Anyone have them? What do you think?

Main purpose for me would be to enhance my hearing in the woods, especially turkey season and when the wife is in the kitchen talking to me while I am in living room :chuckle:

So thoughts on these units.

I have a pair, I donít feel like you get what you pay for. I would not recommend them. They donít block out noise well or enhance your hearing. The Bluetooth is about the only thing that works as advertised.

Iíve had two sets, I lost the first. Mine have worked great. Mine were on sale this last round for $100 from Midway. I use them duck hunting, at the range and deer hunting when sitting. Would be pretty easy to snag them on branches. Mine function great, they cut out with a clap of your hands. I have talked to hunting buddies 100 yards away and could hear them just fine.(We both had a set in) Another benefit is they are out of the way at the range behind a scope, my muffs drove me nuts even the low profile one.

I haven't tried that brand but I did try the walkers silencer bt ear buds.   Worked great at first but they quit updating their app and now it doesn't work at all.  The app is what made them worth it. Now they don't get used much and I was looking for other options too.

Cannot seem to find many reviews on Bone conductors. Other than factory. But they seem better for what I am looking for. Really more interested in sound enhancement than shot protection.

I kind of like the axil, but my son and BIL love them, my problem is for me my ear canal is small and these don't stay in place. They even provide 4 different ear pieces. So I'm disappointed I bought 2 pairs for Christmas stockings, 1 for me and 1 for my son. My son now has both of them and im sure he will lose 1 pair during the season.

I found out the other day that bone conduction headphones can cause vertigo

I had it horrible but had no idea what was doing it

Iíd wake up like I drunk 1/2 gallon of whiskey, room spinning, put my foot down like a kickstand to stop the room from spinning, eyes spinning doing fruitloops in my head, couldnít walk in a straight line

Hadnít touched a drop of booze in weeks!  It had me worried something was really wrong!

The bone conduction headphones can vibrate the fluids in your inner ear and create utter havoc on your inner gyroscope

Well my primary reason is to enhance my hearing a little, so I have been looking for something that has that specific feature, the suppression and Bluetooth are lesser interests for me. Want to hear those turkeys.

And the wife :tup:

Well received the Caldwell shadow max pro earbuds today.
Been wearing them about three hours and they have enhanced my hearing substantially.
Have not shot with them yet.

They are very comfortable for me to wear.
I did Bluetooth to my IPad and play music, and that was very nice.

There was about a 5 mph wind today. Only noticed it when I faced the wind. But not bad.
I worked outside with them several hours without the tether with no issues.

I am looking forward to take them turkey hunting first week in May.

So far so good.

If you are on the fence. These go for $149.00-$169.00 but Amazon is selling like new used for $100.00 right now. Thatís what I bought.

Here is what they look like.

Getting about five hours of use per charge.

A charge in case takes about 1 hour with buds dead.

So far I am liking them. Wore them cleaning the yard today, no issues. :tup:

I was seriously considering the tetra hearing enhancement/protection. Theyre very expensive but are HSA eligible. Most of the medical grade devices use disposable hearing aid batteries that only last 4 days even if you don't use them. I'm sure I'll go down that road eventually, but for now good old Howard leight around the neck earplugs are the way to go.
