Beatband / Beatband


The "beatband" is a clever combination of headphones and headbands. It is made of flexible high quality polyurethane foam and leather, which keeps the forehead warm and sweatless. The foam band replaces the ear cushions due to its form-adaptive nature and provides an unique sound experience. Especially athletes or sporty people will enjoy this product, since the design of the headband ensures a much stronger hold during activities than normal earphones. That way it becomes possible to enjoy your music in headphone quality while doing something good for your health.
