AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Shokz, known for its open-ear headphones with patented bone conduction technology, announced its partnership with Olympic Gold Medalist and three-time winner of the IRONMAN World Championship, Jan Frodeno, today. The iconic German triathlete embraces the Shokz open-ear style as his own during any outdoor or indoor activity, whether cycling, swimming, hiking and more.

“Be Open could be my life mantra, and music holds a significant place when it comes to enhancing my training sessions. Shokz offers the best audio quality while you keep your ears, eyes and mind open to what’s out there,” said Frodeno. “Honestly, I don’t leave the house without my Shokz headphones – they’re so comfortable you forget you’re wearing them and perfect for any type of activity.”

Frodeno is an Olympic gold medalist, three-time IRONMAN World Champion and world record holder for his long-distance triathlon.
