Tone Active is a sporty bluetooth earphone that is compact and resistant to sweat and unexpected rain thanks to its nano PCB coating and retractable wire. The design keeps the earphones in place during rigorous outdoor activities. The replaceable stabilizer tip or “wing tip” is available in two sizes so that it fits the user comfortably. No more wires and small parts swinging around your neck! The quad layer speaker unit guarantees sound quality, whilst APT-X codec and G-class amp reduce noise, offering a wireless earphone experience like never before.
