Noise-canceling headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM4 or the Bose 700 are great if you want to completely block out the world around you. But what if you need amazing audio while being aware of your surroundings?

QVC has granted your wish with the AfterShokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones, a premium pair that lets you enjoy your favorite tunes and podcasts without complete noise-canceling. Right now, you can grab them for just $140, or $130 off (if purchased separately) at QVC. That’s nearly 50 percent off!

And since they’re from QVC, the headphones come with a bunch of goodies. You'll get a rubber carrying case and two magnetic charging cables. You'll also score three months of Pandora Premium for ad-free music streaming (a $30 value), three months of Yoga International for at-home classes (a $60 value) and a one-year subscription for Hello-Hello, a language-learning app (a $60 value). You can learn up to 13 languages in a year—nearly one new language a month!

If you’d rather not pay in one chunk (understandable), QVC lets you opt for five 'Easy Pays' of just $28, with no interest at all. New to QVC? You can get an additional $10 off with promo code 'OFFER' at checkout.

Here’s how they work

These AfterShokz Aeropex Wireless Headphones comfortably wrap around and behind your ears. And they're incredibly cool—they use bone-conduction technology to deliver rich audio to your cheekbones instead of your ears!

With your ears freed up, you're good to go. This is ideal for runners, so you’re not so caught up in your music that you can’t pay attention to oncoming traffic. Plus, this set is waterproof and sweat-proof, so feel free to push yourself to the limit without worrying about damage. Watch this video for more info.

"I’m a long time, long-distance runner. I had given up on finding earbuds that met my needs for clear sound, comfort, staying in place, and still allowing me to deal with cars and such," wrote a five-star AfterShokz reviewer. "And then my son...gave me a pair of AfterShokz. Game changer! As a runner, it’s hard to live without them."

Conversations will be a breeze

The AfterShokz Aeropex Wireless Bone-Conduction Headphones—which have an eight-hour battery life per charge—feature dual noise-canceling microphones for crystal-clear phone calls when paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth.

And just because you want to hear the world around you when wearing these doesn’t mean those on the other end of your phone calls agree. No worries: These noise-canceling microphones can block out any background and ambient noise for the best possible phone call quality.

"I am able to easily hear others approaching and move to the side when needed," added another delighted AfterShokz shopper. "I have easily carried on conversations without adjusting the volume. The Aeropex are the most comfortable yet."
