Transparency mode killed open-ear headphones for me

The Shokz OpenFit earbuds sitting on top of the charging case

So, you work in a warehouse. Or maybe you love going for a run in an urban environment. In both cases, you want some music to help pass the time or motivate you to get that run done, but hearing what’s going on around you is absolutely mission-critical.

Do you use open-ear earbuds that have tips or sound-emanating technologies that don’t sit inside of or plug up your ear canal? Or do you go with a pair of truly wireless earbuds that have that “transparency mode” feature, which uses the microphones embedded in the buds to allow you to hear your music at the same time that they also allow the sounds of the outside world in?
