It may not look like it from the outside, but we at AfterShokz are a really small team. Really small. Our Head Office consists of 10 employees. However, we’re a close-knit group with BIG dreams for the brand, and together, we get stuff done. We travel across the country shouting about our headphones from the rooftops, but with so few voices, our unique product message often gets drowned out by all the other headphones out there.
As you’re aware, our headphones aren’t average by a long stretch. They’re designed to keep you tuned in without tuning out the world - designed to keep you safe - which we believe everyone should care about deeply, for themselves, and for their loved ones. Having your ears open as you cycle, walk, or run down the street is a no-brainer. Having your ears open while you catch up on the latest ep of Serial and enjoy time with your family is just darn cool. Having your ears open as a blind person listening to GPS prompts down the street is critical. And having AfterShokz headphones to allow you to hear in stereo sound for the first time when you’re deaf is life changing.
Spreading the word on AfterShokz headphones to the whole wide world is certainly a challenge, and one that can often leave us wondering if people love these headphones just as much as we do. But, then our fans write in. They tell us how appreciative they are that our headphones are keeping their loved ones safe as they train for their marathons. How they can hear traffic while they commute to the office on their bike. How they’re giving the blind community more confidence and independence navigating busy city streets. How their deaf children just heard music for the first time in their lives. And THIS makes it all worthwhile. This keeps us excited to walk into work each day, keeps us driven, and makes work not feel like work. When our efforts are changing lives, nothing else matters.
We wanted to share a few favorite quotes fans have recently sent in, and to say thank-you for shouting about AfterShokz from the rooftops alongside us.
Your messages mean more than we could ever tell you! Keep ‘em coming.
