EOps noisezero sports+ earphones black/red version
the EOps noisezero sports+ earphones contain 20% recycled content and feature 9mm HD titanium driver units for optimum sound quality.
comply foam tips used on the buds offer wearers passive noise isolation. the sweat proof design takes the form of a sportsfin structure
in order that they fit securely in the outer ear. the three-button version microphone and remote module is sound along the cable and lets you
control playback along with volume level for recent iPhone, iPad and iPod models. the earphones are available in red/black and black/red options
and come with interchangeable small/medium/large pairs of silicone ear tips.
