New Travel Must Have for Parents – AfterShokz Bluez 2S Headphones + Giveaway

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please see policies for more information.

With all the travel I’ve been doing lately, I have been trying some different products because sometimes what I thought would be perfect, didn’t work out so well.

(Disclosure: Product was provided to try and give away but opinions are my own.)

AfterShokz Headphones

One of the things I always bring with me are headphones. Now, I thought I’d want nice noise canceling headphones, but being a mom traveling with kids I am constantly taking them off so I can hear their requests (or random facts) all throughout the trip. So I end up with headphones on one ear. I don’t like ear buds because they always end up hurting my ear at some point and I still have the same issue of hearing my family. I was SUPER interested to try out these AfterShokz Bluez 2S because they don’t go in your ear which allows you to hear what’s going on around you – but they don’t leak much sound so they aren’t obnoxious to everyone around you. Because of this they are awesome for exercising on your own (you can hear more of your surroundings), travel like I mentioned above or any other time that you might want to still be able to hear while listening to music, an audiobook or podcast (like at home when the baby is sleeping).

A fun bonus to these – my husband was born with microtia (or an underdeveloped outer ear) he can hear but it’s very muffled on the one side. With these he can hear REALLY well because of the bone conduction technology, which makes taking calls in the car (because he works on the road) so much easier for him!

Here’s my kid hogging wearing them.


I am so excited to be able to give a set of these away to one of you because we are loving them so much. In fact I need to order another pair or 2 because we are all fighting over who gets to use these ones!

  1. I love the idea of being able to hear what’s going on around you still. Sounds perfect for me with my littles.

  2. I’ve never heard of this technology! How interesting! Thanks for opening my eyes… or, my ears 😉

  3. These look cool for someone who cannot use ear buds without pain.

  4. It has such awesome features but I have to say that I love the design so much!

  5. These look really cool. I like that they don’t cover your ears.

    I like the idea of not having anything in the ear. It drives me crazy. Plus I like being able to hear what is going on around me.

  7. I think these would be great especially for Biggs who has hearing issues. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I love that you can run with them and still be able to hear the traffic. Very important!

    I love that that don’t block out what is going on around you and that they are sweat proof!

    These would be great for a mama who also needs to be able to multi-listen!

  11. I like that you can hear stuff around you – I wear my headphones primarily to run and I need to hear if a serial killer is coming up behind me. 😀

  12. These look fabulous! One thing I don’t like about traditional earbuds/headphones is that you can’t hear anything around you. Sometimes that’s good, frequently not so much.

  13. I have some hearing loss and it would be great to try these, I bet I would hear soooo much better!

  14. I would love for my husband to try these. He zones out with regular headphones.

    I love that they are on your skull bones so i am free to hear other things going on around me as I run!

  16. I like that you can hear other noises as well, I worry about hearing cars when I’m running.

  17. wow. i’ve never heard of these! would be perfect for my upcoming trip!

  18. They look like they will be so much more comfortable than traditional headphones with an earbud squished into your ear canal. Ouch! I can never wear those for very long. Would love to give these a try!

  19. I didn’t even know such technology existed! I love that they don’t go in or on your ear.

  20. Love these for my two girls who wear hearing aids and can’t wear headphones!

  21. Tracie Cooper Reply

    I love that they don’t go inside your ear. I prefer to not put anything my ear and they are also safe since you can still hear what’s going on around you!

  22. They sound like they’d be safer for exercising around traffic.

  23. These look amazing! I have the same problem with the ear buds hurting my ears. I also have a son who is a constant observer and wants to tell you ALL of those observations! Great to not have the constant in-out of ear buds to listen to him!

  24. Noelle Carroll Reply

    I like that they dont go in the ear. My son recently discovered ear buds and I hate him wearing them but he loves it! So these would definitely be the answer to that

  25. I would love to try the new bone conduction technology. My favorite feature is that they look pretty comfortable to wear.

  26. I like that they allow more hearing of your surroundings, which would be great for running outside.

  27. I like that it’s sweat resistant. This would be great for gym workouts or a jog at the park.

  28. Katie Bellamy Reply

    I love the way these fit! Ear buds never stay in my ears!!

  29. I love that these sit on your ear and nothing goes in the ear.

    I love that with these it may be easier for me to hear my little man when he is casually talking to me from the other room. His tone of voice is so high pitched and soft that if I’m not looking at him when he is talking I don’t always understand him or hear him. It’s not him, I’ve never been able to really hear certain pitches and volumes so I’m excited about trying these!

  31. Ok, I totally need these for each of my teenagers- so they can actually HEAR me when I’m calling them instead of hearing, “Oh, sry, I had my headphones on.”

  32. I love that AfterShokz Bluez 2S looks super cool, comfortable and beautiful!
    Thank You for the chance

  33. Oh I would love to try these. I can not hear out of one ear, they said that both inner and outer ear hear fine, but do not connect after a car accident years ago. I would love to try the bone conduction technology and see if I can hear too. Oh that would be so amazing!

  34. I like that these allow the wearer to still hear the noise around them – it’s much safer for road running that way.

    I like that they don’t leak the sound but also don’t cover your ears ….

  36. lissa crane Reply

    I love that they aren’t clunky, over the ear headphones, but yet not painful earbuds either! They are a perfect mix of whats great about each of those options! They looks awesome!

  37. Lindsey Khatri Reply

    I love that they don’t cover your ears, I find other headphones so uncomfortable, I would really like to try these!

  38. elizabeth miller Reply

    I love that these can be worn with being directed straight into the ear. It drives me crazy my daughter having blaring headphones directly over her ears.
