Urbanears pays homage to French Open with new Active Hellas headphones edition

Urbanears-rolland-garrosThe French Open is one of the famous four in the tennis world, where winning all of these four tournaments in a single calendar year would mean that one would pick up the elusive Grand Slam. This is truly a unique ground where clay brings about a whole new dimension of tennis. Urbanears has decided to pay homage to the hallowed grounds of Rolland Garros thanks to its latest Active Hellas headphones edition.

Swedish headphone brand Urbanears is more than pleased to be part of the Roland–Garros tradition, thanks to this particular maiden collaboration effort. As a result, one would behold the clay-red edition of Hellas, which would be a pair of sweat-friendly wireless Bluetooth headphones that happen to hail from the new Active collection.

Oscar Axhede, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Urbanears, shared, “This official collaboration is an epic moment for us. Our special edition Hellas celebrate that creative flair and passion we see played out at Roland– Garros each year. We’re delighted to work alongside such a design-conscious brand like Urbanears to color a pair of headphones in our trademark clay-red.”

Sports headphone Hellas ensures that things remain classy on the courts thanks to a washable headband as well as ear-cushions, an integrated microphone, and a swipe interface which would allow you to cycle through your power-playlist without having to use anything else other than your finger, now how about that? If you are going to make your way to Paris this spring to attend the French Open, then you can pick up the Roland-Garros edition at Roland-Garros stadium shops, at select stores and online at for $120 a pop. Surely this is one pair of headphones that are extremely stylish, and even if you do not reach the kind of playing skills like that of Rafael Nadal on clay during his heydays, then at least you look darn good while bowing out to your opponent.
