Product: Revvez

Brand: OptiShokz

April 01, 2019

Bottom Line

With its Revvez Sunglasses, OptiShokz has made an exciting advancement in wearable tech. The bone conducted, open-ear audio sounds great, is a fun experience, and it’s safer than traditional headphones.

Field Notes

OptiShokz is the child of AfterShokz, a company that makes bone conduction headphones. The Revvez are OptiShokz’s debut product – a pair of sunglasses that delivers stereo sound through your ear cartilage to your brain.
With Revvez, you can listen to audio from a smartphone or any bluetooth device and keep your ears free to hear your surroundings.

Recently, Aftershokz sent me a pair of Revvez to test out and provide feedback on.
