I purchased the trekz titanium mini this spring also pushed over the edge because I received a discount code. I considered the air, but wanted the smaller size. I used them for running this summer and prefer them over my ear buds or anything over or in the ear. The band rests on the nape of my neck so they are more stable than other options.So who here has aftershoz headphones? Do you like them? Any cons I should know about? I just got the email this week say thing they would have them on sale for Black Friday. I currently have jaybirds and despise them. I got them as a Christmas gift last year and was excited to finally not have to deal with the wires. But they never stay in my ears. I have tried all different size buds and they always fall out. Its so annoying to constantly be fixing them. I'm over it and thinking now is the time to change.
They stay on my head, but it took a bit of practice do to with a ponytail or braid vs. a bun, and also when wearing sunglasses and a hat (headphones on first, then sunglasses and then hat that I do not always wear). I have recently decided I do not like them with winter gear as apparently my ear band or my hat, or hat + buff cause them to shift around.
There is a range of positions on my cheek bone that they are fine, but in some spots it is easier to hear than others, so some shifting is fine but too much is not.
They remain charged for the length of my runs (rarely more than 2 hours) for several days in a row. I am terrible at remembering to plug anything in, so I am confident that I get >5 hours of playtime out of them but I cannot comment on more. They quickly and easily pair with my iPhone SE, and and while the sound quality is sufficient, it is not fantastic. I have had calls come through the headphones (I am running at work, so I will take calls) and it works as well as any headset- wind noise and I have to speak up as the mic is not as close as it would be on a proper phone.
