Philips and O'Neill Launches Range of Ear Gear for Active Lifestyles
SINGAPORE - Philips and O'Neill have created a new range of comfortable, durable yet stylish headphones designed to withstand the rigours of the toughest and most active of lifestyles – be it in the mountains, the desert, while climbing rocks or skiing down slopes.
These cleverly-engineered Philips | O’Neill Headphones were tested and approved by O’Neill’s toughest team riders who are known to be the most uncompromising and daring boarders around, who took the headphones out for the ride of their lives. With a partnership rooted in durability and innovation, this high performance range of headphones marries the synergies of Philips’ simplicity and innovation and O’Neill’s set of core values based around the concept of style and technology.
This new lineup of headphones from Philips and O’Neill features four unique styles that offer something for the most active and toughest lifestyles – The Stretch, The Snug, The Covert and The Specked. Each stands out in their own right, with impressive functionality and unique style.
The Stretch, the toughest of the lot, is made with an incredibly sturdy material that has a surface hardness that is six times that of Poly Carbonate. Designed with the die-hard sports enthusiast in mind, these super-soft noise isolating headphones feature a cool wetsuit-inspired super-stretch headband to withstand the most extreme tugs and pulls imaginable. Available in black/white or red/black, the impact and high stress-crack resistance of these headphones lets you live life on the edge without worries of them breaking.
Definitely created for the outgoing dare-devil, The Snug is as strong and fit as it is edgy with its bold graphics. You can also easily fold the headphones flat for convenient storing and carrying. Available in four different quirky designs, the tough tangle-free cables provide enhanced strength while its noise isolating super soft ear cushions enable total comfort and ease while standing out in the crowd.
These two headphones also feature a handy cable stretch relief option to prevent breakage – you can easily disconnect your headphones from the cables if they get caught, and then reconnect it to continue enjoying your music. Both The Stretch and The Snug have dynamic 40mm drivers to deliver crystal clear sound and deep bass.
For an active, hands-free lifestyle, The Covert provides powerful sound from its discreet and small ear buds, while offering effortless control and chat with its iPhone track control and microphone. As with the rest of the headphones in the range, they feature tangle-free cables and reinforced connectors to stand up to the wear and tear from your dynamic lifestyle.
And then there is The Specked, which comes in six daring colors including fuchsia, purple and orange. Although it screams fun and daring, it is sturdy and enhanced with tough tangle-free cables. They also come with a choice of three differently sized and colored noise isolating soft ear sleeves for ultimate style and comfort.
The Philips | O’Neill headphones are available in at all leading electronics retail outlets in Singapore and have recommended retail prices of SGD$119 for The Stretch, SGD$79 for The Snug, SGD$59 for The Covert and SGD$39 for The Specked.
