No sports earphone is perfect, but Shokz shines once again with the care taken in its creations. The OpenFit are quite light for models true wireless earhook type, which contributes greatly to their excellent comfort. The brand has thought of everything: the shape is optimized, the surface is partly covered with a very flexible silicone and the whole thing is almost perfectly balanced.
On the other hand, JBL delivers a device that is much more classic in its design and inevitably less accomplished. The headphones are very robust, but significantly bulkier and heavier (13.1 g each, compared to 8.3 g), entirely made of hard plastic. So, if the fit is excellent and the feeling of comfort is satisfactory, we are a big notch behind the Shokz. The Soundgear Sense, however, does not lack ideas, as evidenced by the neck attachment that can be attached to the headphones.
Although the OpenFit are superior to their competitors in terms of form, they unfortunately display the same timidity in terms of resistance to the elements: IP54 (dust and water splashes). This designates an index barely higher than what we find on classic headphones, that is to say far removed from the performance of bone conduction headphones.
Very imposing, the two charging boxes cannot be placed in a standard pocket. Shokz is, however, less exuberant than JBL, which for the occasion brings us one of the longest cases of recent years.
