This series of headphones was designed to suit the modern person’s active lifestyle, adaptable for usage while at the gym, running, or dancing. Much as Sony pioneered the idea of portability with the original “Walkman”, these headphones provide unique wear ability. The design focus is on “energy,” akin to that of a pole that is bent with force — flexible and yet strong. It is this energy that is built into the headphone shape.
