Product review: AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones

Disclaimer: I received an AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!


I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical about the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones. I thought they looked a little funny and I was confused about how headphones that do not sit inside your actual ears would produce quality sound.🤔 I have never been more thrilled to be proven wrong! 🤗


AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones delivered on every aspect and I was surprised by how much I ended up loving them after testing them on a few workouts and runs both inside and outside. I even ended up using them outside of running (I wore them in my classroom during my planning periods so I could listen to music, but still hear the door incase any of my students stopped by to see me)!


Top 8 reasons why I loved the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones:

  • No wires (With previous headphones I would get caught in the wires and knock the headphones out of my ears as I ran)
  • Rechargeable battery with a really long battery life
  • Excellent sound quality (You can even feel the bass if you turn the music up loud enough :P)
  • Safe (As a petite and young looking female I don’t always feel comfortable running alone in the city with music, especially at night. These headphones allow me to listen to my music and to be aware of my surroundings)
  • Durable (I’ve dropped the headphones multiple times since I bought them #clutz and they have not broken 😂)
  • Able to listen to music through layers of clothing (On cold runs I can wear a hat, put my AfterShokz OVER my hat, and still hear my music!)
  • A great conversation starter (Because they look unlike any other headphones on the market, I’ve had people ask me about them in person and over social media)
  • Easy to wear under hats (If any of you follow me on social media or know me in real life, you know that I have short hair. For this reason, I almost always wear a hat and the AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones fit and stay on under my hats!)

Things I like Thursday

Good evening friends! It has been a busy week of work and classes since I last posted, but it has been fun…Well everyday has been fun, but earlier today. Long lines and public transit were not my friends today. I got home three hours later than I thought I would. Oh well, I will not let those things ruin the rest of my day. I made it back home so that’s all that matters! 😛

Anyway, today I thought I’d write about something different from my usual posts. I wanted to started a new post called “Things I like Thursday” in order to share things that I am enjoying each week and to help my readers learn a little bit more about me. In return, I’d love to hear some of the things you guys have been enjoying this week, just comment below. Maybe this will become a new regular post on this blog!

As a disclaimer, the products below were products I reviewed because I wanted to and personally enjoy them- no one has paid me or influenced my reviews!

1. My new running hat.


I have a child sized head and have a hard time finding hats that fit me so imagine my surprise when I finally found one! When I run, I typically just wear sunglasses, but then when I sweat it still gets in my eyes. Not anymore with this new hat, though! Furthermore, now my scalp is protected from the sun. I don’t know about you, but I’ve gotten scalp sunburn before and it really hurts :(. I really like this hat and I highly recommend this it (Asics Women’s Dawn2Dusk cap in Heather Iron).

2. AM by The Arctic Monkeys.

I saw the Arctic Monkeys live at Lollapalooza earlier this month and since then I have been listening to them a lot. This week, especially, I have been listening to their newest CD called AM and I really like it! My favorite songs on this CD are Snap Out of It, Arabella, and Knee Socks. I am going to give their older CDs a listen too! Any other Artic Monkeys fans out there?

3. Stonyfield organic Greek vanilla yogurt.


Lately, this yogurt has been my favorite snack/dessert. It has real vanilla speaks in it and tastes kind of like ice cream to me, especially if you pop it in the freezer for a few hours! For an extra delicious dessert I sometimes mix in a few dark chocolate chips and/or homemade granola. I normally consume Oikos plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, but this one tastes even better! Unfortunately, it is a little pricey so this will only be an occasional treat for me. :/

4. Morning runs.


I started classes on Monday and since I work a few nights during the week I have been getting my runs and workouts in during the morning. I have really enjoyed running around 7 am while the sun is still rising. The view of the rising sun over Lake Michigan is incredible. :). It’s too bad I did not take any pictures because the view this morning was especially beautiful. I am very lucky to live near the lake and to be able to run on the Lakeshore path whenever I want. I love the feeling of starting my day with a run so I hope to continue waking up early and running before my classes in the coming weeks! Furthermore, now that my IT band injury is fully healed I look forward to getting back into racing shape and finding a race to train for.

5. Morning Oat Crunch cereal.


Another snack I have been enjoying a lot this week is Morning Oat Crunch cereal. It kind of reminds me of Quaker Oat Squares, but is less sweet and a little crunchier. It is the perfect cereal to grab a handful of when you need a quick snack, but it also tastes wonderful topped with almond milk. I could probably eat an entire box of this in one day, but I don’t let myself. Everything one eats in life should be enjoyed in moderation except vegetables- we could all stand to consume more of those! ;).

6. The monkey mug.


The last thing I have really been enjoying this week is my monkey mug. My boyfriend got it for me for Christmas last year and I cannot help, but smile whenever I drink out of it. I love that its arm is the handle of the mug! I needed an evening pick-me-up so I am currently enjoying a cup of chai tea from the monkey mug as I write this post. 🙂 I think my boyfriend bought it at World Market if anyone is interested in looking for it!

What things have you been enjoying this week and why? Also, have a fantastic evening everyone! 🙂
