Paragraph Review: I love these headphones.  I’ve used them for two runs so far. At first, I wasn’t sure how to get them just right, but I figured it out quickly and they set just right. You don’t even know they were there. I’ve already recommended them to at least two people! Love them!

Chapter Name:  Cook MN MRTT
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Air
Would you recommend them to a friend: Yes
Short list of Pros: Lightweight, good sound quality, not inside your ears, amazing battery life
Short list of Cons: Band is too big
Paragraph Review: These are super light, so once settled, they will stay where they belong, even if they’re too big for your head. This type of headset is fantastic when you’re in traffic -your ears are clear so you have the ability to hear cars, people, dogs, etc. Overall a great product and my new go-to!

Your Name:  Lisa Sammons
Chapter Name:  Centreville/Clifton VA MRTT
Headphone Style Purchased: Originally Trekz Titanium Mini but exchanged for Trekz Air
Would you recommend them to a friend:  YES!!!!
Short list of Pros:  fit better behind my ears, sound is amazing, don’t bounce, lightweight
Short list of Cons:  can’t use during a strength workout that involves floor work
Paragraph Review:  I originally bought the Trekz Titanium Mini and on day 2 of wearing them my ears hurt, contacted customer support and they were great about exchanging them for the Trekz Air.  I love everything about the Trekz Air and mainly wear them at the office! I don’t have to take anything out of my ear to talk with people who come up to my desk anymore! Taking phone calls on them is so easy.  I love that when you hang up you don’t have to push any other buttons to get back to the music…..it automatically does that for you!

Your Name: Carrie Cox
Chapter Name: San Diego MRTT
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Air
Would you recommend them to a friend: Yes
Short list of Pros: lightweight, do not bounce, can hear the world around me for safety
Short list of Cons: controls are tiny and hard to manage on a run
Paragraph Review: I LOVE them! I wear a hat and sunglasses every run, and these are so lightweight, I forget they’re there! They sound great too! I love that I can hear my music/coaching app/podcast AND what’s going on around me, it makes me feel safer. Love love love them!!

Your Name:  Kristen Lasich
Chapter Name:  Centreville/Clifton VA MRTT
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Air
Would you recommend them to a friend:  Definitely!!
Short list of Pros:  Amazing sound quality.  Lightweight – totally forget that I have them on.
Short list of Cons:  Buttons are too small – really hard to find/use on a run (and even when not running)
Paragraph Review:  I have never found a pair of headphones that I liked – until these!  I cannot say enough good things about these. They are super lightweight.  I can wear them with ear warmers and/or a visor – no problem! I love that I can still hear my surroundings.  I have not had any problems with pairing them to my phone or losing sound during a run. I only wish was that the buttons were bigger.  I have a hard time seeing/finding them and aren’t able to easily make adjustments to volume/songs during a run.

Your Name: Liz Dowling
Chapter Name: DFW – Grand Prarire
Headphone Style Purchased: AfterShokz Trekz Air
Would you recommend them to a friend: Absolutely – already have!
Short list of Pros: Lightweight, long battery life, does not drain my battery due to bluetooth connection, excellent sound quality, easy pairing, no bouncing or slipping, fit over ears while not in them, can hear my surroundings.
Short list of Cons: No skip button, buttons are a bit far back
Paragraph Review: Pairing was extremely simple and quick. Took them on a brutally hard trail run – they did not slip or bounce, and feel weightless. My temples are extremely sensitive and were not bothered. I was able to wear my sunglasses with no interference. My phone was at 100% battery when I turned the headphones on. After one hour, my battery was at 94%. The buttons are a bit far back (and a tad small, but the positioning was more of a factor), which resulted in me having to slow down to concentrate on locating them. I loved being able to hear what was going on around me and hold a conversation while having them on. I searched but was unable to find if there is or will be an app to connect the headphones to my smartwatch – this would be fantastic with the lack of skip button on the headphones, as I plan on using them frequently while running, hiking, and biking.  **EDIT** apparently it is just my watch. Boo. I have been told that Garmins and iWatches do allow you to skip.

Your Name:  Diane Bryan
Chapter Name:  MRTT Livonia
Headphone Style Purchased: Titanium mini
Would you recommend them to a friend: yes!
Short list of Pros:  lightweight, easy to pair, stays put, great battery life
Short list of Cons:  only learning curve is sorting out the tiny buttons
Paragraph Review:
I haven’t run with music in ages – headphones felt soggy and, safety being a priority, were soon abandoned.  My Titanium Minis have changed all that! They are very lightweight, wrap around the back of your head, over your ears and two little square pads sitting on your cheekbones do their magic!  Your ears are still completely open to hear everything around you! It’s like listening to music in a car, but only you can hear it. You can hear leaves rustling through the trees, your footsteps everything! Love them love them love them.

Your Name:  Michelle Corey
Chapter Name:  Palm Bay, FL
Headphones Style Purchased:  Trekz Titanium Mini
Would you recommend them to a friend:  Already did
Short List of Pros:  Good sound, light weight, I like that they don’t go in the ear   
Short List of Cons:  The piece around the back that connect to two earpieces is too long for my head even in the minis.  The extra length sits low and hits into my shoulders if I move my head.
Paragraph Review:  I’ve really only gotten to wear them twice since I bought them because I haven’t been running.  So far I like them even with the back piece hitting my shoulders every so often. They sound good and I carried on a full conversation with my running buddy never missing a word.

Your Name: Rachel Mooney
Chapter Name: Kitsap County, WA
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Titanium Mini
Would you recommend them to a friend: YES!
Short list of Pros: The sound is amazing, the fit is so comfortable and they do not go into my ears
Short list of Cons: The volume buttons are in an awkward place and it took some time to get used to that. The music cuts in and out occasionally when my phone is in my leg pocket (but not when carried closer to my head)
Paragraph Review: Overall I LOVE these headphones and I have recommended them to everyone who will listen. I have spend hundreds of dollars trying to find bluetooth headphones that work for me! I have yet to find a pair of earbuds that will stay in my ears, and every pair of over the ear headphones I’ve purchased were extremely uncomfortable. I thought I was to live a life of musicless runs until these Trekz came into my world!

Your Name:  Kelly David
Chapter Name: Allen/McKinney/Plano/Frisco MRTT
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Titanium
Would you recommend them to a friend: Yes
Short list of Pros:  No fuss headphones to put on, Easy to Sync and Loved Hearing my surroundings
Short list of Cons: None
Paragraph Review:  I have a pair of wireless earbuds, and they just became to much hassle. I had a hard time getting them in perfect, and then if I needed to readjust or take them out during the run, it just became to much of a bother. The Trekz Titanium were perfect – easy to put on, easy to stop the music to talk or when running in somewhere quickly and I felt like I wasn’t even wearing anything.  Really enjoyed them and have already recommended to several.

Your Name: Kelli Jo Lowe
Chapter Name: Anderson MRTT (SC)
Headphone Style Purchased: Trekz Titanium
Would you recommend them to a friend:YES!!
Short list of Pros: lightweight, great battery, no “parts” to lose, quick charge, super sound
Short list of Cons: wish it had adjustable band and a different color
Paragraph Review: Wore this in a few races and knew I loved them. The true test was last weekend’s half marathon in the pouring rain! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am that I could rely on these to stay tough through some bad weather and be so easy to handle with wet hands! They’re almost weightless, and I didn’t have the typical sore inner ear from from prior $$$ earbuds. I am so thankful for these Trekz!
