AfterShokz Aeropex Bluetooth headphones are extremely versatile and are the perfect choice for most runners! Aeropex has the latest and greatest PremiumPitch 2.0+, which allows for higher volume and less vibration.

“The AfterShokz Aeropex's sound quality is amazing,
weighs only 26 grams,
is IP67 water-rated and has a battery life up to eight hours.

Aeropex is available in Cosmic Black or Lunar Grey, Blue Eclipse and Solar red, depending on your mood.
Short answer: No. More. Boring. Laps.
Xtrainerz has the top waterproof standard up to IP68, this means the headphones will provide two hours listening along with withstanding heavy sweat and complete submersion in up to two meters of depth of salt or freshwater. Plus, the open-ear design rest outside your ears and allow you to use swim caps, goggles and earplugs to protect yourself without compromising your fave music.
See what the media say about Xtrainerz:
“Best waterproof headphones on the market”
“These buds are designed for use with all sorts of sports,
including swimming, without having to be plugged inside the ear directly.
Instead, the sound is bone-conducted from beside your ear,
preventing the risk of swimmer's ear and other potential plugged-ear problems.
They can hold around 8,000 songs,
and boast eight hours of continuous playtime for each charge;
the waterproofing level is IP68.
Swimmers and triathlons alike regularly sing their praises, as well,
saying they are so comfortable to wear it is sometimes easy to forget you're wearing them. They're not cheap but are the most complete,
high-tech waterproof headphones on the market. “

One of the main differences between Xtrainerz and Aeropex is that Xtrainerz is rated IP68 instead of IP67. That means lots of laps in the pool or kilometers in the lake while jamming out or listening to podcasts.
On the other hand, the IP67 rating means Aeropex can be submerged in water up to a meter deep safely for 30 minutes. It also means Aeropex is totally sweat, rain, and shower-proof.
Wait, you don’t listen to podcasts in the shower? Uh, you SHOULD.
The other main difference is that Xtrainerz stores your audio content as MP3 files, rather than using a Bluetooth connection to play audio from your device. For those who want a versatile headphone that doesn’t require them to carry their phone, Xtrainerz is the answer.
Another advantage of MP3 storage over Bluetooth is that Bluetooth technology actually cannot pass a signal through water, so playing audio content from an MP3 source is the way to go while swimming.
Finally, Aeropex charge via the provided magnetic charging cable. You can use your own charging base, but we do not recommend "fast chargers" such as Android or tablet chargers, as those can exceed the 1 amp or 5 volts maximum.
