Athlete with Shokz headphones

Shokz (formerly known as AfterShokz), promoter of safe running, is the England Athletics headphone partner.

Shokz (formerly known as AfterShokz) was founded in 2011, in Syracuse New York. Since then, Shokz has been a pioneer of bone conduction technology, with over 1000+ patents worldwide.

Shokz - the only sports headphones brand recognised by England Athletics

Race approved: Bone conduction sports headphones are the only headphones that are approved for use in all road races under the UK Athletics Rules of Competition. The Rules are clear that “in ear” headphones cannot be used in events where roads are open to traffic. Using bone conduction technology and open-ear design, Shokz headphones is able to deliver stereophonic sound through your cheekbones to your inner ear. Potentially preventing accidents caused by traditional headphones and earbuds that block out sounds, runners can enjoy their music and still hear everything around them – including traffic, emergency vehicles and other warning noises.
