Shokz OpenRun wireless bluetooth headphones

Editor Phillipa Cherryson really rates her Shokz headphones, calling them a ‘revelation’.

“I bought mine to use when I was out trail running, but I’ve found I use them all the time – when I cycle, when I travel by train, on the tube and even in my car, which doesn’t have a bluetooth feature on the stereo,” she says.

“They are so comfortable I forget I am wearing them. I really don’t like in-ear headphones at all, so these really suit me. And I can hear what is going on around me, which means I feel so much safer.”
