Opinions vary on this, but personally I was against listening to music at work because I don’t feel it looks as professional. Also, I want to hear my environment, especially a customer trying to get my attention. I found the perfect solution:
They are bone conduction headphones, so there’s nothing on or in your ears. They conduct the sound through your cheek bones. As a result, you can can listen to your music and still hear everything around you. Plus, it doesn’t look like you’re listening to anything and not approachable.
Other great thing is they are bluetooth and have a built in mic, so you can take calls hands-free and continue working. Makes it much easier to look at your phone for the calendar or other stuff while in the conversation.
They are ultra lightweight, the battery life is great and the sound quality is surprisingly good. You don’t have deep bass and the volume is moderate at best, but those are the only downsides. If you have any of the same concerns as me in regards to listening to music while working, I definitely recommend checking these out!
