Philips | O’Neill Durable Headphones


'The Snug' - Philips | O'Neill Super Durable Headphones


Sometimes, the disposable culture we live in can really be a downer. Don’t get us started on the 60 Minutes special that showed viewers what really happens to all of our old (or not so old) electronics.

Well, have no fear… if you’re as tired as we are of buying new headphones every two months, worry no ‘mo.

Two pioneers of lifestyle innovation, Philips and O’Neill, have joined forces to launch a line of headphones designed to withstand all the rigors of a truly active eco adventuring lifestyle: the new premium line of Philips | O’Neill Headphones gives you long-lasting durability and complete comfort so you can enjoy the music that fuels you every day, for as long as you want, no matter what mountain you climb, swell you ride, or ramp you skate.

The high performance headphones were tested on the toughest O’Neill team riders and specifically designed around the demands of those who live life to the fullest and take no prisoners. The collection features four different styles, each completely unique and simple in design. Inspired by the heavy-duty materials and styling of wetsuit materials, The Stretch headphones – the toughest in the new line-up – delivers high performance. Both impact and high stress-crack resistant, it retains flexibility and strength for a whole new level in headphone resilience.

The Snug model does it all in style: a set of imposing flat-folding, headphones that deliver flawless fit and sound with bold graphics (these might be our personal fave). The in-ear selection includes The Covert, a discreet bud with deceptively powerful sound impact and iPhone control, while The Specked includes a range of three striking colored in-ear buds, with tough yet stylish tangle-free cords for longer listening experiences.

These new headphones are totally uncompromising in their durability because they’ve been tested on their own test animals: the toughest O’Neill riders, the most uncompromising and daring boarders around.

The Philips | O’Neill campaign will be spearheaded by selected O’Neill team riders, including 9-time Big Mountain Rider of the Year Jeremy Jonesfearless big wave surfer Mark Mathews, and two-time Freeride World Tour Champion Ane Enderud. As three of their sports’ toughest and most enduring champions, these riders have put the headphones to the ultimate test in the context of their own demanding lifestyles.

Available at stores throughout Europe and the US from Sept. 2010 so get ’em while they last!
