Have you ever wanted to enjoy your music while being aware of your surroundings? Open-Ear headphones may be the solution you're looking for. Unlike traditional earbuds, which sit in your ear canal and block out external sounds, open-ear headphones use Bone Conduction Technology or DirectPitch™ Technology to transmit sound to your ears without obstructing them. This allows you to stay aware of your surroundings while still enjoying your favorite tunes.
With Open-Ear listening, you get a personalized and immersive audio experience that doesn't isolate you from the world around you. These headphones allow you to hear ambient sounds while enjoying your favorite music or podcast, making them perfect for everyday use.
Of Open-Ear Listening
DirectPitch™ & Bone Conduction Technology
At Shokz, we are passionate about delivering an unparalleled Open-Ear listening experience that keeps you immersed in music while staying connected to the world. To achieve this vision, we developed two groundbreaking technologies: bone conduction technology and DirectPitch™ technology.
DirectPitch™ technology is the newest iteration of LeakSlayer™ technology, which originated in 2013. Both technologies stem from our relentless pursuit of improved Open-Ear listening, aiming to minimize sound leakage and enhance audio quality.
From a technical standpoint, both DirectPitch™ and LeakSlayer™ employ the principle of acoustic phase cancellation. By introducing sound waves with opposite phases to counteract sound leakage, we achieve the remarkable effect of antiphase cancellation, significantly reducing audio leakage and ensuring immersive and uninterrupted listening.
Shokz's pursuit of excellence led to the development of two flagship product lines. While bone conduction technology excels in professional sports with its water resistance, the introduction of DirectPitch™, the air conduction technology used in the Shokz TWS product line, addresses vibration and neckband issues, making it ideal for everyday scenarios. As our research progressed, we found that these two technologies complemented and propelled each other forward, resulting in two exceptional product lines that define the Shokz experience.
