My Personal Experience with Shokz Openrun Mini

To do most of my work from home, I wear a headset over one ear for a minimum of ten hours a day, four days a week. I wanted to listen to music while I worked so I searched for something that would enable me to do this efficiently.

For the past two years, I have suffered from severe ear discomfort because I have been wearing earbuds that were too large or fell out of my ears. Also, because I wear a headset, I am unable to wear over-ear headphones.

After searching for a while, I found the Shokz openrun mini. Even though I wear my glasses and headset, I don’t feel any discomfort from them. Although I felt some soreness on the side of my headset after wearing them for eight hours straight yesterday, I repositioned them and the pain soon disappeared.

Since I have smaller ears compared to my brother, I purchased the Mini version of the earphones, but he was able to wear them with no difficulties.

Additionally, since you are not placing the earplugs in your ears, you will not have to worry about constant earwax buildup.

If you do not want your hair up, my experience has been that the best way to wear these is to lift your hair and place the band underneath your hair. In this way, you will be able to keep your hair from becoming tangled.

The overall impression I have of these is that they are excellent and that I would strongly recommend them to any individual.
