It's the last day of the Amazon Prime Day sale and these Shokz headphones are brilliant for listening to music while riding. We are big fans of safely listening to music on the go, but earbuds have always been problematic, as most earphone designs either close out the surroundings which can be dangerous on the road, or they are at risk of leaping out when sending it on the trails.

Shokz aims to solve all these issues with its bone-conduction headphones. The latest models – the Shokz OpenFit are also discounted and these use a slightly different open-ear technology that we found gave a superb sound quality over their Shokz siblings.

Saying that Bike Perfect tester, Graham Cottingham, still preferred the overall performance of the Shokz Bone Conduction technology. Having first used the OpenRun model, he was so impressed he upgraded to the OpenRun Pro, and he liked those so much they featured in his Gear of the Year lineup.
