Swiss sports brand On and Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen join forces to create the ultimate running kit.
August 2020, Dubai UAE – Shared design philosophies and a fascination for deepening human experiences brought On and Bang & Olufsen together: running and music are fundamental ways for us to experience the world.
Today sees the release of the ultimate running kit: On’s latest elite-level competition shoe, the Cloudboom, alongside a limited edition of Bang & Olufsen’s first true wireless sports earphones: Beoplay E8 Sport On Edition.
No compromises on performance.
Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay E8 Sport On Edition earphones are housed in a compact wireless charging case that blends performance driven materials from the sports universe, such as rubber and textured silicone, with strong and corrosion resistant anodised aluminum – a Bang & Olufsen trademark for more than 50 years. Intricate design details such as a ridged gripped detail on the earphones helps adjustments when fingers are wet and sweaty, and to avoid unnecessary stopping or distraction while running, the earphones can switch between tracks, take calls and activate Transparency Mode all with a simple tap or swipe of the finger.
This special edition features both Bang & Olufsen’s and On’s minimalist logos, highlighted by colour contrasting aluminum rings and a cloud pattern, seamlessly blending design and tech.
“We are excited to join forces with On Running to create the ultimate experience for runners. Beoplay E8 Sport are Bang & Olufsen’s first dedicated sports earphones that combine what people are specifically looking for: a waterproof and customizable design that brings comfort to long runs and workouts, playtime that lasts way beyond the finish line and, most importantly, excellent sound quality – everyone tells us that nothing is more important than powerful music that can motivate, push you further and perform at your best”, says Bang & Olufsen VP of Product Management Christoffer Poulsen.
