On Running understands how important music is to training. Whether it’s for the inspiration needed to go the extra mile or to set the mood to motivate yourself to get started, having the right music is key. The only catch is the fine line between being a source of motivation or becoming a distraction. Wires are a no-go, since nothing ruins your pace like becoming a tangled mess. Yet, wireless headphones need to be sweat-proof and withstand use for hours on end. The partnership of Bang & Olufsen and On Running brings together pioneers of performance when it comes to audio and running. Those two have come together to provide the perfect solution. The Bang & Olufsen x On Running Kit combines each of their expertise to accelerate your training. The Bang & Olufsen and On Running collaboration consists of the Cloudboom carbon-fiber infused sneaker and the limited-edition Beoplay E8 Sport On Edition earphones.
The wireless headphones are optimized for runners by being engineered to be entirely waterproof and ergonomically designed to fit into place without the risk of falling out. Transparency mode activates to keep runners dialed into their surroundings so they can stay safe over the course of seven hours of non-stop playback. The battery life can be extended to 30 hours with the portable charging case.
Those expertly engineered earbuds are just half of the equation. On Running’s contribution to this running kit offers the Cloudboom sneaker. The carbon-fiber Speedboard makes the running shoe lightweight and responsive to each stride. For the first time ever, On Running couples its CloudTec sole — known for emulating the experience of walking on air — with Helion superfoam for an especially adaptive fit and sublimely cushioned comfort. Together, the Beoplay E8 Sport On Edition wireless headphones and Cloudboom running shoe can take your training to the next level.
