Whether you take advantage of Black Friday AirPod deals or deals on any other headphones or earbuds, you'll be jamming plastic into your ears for hours at a time. For some people, that causes frustrating ear irritation; plus, even passive noise canceling blocks out too much of the world if you're an athlete.

Instead of saving money on earbuds that aren't safe to use during a run or bike ride, try using these AfterShokz Aeropex bone conduction headphones instead. They're currently $30 off for Cyber Monday, and they rest over your ears, so your hearing is completely unobstructed while out and about.

With eight hours of battery per charge, IP67 waterproofing, Google Assistant support, and excellent audio quality that vibrates through your skull without blocking your ears, these AfterShokz Aeropex headphones will blow you away.

In case you've never heard of bone conduction headphones, they vibrate against your ear, so sound travels through your skull instead of directly through your ear canal. The wireless Aeropex models rest around the back of your head and on top of your ears, giving you fantastic audio quality without blocking your hearing.

While we love the AfterShokz Aeropex headphones for their sound quality, waterproof build, and long battery life, it may be a bit too pricey for you. In that case, the AfterShokz Air headphones are a slight downgrade in specs but still give you the same comfortable bone-conducting sound that athletes love.
