Lifestyle brand adidas has launched two new headphones that are co-created by athletes to meet the specific needs of different disciplines. TC Acoustic, which is the official distributor of adidas Sport headphones in Singapore, will carry the new gadgets at their TC Acoustic Showroom.

Partnering with Zound Industries, the new collection will premiere these new headphones: FWD-01 in-ear is designed for the needs of runners, while RPT-01 on-ear is made for training. Ella Renneus, designer at Zound, Industries said, “Our starting point for adidas Sport headphones was the desire to match the unrivalled experience that adidas loyalists expect from their footwear and apparel. For every adidas product, empowering athletes to create in any field of play is paramount. This is so true for headphones, which have the power to enhance and really change day to day life.”

Both FWD-01 (S$249) and RPT-01 (S$299) feature knitted fabrics that are sweat-proof and good enough for both gym and the streets.
