In March 2021, we tested Lucyd Lyte Bluetooth sunglasses, a pair of shades with built-in off-ear headphones. Lucyd Lyte didn’t quite impress—mostly because their tiny built-in speakers are nearly as audible to everyone around you as they are to you. Today, we’ll take a look at two models of bone-conduction headphones suggested to us in that review’s comment section—the AfterShokz Titanium and AfterShokz Air.

I purchased one each of the Titanium and Air in early March and have used them regularly in the months since. Bone-conduction headphones are definitely not for everyone—but they’re fantastic for people who need the particular mix of comfort, awareness of surroundings, and improved hygiene they offer.
