ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SOUL® Electronics is fueling the competitor in all of us to get in the zone with the new Combat series – the first-ever true over-ear and on-ear headphone line built for athletic performance. The Combat series is designed to deliver premium-performance comfort and audio that fans of SOUL Electronics expect and includes the Combat+ Over-Ear Headphones, Transform On-Ear Headphones and Flex Sport Earphones offering a solution for every active lifestyle. With seven out of ten consumers using headphones for athletic activities – and 67% of these consumers seeking on-ear and 59% seeking over-ear headphones – the Combat series also fills a long-standing void in the marketplace.
The new Combat series was inspired and rigorously tested by SOUL ambassadors Tim Tebow and Usain Bolt – ESPY award winning athletes who both topped Forbes 2013 list of Most Influential Athletes in America. See Tebow and Bolt put Soul's new Combat+ headphones to the test during their intense training sessions here.
Inspired and tested by top professional athletes, the Combat Series' performance features and styling are designed specifically for active people. From the wide breathable headband for secure fit, the Comply™ body heat activated memory foam for comfort and better seal from external noise distraction, sweat-resistant sound drivers, and bacterial resistant surfaces, each element was inspired directly from features that Tim Tebow and Usain Bolt need to sustain the intensity of their sports training and active lifestyles. The Combat Series line makes the headphones perfect for most outdoor activities, whether you are practicing for the big game or Olympic event or if you are hiking, running, biking or simply walking the dog.
"Working with Tebow and Bolt gave us insight into the power music has to inspire and drive athletes to perform their best," said Lan Kennedy-Davis, CEO SOUL Electronics USA. "The Combat Series incorporates the latest in active performance technology and design, delivering a range of products for athletes and weekend warriors alike."
"Being able to listen to music while I'm training helps me focus and workout harder, longer. The SOUL Combat Series is built to make it through tough workouts while still sounding, feeling and looking awesome," said Tim Tebow, SOUL ambassador.
"Music has always been an important part of my training routine. Before I had Soul's Combat+ headphones to use, I couldn't find headphones that could keep up with me and offer the comfort and sound to keep me going through tough workouts," said Usain Bolt, Olympic gold medalist and SOUL ambassador.
