Amazon's second Prime Day of the year, Prime Big Deal Days, is here, and that means top-rated bone conduction headphones on deep discount. The latest trend in fitness, bone conduction headphones let you hear your favorite music through your cheekbones, leaving your ears open to hear what's going on around you.

In addition to being a safer option for outdoor runners and cyclists who need to be alert to traffic, they're also a great option for swimmers; traditional air conduction headphones don't work too well underwater. If you're curious to try out the open ear technology, now is a great time to order a pair. Some of the best bone conduction headphones you can find are discounted by more than 60% during Amazon's October Prime Day.

The Prime-exclusive deals end at midnight tonight.

Get these Panadia bone conduction headphones for just $30


These Panadia bone conduction headphones pack in plenty of the premium features you want in a pair of bonephones at a price that's hard to beat. The 4.2-star rated headphones are just $30 (reduced from $55).

The budget-friendly bone conduction headphones offer a flexible-yet-secure silicone fit, Bluetooth connectivity and an IPX7 waterproof rating. That's enough to be sweat and rainproof, but these headphones are not appropriate for longer stretches of underwater swimming.

Why we like the Panadia Bone Conduction Headphones:

  • The built-in mic automatically blocks out ambient noise for crystal-clear calls.
  • Use multipoint Bluetooth pairing to switch seamlessly between Zoom meetings on your computer and your favorite playlist on your phone.
  • The battery lasts up to six hours on a single charge.
  • Its lightweight yet secure fit stays in place even while running.

Get over 30% off Shokz OpenRun Pro


Called "magic" by multiple reviewers, the Shokz OpenRun Pros are some of the most popular bone conduction headphones on the market. "You can hear ambient sounds and things like the skateboard coming up behind you, but can also hear your audio as if it was a high-quality speaker that's following you around," said one Amazon reviewer.

They're great for running in hot weather, too, because they keep your ears open and they stay in place even while you're jogging. These best-selling headphones have earned more than 9,300 5-star ratings on Amazon.

Experience the magic for yourself while they're on sale for just $125 (reduced from $180).

What we like about the Shokz OpenRun Pro:

  • The comfortable, secure fit stays in place even on the move.
  • IP55 water resistance means you can get sweaty or run in the rain without a problem.
  • Two bass enhancers give you better bass quality compared to most bone conduction headphones.
  • The battery lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Save over $50 on the Mojawa Run Plus


The Mojawa Run Plus offers some of the richest, most powerful bass of any bone conduction headphone. Mojawa's BC05 Maglev-Bass technology that strengthens bass frequencies while a dual suspension anchor system offers an expansive soundstage across all frequencies.

These are also some of the only headphones with noise-cancelling technology. They're also swimproof and come with 32 GB of built-in storage, so you can load it up with thousands of your favorite songs. That's key; Bluetooth doesn't work underwater.

These high end bone conduction headphones are on sale for just $109 (reduced from $160).

Why we like the Mojawa Run Plus:

  • Patented bass-strengthening technology and a dual suspension anchor system deliver a wide soundstage with rich, clear audio quality across high, mid and low frequencies.

Save over $40 on the Oladance OWS1


If you want the comfort and safety of open-ear headphones but you're not sure you're ready to hear sound with your skull, check out the Oladance OWS1 earbuds. These work like regular earbuds -- that is, by vibrating air instead of your skull. But they don't go inside your ear canal. Instead, it's a bit like having a high-quality 16.5 mm speaker mounted right outside your ear. Actually, it's exactly like that.

These 4.4-star rated open ear earbuds are on sale for $104 at Amazon now (reduced from $150).

Why we like the Oladance OWS1:

  • Super-sized 16.5mm drivers in each earbud offer some of the best audio quality earbuds have to offer.
  • The battery lasts up to 16 hours on a single charge.
  • The wrap-around design ensures that these mount securely around your ears without covering them.
