If you're interested, you're in luck because the Shokz OpenRun Pro, originally priced at $180, are on sale from Best Buy for a more affordable $140.

Why you should buy the Shokz OpenRun Pro bone conduction headphones
Unlike traditional headphones that cover your ears and blast sound waves through your eardrums, bone conduction headphones like the Shokz OpenRun Pro use transducers that sit next to your ears to send vibrations through your cheekbones and deliver sound directly to your inner ear, according to our guide on how do bone conduction headphones work. The benefits of this technology include leaving your ears open so you can still hear what's going on around you such as when you're commuting or working in the office, and improved stability as the Shokz OpenRun Pro features a wraparound titanium frame that stays in place compared to the bands of traditional headphones.
