Want a pair of headphones that are shockproof and water-resistant? Engineered by leading rugged-gear company Outdoor Tech, Rhinos headphones can follow you everywhere you want to go – be it trekking through the Himalayas, or Kayaking in the Komodo Islands. Outdoor Tech is a California-based tech company popular for their rugged power banks and wireless Audio products.
The Rhinos headphones are IPX6 Splash-Proof and can handle being chucked. Dropped it in the water? It will even float, so you can just pick it up! The headbands are so rugged, it can take more than your regular twists and bends. And when not in use, you can fold them in to stow them in your rucksack.
The Rhinos boast large button controls that handle your volume level and music. It also comes with a speakerphone and the ODT Audio app that introduces an innovative Walkie Talkie function. It’s handy when you have multiple friends using Rhinos on your next trek through the Gobi desert.
It can be cold in the desert too, so the Rhinos are designed to operate even in extreme cold temperatures up to -20 degrees Celcius. It packs an 8 hour battery life playing on full volume, and its 40mm drivers will ensure that you won’t miss out on great sound quality as well.
I have never seen a pair of headphones designed to take such punishment. Normally, people would rather use purpose-built earbuds for outdoor activities believing that headphones cannot handle all that H2O and kinetic force thrown at them. That might change with the Rhinos from Outdoor Tech, which you can pre-order on Kickstarter now for S$127 (or US$99, RRP US$130). They have already met their Kickstarter goal as of this writing. The Rhinos will ship anywhere in the world starting from July 2017. Available in Black, Grey and Dark Blue.
