Shokz, the company formerly known as AfterShokz, specialized in open-ear headphones and bone conduction technology, has announced a rebrand of the company to mark their 10-year anniversary.

While our name is shorter and easier to share, our mission and core values remain the same.

From now on, Aeropex, the company’s top-selling headphones, will be called OpenRun and Xtrainerz swimming headphones will be branded OpenSwim as the company means to unify its products’ identity.

“The“ o ”shows the representation of a sound wave and symbolizes Shokz’s focus on bone conduction technology and acoustics,” says the brand. “The point that was previously in the middle of the” o “has been removed to better illustrate the open-ear technology.”
