Of course, the biggest advantage is that the headphones don't actually go in your ear so you are able to hear cars around you. As a runner who runs in the dark mid week, I have primarily two things I worry about while wearing headphones then. The first is that I worry I won't hear a car coming up on me even though I run against traffic. You really need to be on the defensive when running in the dark mornings and this helps you do that. A disadvantage to these, however, is that you don't hear the music as well on a busy street. It takes a little getting used to not hearing it like it is when you have them actually in your ear but safety is a priority for me so I will sacrifice a little sound quality. I did tend to turn them up a little louder but could still hear the cars coming.
The second issue I worry about is that someone would come up to me from behind that I didn't hear. These headphones also really help with that too since they're not in your ear. Not that I see that many people at 5am when out running but I like to be more alert to my surroundings.

Interested in learning more about them?
Go to the Panasonic website to check them out.
They retail for $79.99. They also feature them in wireless for $199.99. I want to thank Panasonic for the opportunity to test these out. If you are looking for Safety but still want your music, this is the way to go.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
