There’s no shortage of products that come with Limited Edition variations, sometimes mass produced, while other times with an extremely limited run. So just how do you take the concept of the Limited Edition to the next level? With sweat of course! Urbanears took seven individuals from the sport, music, and fashion industries, gave them each a pair of Urbanears Hella headphones, and let them sweat it out in the Mojave desert.
Three of these special editions were created by running coach Knox Robinson, dancer ‘WilldaBeast’ Adams, and musician Amanda Bergman, while the other sweat-soaked headphones up for sale were created by British singer V V Brown, American model Barbie Ferreira, German fashionista Bonnie Strange, and French DJ and entrepreneur Nadege Winter.
”The Limited Sweat Edition is about really going for it in whatever activity you choose,” says Sofia Hjelm, brand manager at Urbanears. “Teaming up with these creative individuals who also happen to enjoy breaking a sweat makes perfect sense for us.”
Each pair of Hellas headphones is sealed in a bag post-workout, signed, and labeled with the details of the sweat-session. If you purchase a pair, you are given the choice to either keep the headphones as a collectors item, or pop open the bag and put them back into use — which may sound disgusting, but Hellas’ headband and ear cushions are 100% washable.
The first Limited Sweat Edition Hella headphones will go on sale tomorrow May 27th, for $119USD per pair — with additional pairs to be released in the weeks to come. Would you purchase a Limited Sweat Edition headphone set — and would you keep them sealed or rip ’em open and use them?
