Shokz has launched the OpenRun Pro, which the brand is claiming are its most sophisticated bone-conduction sport headphones yet. The new flagship model features improved tech over the older Shokz OpenRun, which we reviewed recently and scored 4.5/5, including enhanced bass, a 10-hour battery life, easier-to-use controls and a quick charge feature. 

Although the name clearly suggests these headphones are aimed at running, we found this type is perfect for indoor cycling - which increasingly involves communicating with others via Discord - and the bone conduction technology means situational awareness isn't compromised if you do want to listen to music while riding outdoors.
