The new AfterShokz Aeropex

We are always happy when we can share big bone conduction news! This time the news is really big… even huge. AfterShokz announced the launch of a successor for their most popular and to my humble opinion best bone conduction headphones on the market; the AfterShokz Trekz Air. The successor of the AfterShokz Trekz Air will be the AfterShokz Aeropex. The Aeropex will be designed with enhanced bone conduction technology and will therefore be an improved version of its older brother. When we say enhanced, you are probably pretty curious which enhanced features one can expect when considering the AfterShokz Aeropex. Let’s take a deeper look at what we already know.

In the meantime we have received an AfterShokz Aeropex sample and we put it to an extensive test resulting into two new articles and reviews:

The AfterShokz Aeropex features and functionalities

The AfterShokz Aeropex has some of the Trekz Air looks but theoretically it’s a completely new design. It’s not only the looks that matter but also what’s underneath that fresh and flexible appearance. The new design results in 50% less sound leakage. The Air was already the best one on the market with regard to sound leakage, so this is a huge improvement. The LeakSlayer system has been removed and replaced by a waterproof frame with 50% less sound leakage.

Besides less sound leakage, the AfterShokz Aeropex gives you a better bass and less sound vibrations. This new bone conduction headphones model deals with a large spectrum of frequencies and all by limiting the vibration caused by the bass. The transducers of the new Bluetooth headset were turned 30 degrees, while the Air transducers are straight. This slight turn offers the user a more dynamic bass while reducing sound vibration at the same time.

30% smaller and 15% lighter… we never thought it would be possible to create an even smaller and lighter bone conduction headphones. AfterShokz nevertheless managed to design transducers which are 50% smaller and which consume 20% less energy. With regard to battery life, the Aeropex is also equipped with the Qualcomm Bluetooth QCC3024 which reduces energy consumption by the Bluetooth system with 50%.

The Trekz Air is an IP55 sweat / dust / rain resistant headphones. The AfterShokz Aeropex goes the extra mile and can be called a waterproof headphone thanks to IP67. The headphones can be submersed for 30 minutes at a maximal depth of 1 meter without being damaged. So, the least you can say, is that this model is even more sweat, rain and dust resistant.

The AfterShokz team has also enhanced the way the Aeropex is charged. Charging still goes via Micro USB but instead of plugging the charging cable, the new bone conduction model will use magnetic force. To avoid damage, the Aeropex also warns the user, before charging, when the headphones are still wet.

    Other reviews say it ditched micro USB for the proprietary magnetic charger, but you’re saying it’s both; can you clarify which it is?

      Hi Billy,

      It has a magnetic charger indeed, no USB charging anymore. For more info I would suggest to read my Aeropex review article & guide:
