According to Soul’s CEO, Lan Kennedy-Davis, Bolt offered valuable inspiration, input and advice.
“Bolt was our inspiration for the Run-Free headphones,” began Kennedy-Davis. “The ‘fastest man on earth’ needs headphones that are lightweight, yet durable and sweat resistant, with excellent sound qualityâ€¦So, we developed a headphone that would be sweat resistant and never short out.”
The limited edition Run-Free headphones are distinguished by flexible ear hooks which can be adjusted to fit all ear shapes and sizes.
The Run-Free comes in black and black/green as a “tribute to Bolt’s home country of Jamaica,” as are the new Soul SL300 JAM headphones inspired by Bolt. The SL300JAM are “hi-definition noise-cancelling headphones” designed for athletes and travellers.
Soul’s Run-Free local pricing and availability hasn’t been announced yet, but in the US they retail for $US199.95.
