I'd never even tried bone conduction headphones until a couple of months ago. I had just started in my role as TechRadar's fitness editor, and I was itching to give them a try. Lo and behold, they're now my favorite thing ever, and cheaper than ever in the Prime Day deals

The Shokz OpenRun are my headphones of choice (which we called "the world's best bone conduction headphones") and they're now cheaper than ever. Previously, they've only been discounted to around $110, but right now on Amazon they're down a full $40 from RRP to just $89.95. Check them out in full below:

These bone conduction headphones from Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) which leave your ears open to the wider world while blasting out the tunes through bone conduction technology. Essential to keep your ears out for traffic when running. Fast-charging, comfortable and it makes your run safer.

The best bone conduction headphones (which, let me be clear, are the pair above) send the sound through the bones in your skull into your eardrums rather than into your ears directly. 

This allows you to both listen to your favorite tunes, podcasts and audiobooks (see the best audible deals for a good selection, I'm currently polishing off Return Of The King) and keep your ears open on your run. 

With clarity on both fronts, I feel more aware of traffic, pedestrians and occasionally wild animals, so I can run safely while still enjoying a solid audio experience. For me, it's a better experience than most earbuds' active noise canceling transparency modes, as the air between your ears isn't fighting for space. It sounds weird, but I encourage you to give them a try at this price. 

Not convinced? I've dropped a couple more bone conduction headphones deals below, on other Shokz products.
