Press Release from X-1 Audio

SAN DIEGO, Calif. , May 30, 2013 - X-1 Audio, the leader in waterproof and sweatproof headphones, releases the much-anticipated Momentum ear bud to bolster its highly popular line. The new ear bud is designed with an emphasis on sound quality yet allows the user to hear their surroundings - all in one small, lightweight package.

“The Momentum ear bud will be the first headphone we’ve released that specifically allows ambient noise,” said Dana Swanson, X-1 Audio Marketing Director. “It’s perfect for runners in urban areas, cyclists, and moms jogging with strollers.”

The multipurpose ear fin is integral to the high quality sound of the new Momentum ear bud. Not only does it direct sound towards the ear canal to enhance treble and bass, the fin ensures headphones stay in place during even the most rigorous activities.

X-1’s sweatproof and rinsable headphones are designed to withstand the elements, from inclement weather to heavy perspiration. Once the user’s workout is complete, the headphones can easily be rinsed to provide a fresh, clean fit each time. The tangle free, reflective cord with in-line mic and remote provides safety at night while allowing for hands-free placement of phone calls or activation of SIRI.

The groundbreaking X-1 Momentum ear bud (MSRP $49.99) is available for purchase online at X-1.com/store/
