Katrin Davidsdottir and Annie Thorisdottir Launch Line of Athlete-Focused Earphones
Two-time CrossFit Games champions Katrin Davidsdottir and Annie Thorisdottir have partnered together to shake up the headphone industry. They have unveiled the Dottir Freedom On-Grid wireless earphones, which boast a 72-hour charge time and the ability to hold up in both the gym and the water.
The details: Available to preorder for £120 / $150, the Dottir Freedom On-Grid earphones feature a “rugged, IPX7 water and sweatproof design” with a wrap-around design that keeps them in place during intense WODs and swimming workouts. The active, noise-canceling system keeps athletes focused while training.
- The Red Dot Award-winning earphones feature three microphones in each earpiece, as well as volume controls and a multi-function button.
- A wireless charging case provides 72 hours of playtime with five total charges. The Bluetooth connection provides a range up to 10 meters/33 feet.
“We have been looking for a headphone to withstand the demands of our training schedule for some time,” said Davidsdottir and Thorisdottir in a statement. “We haven’t found one yet that has the battery life, waterproofing or fit that complements our training style and so we decided to design and launch our own. Dóttir Freedom On-Grid has all the features and considerations that we feel will compliment anyone who is active, no matter what your sport”.
Why it matters: Thorisdottir already took the leap to expand her business portfolio by investing in Yerbae, joining several prominent athletes from other sports. Launching the earphone company with Davidsdottir continues this trend and ensures that both champs will have even more options to earn money once they walk away from the competition floor.
