Forget Shokz, these are the bone conducting headphones I’d buy for just $74.14 / £56.10

It's an absolute gamechanger being able to ride with music - whilst still keeping my ears fully open to ambient sound and traffic

While headphones and cycling will always be met with mixed opinions, I honestly feel that bone conducting headphones are the olive branch reaching out to both camps. The ability to listen to whatever audio you like - whilst keeping your ears open to ambient noise - is a win all round. Best of all, a pair of my favourite bone conducting headphones is now on a Black Friday sale.
