Millennials are always on the move and continuously connected via mobile technology. Hence, they rely on microphones/headphones that are not connected to their devices (hands-free), whether to listen to pulsating music during their workouts or for calls on smartphones. Being on the move means there is a high probability of sweating or exposure to moisture/water, which could adversely affect the headphones.

Each has an inbuilt microphone for hands-free speaking and a micro USB charging cable.

Its water resistance rating is IPX5, which means that it is safe even from low-pressure jets of water from any direction. The free ends of the earplugs are magnetic, so that they don’t dangle (or get entangled) like two helpless pendulums when not in use.
