It’s been 70 years since Adidas became a household name in the sportswear industry, and it continues to remain a force to be reckoned with. Let’s face it, we’ve all owned something from Adidas at some point in our lives. And having made its mark in sports, the brand has now turned its attention to the sound arena.
Our prayers for a great set of workout headphones have finally been answered. To make that a double whammy, Adidas has partnered with Swedish tech company, Zound Industries to come out with not one, but two different earphones that have been designed keeping the regular runner in mind.
Partnering up last year, Adidas and Zound worked on the design and development of the headphones to usher in the sportswear giant’s first venture into audio. Adidas roped in its loyal community of sports enthusiasts to test out the gear before announcing the launch. So, you know that these earphones/headphones come with the approval of the fitness frat.
On display, there’s a pair of on-ear headphones, RPT-01 and a pair of wireless in-ear earphones, FWD-01. Keeping everyone in mind, the RPT-01 has been designed for a seamless transition between workouts and your day-to-day activities. Be it a rigorous session of CrossFit or just to run your errands, the RPT-01 has you covered. Equipped with 40 hours of playtime and an ergonomic design that allows it to swivel 360 degrees, this is one high-functioning and comfortable gadget to tune into. And of course, being workout friendly, it’s sweat-resistant. And guess what, it’s knit exterior and ear cushions are washable.
Coming to the FWD-01, the in-ear earphones have been designed for meticulous workouts. No more tangling and untangling those long wired earphones, the FWD-10 comes with a knit cord that doesn’t knot up. It also has magnetic earbuds so you don’t have to worry about taking them off every time they are not in use. And you don’t have to keep charging it, the battery life lasts a good 16 hours.
Launching on 25th September, we wouldn’t be surprised if these get snapped up really quick.
