Forget Dr Dre, it’s all about Ian Taylor! The former Aston Villa football player has just launched his new iT7 headphones, and they look to be the talk of the terrace as the Premier League season nears kick off.
To quote the man himself, “Listening to music whilst training has always helped my stamina and concentration, and these headphones are the best way I’ve found of combining my favourite music with sport. Training with music helps you to keep your eye on the ball, and whether you listen to Supergrass, Sinatra or are secretly listening to Steps, there are no penalties!” Indeed.
Along with the standard iT7 model, there is also the upmarket iT7x version, which includes better noise reduction technology to ensure that your music or conversations are uninterrupted by any unwanted outside noise. The Bluetooth-enabled headphones have been designed specifically to operate for long periods of use thanks to the ultra-economic battery life – they offer a music playback time of up to 7 hours, talk time of up to eight hours, and a standby time of up to 180 hours.
Both headsets are stylish and packed with all the right specs, the Ian Taylor-designed headphones are sure to be top sellers, which begs the question – could these headphones be just the start of many more examples of gadgets from other footballers? We’re awaiting the Vidal Sassoon Alex Ferguson hair-dryer with baited breath…
Priced at £99.99 for the iT7 and £149.99 for the iT7x, the headphones are available from Tesco Phone Shop. For more information or to purchase them online visit www.tesco.com/phoneshop.
