The problem with headphones these days is that you need worry not only about sound, but also about functionality. It’s one thing to sit on your couch or office chair and enjoy quality audio, it’s another thing entirely to do so when out for a jog, on the subway, or when exercisting. BOOM looks to address this issue with the Spooners, “… an earbud that is functional and Ready For Anything™.”
BOOM founder, Ryan Minarik, set out with members of their Global Design Center to solve the eternal problem of headphone cord management. Working with college students and BOOM’s team of Action Sports Athletes, BOOM gained unique insights into this everyday problem that influenced the unique industrial design of the SPOONERS.
The SPOONERS’ magnetic nesting design puts an end to that tangled mess in your pocket. Wrap the cord around the body of the ear buds and you are good to go anywhere. Simply flip the buds, snap them together and wrap. In addition to cord management, the SPOONERS also come standard with a silicone three-button iPod/iPhone control.
BOOM has created a headphone that is durable enough to withstand the extreme abuse that Team Riders Pierre-Luc Gagnon (PLG) and Kris Fox put their headphones through. Pushing the limits every day, these athletes helped design a headphone that fit their lifestyle. Our athletes specified the preference of a bud form factor over an in-ear as critical so that they can hear their board or bike react to the terrain. The SPOONERS also come with detachable sport tips that allow users to lock and secure the headphones in their ear while exercising for increased noise isolation. As part of BOOM’s R4A (Ready For Anything) platform, the SPOONERS are IPX level 4 water resistant, dust resistant, and shock tested to follow you anywhere. Dish it out, we can take it.
