sound quality and a stylish look at an affordable price. Features like patented bone conduction technology, dual noise-canceling microphones, and an updated design style make Air the perfect choice for athletes, working professionals, or everyday people looking to stay aware of their surroundings without compromising on functionality.
AfterShokz Air are available in Canyon Red, Slate Grey, Forest Green, and Ocean Blue.
Why AfterShokz Titanium Are Great
If you’re new to the concept of bone conduction technology, AfterShokz Titanium headphones is the perfect starter product. Our entry-level model Titanium features our patented technology and signature open-ear comfort. Titanium is perfect for everyday versatility at a budget-friendly price. With a classic fit that comes in two sizes, you can listen to your audio while staying connected around the house, on a run, or on-the-go.
AfterShokz Titanium are available in Cosmic Black, Canyon Red, and Ocean Blue. Titanium Mini are available in Slate Grey, Red, and Pink.
How Titanium and Air Are Different
Although the two models feature some significant similarities, such as IP55 sweat-resistant durability, 6-hour battery life, and the ability to take music and calls, they have some key differences, as well.
Redesigned Frame - AfterShokz Titanium feature a part-titanium, part-plastic frame that weighs in at 36 grams, whereas AfterShokz Air are slightly lighter at 30 grams, with a lightweight wraparound titanium frame. Air headphones also have a slightly redesigned transducer and a second-skin feel. Although both headphones can withstand workouts and the elements, Air is more flexible, resulting in a bit more protection.
Fit Options - As mentioned earlier, Titanium is the only AfterShokz headphone model that comes in two different sizes: a standard size and a mini. Titanium Mini is recommended for children, teens, and those with smaller heads who prefer a more snug fit. If you’re not a fan of too much added space between the wraparound frame and the back of your head, snag a pair of AfterShokz Titanium Mini for a fitted feel.
Back-A-Track - Unlike our Titanium model, AfterShokz Air was designed with a back-a-track (rewind/replay) feature, allowing you to go back to the last song played if you accidentally skip or want to hear it again. Simply triple-click the multifunction button to activate back-a-track!
Affordability - Both Titanium and Air wireless headphones are budget-friendly, but Titanium is our most affordable option (priced at $79.95 plus tax) and is often recommended for those not looking to splurge too much, but still wanting to enjoy quality sound.
When it comes down to it, both Air and Titanium headphones are amazing options, and we’re big fans! If you’re looking for even more information before you make your final purchase decision, check out these other blog resources:
