Runners will find these lightweight, ninth-gen bone-conduction headphones with an open-ear design a great asset to keep them entertained and motivated while exercising. Bone-conducting headphones work by resting on your cheekbones, delivering the sound to your ears through vibrations, which means you’ll be able to stay aware of your surroundings, which is a safer option than traditional headphones or earbuds. The current flagship model from Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) earned a spot on our roundup of the best running headphones and earbuds of 2024 — and right now you can snag a pair at a discount.
You’ll normally have to shell out $180 to grab a pair of these headphones, but Amazon has slashed the price by 22% right now, meaning you can snag a pair for just $140. While we’ve technically seen the OpenRun Pro drop $15 lower during last year’s Black Friday seasonal deals, this is the first time we’ve seen a price drop since and it’s a great chance to snag a pair for yourself without paying top dollar. And they make a great Valentine’s Day gift, too. We don’t know how long this offer will last, so we recommend making your purchase sooner rather than later.
The lightweight, wrap-around design should remain comfortable and secure regardless of how intense your workout gets. And you’ll get up to 10 hours of battery life per charge, with a 5-minute top-off giving you up to 90 minutes of playback when you’re short on time and need a boost. They’re also IP55-rated water-resistant and come equipped with dual noise-canceling microphones and more powerful bass than its predecessor, which makes the OpenRun Pro a solid option for listening to music and podcasts or taking calls on the go. And you’ll also get a hard carrying case with your purchase to keep your headphones safe.
