Shokz Launches Ultra-Lightweight and Stylish OpenFit Air Headphones

Shokz, the industry-leading open-ear headphone pioneer, today releases the ultra-lightweight and secure fit OpenFit Air, the newest generation true wireless open-ear headphone after OpenFit, which was released in 2023. OpenFit Air features Shokz’ signature open-ear design including an ergonomic ear hook for ultimate comfort, to offer an enhanced listening experience.

Weighing a lightweight 8.7g, the headphones are engineered with a soft silicone finish that provides a pliable fit for every ear shape and all-day use. Featuring an ultra-fine 0.75mm flexible Ni-Ti memory alloy, the Air-Earhook design keeps headphones securely in place, minimising pressure during long listening sessions. Its cavity design and teardrop-shaped cross-section design allows the headphones to fit deeper in the ear for a comfortable and snug fit.

Powered by DirectPitch™ technology, OpenFit Air offers a full and natural audio experience that immerses users in their favorite songs, podcasts, and audiobooks. With Shokz OpenBass™ Air and proprietary low-frequency enhancement algorithm, OpenFit Air can bring deep bass and detailed richness without unnecessary fuss.

Boasting six hours on a single charge and a total of 28 hours with its charging case, the OpenFit Air headphones keep your playlists going. For those short on time, a quick 10-minute charge will serve up an extra two hours of listening time.

Leon Du, Europe Market Director from Shokz says:

“Last year, OpenFit won global consumer favor with its excellent comfort and achieved great sales. This year, we also want to invite more people to enjoy open-ear technology. With OpenFit Air, you will be able to stay connected to family, friends, and colleagues, or remain situationally aware and motivated while on a workout. OpenFit Air will be available in a smart matte silicone finish in three colours including pink, white and black to effortlessly match any style.”
