Disclaimer: I received a pair of AfterShokz Xtrainerz to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!
These headphones!! As if I weren’t already obsessed with AfterShokz enough, they went a made WATERPROOF headphones and saved me from the endless black line at the bottom of the pool! The specs on these headphones are amazing…
4G of storage ~1200 songs
8hr battery life
IP68 rated (aka fully waterproof)
As with all the AfterShokz products, they were really simple to set up, just snap them into the charger and plug it into your computer, then drag and drop your audio files. For my swim days I loaded music onto them, for my bike and run days I loaded podcasts (that constant studying PA school life). They come with a little booklet that breaks down all the buttons, which is super helpful because they are a bit different from the AfterShokz Airz.
Once I had them set up I was ready to go…
And they crushed it in all 3 disciplines – and totally made me want to sign up for another triathlon – maybe in 2020!! Having them during the swim is a huge game changer for me. I used to dread swimming, I found it so boring, and it would feel like it was lasting forever. With these Xtrainerz the time just flies by, and before I know it I’ve rocked a pretty solid swim!! You can wear them under OR over your swim cap, it’s all about personal preference. They’re super comfy and they stay put. But most of all, the sound quality is AMAZING! The hardest part about swimming with them is trying not to smile when your favorite song comes on, lol.
