Adidas is probably best known for its sneakers and activewear, but the brand has a foothold in the audio market, too. And now through May 9, its fitness-focused RPT-01 Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones and FWD-01 Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones are discounted to all-time low prices on Amazon.
- RPT-01 Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones ($149.99, originally $169.99; amazon.com)
- FWD-01 Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones ($99.99, originally $149.99; amazon.com)
The Adidas RPT-01 Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones were built for working out. For starters, they’re IPX4-rated, meaning they’re more than capable of handling sweat. And speaking of sweat, the ear cushions and inner headband are both washable, so no need to worry about going too hard on your next run.
The RPT-01 features a light, flexible and durable design. Weighing in at just over 7 ounces, they won’t interfere with your exercise routine — and they look good, too, with a fabric design with the classic Adidas stripes on the headband. To top it all off, these headphones should be able to provide up to 40 hours of playback on a single charge.
The FWD-01 goes the in-ear route, with the buds connecting to each other via a knitted cable. The cable contains all the controls for the device, as well as a microphone for calls. And along with magnets in the buds, the cable makes these buds easy to wear around your neck. Like the RPT-01 on-ear headphones, the FWD-01 buds are IPX4-rated to keep sweat at bay. With up to 16 hours of playback, they don’t last as long as the headphones, but fast USB-C charging should make it easy to bring these back to full battery in time for your next workout.
