Clever headphones sit in front of the ear, helping riders hear traffic sounds on their ride as well as music

Heard good things from Core Bike about AfterShokz?

AfterShokz, fresh from its Core Bike debut, has hailed the response from retailers to the unique open ear headphones.

Unlike conventional headphones and earbuds that use the eardrums to transmit sound, AfterShokz headphones sit in front of the ear and utilise bone conduction technology to deliver stereophonic sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ear – leaving the outer ear open to hear friendly as well as warning sounds.

The firm said: "Cyclists want to stay connected whilst on their bikes, listen to their music and take calls on their smart phones but at the same time keep safe. Cyclists are turning to AfterShokz as the must have cycling safety accessory in the same way as they adopted wearing safety helmets.

"The business case for stocking AfterShokz headphones is compelling, there’s a high sales to demonstration rate, they promote safety in cycling, they have a small product footprint, there’s no minimum order and there is also local event sponsorship for stockists."

Dealers can order the product or find out more from Rodney Annet at Pinpoint Consumer Electronics on 01606 558428;
