Adidas RPD-01 is a new Sport Bluetooth Earphones that are aimed specifically at athletes. The sports earbuds should achieve up to 12 hours of battery life and cost $99.99.
If you are looking for a new wireless sports ear bud, you could find them at the well-known German sports brand Adidas now. The company recently introduced RPD-01. These are Bluetooth head phones that are connected to each other by cable. Thus, Adidas is going against the trend towards true wireless earbuds that Apple launched with its AirPods a few years ago. However, the design also has some advantages.
For example, the ear phone has a battery life of up to 12 hours and is charged via USB Type C. You can recharge for 3 hours and 45 minutes within 15 minutes. However, it takes a full 2 hours until the earphone is fully charged again. Weighing just 23 grams, you shouldn’t notice any negative effects when using them. There are three buttons on the cable, with which you can adjust the volume, switch songs back and forth and take calls. There is also an individually configurable button on the other side.
