Now that I've gotten a bunch of runs in while wearing them, I definitely found a few pros and cons. The pros were mainly the whole idea of them not blocking out the noise around you. In Chicago, our main running trail can get quite crowded, and you need to be able to hear bikes and runners around you as they call out "LEFT" and things of that sort. I feel like my previous headphones were built to cancel noise around me, which is good in lots of situations, like on transit, but NOT while running. The Aftershokx easily solved that issue for me. I also found a big pro of these was their battery life (6 hours). Bluetooth devices can sometimes eat up their batteries quickly, but this was not the case. For such a small and lightweight device, I was amazed by how long the battery lasted!
Now, onto the cons. Perhaps it's by design, but I felt the volume levels on this device just weren't good enough. I'm certainly not someone who likes to listen to my music at excessive volumes, but I still was surprised at how low the highest setting actually was. The other major con for me was the Bluetooth connection. I felt that it was not strong enough. I run with my iPhone in Flip Belt, which I keep on the very front of my body. I noticed as I would swing my arms as I ran, the music would cut for the exact second my arm crossed the invisible path of the Bluetooth connection. It did get a little irritating after a while. I decided that if I had an arm band phone case, this would easily solve this issue. I suppose I was just a little frustrated that the sound repeatedly cut out as I ran with them.
