The XTfree and XTplyo were designed with high-intensity interval training in mind, Skullcandy said. The result is “products that enhance even the most intense training sessions through category leading durability, stability, and leading audio quality,” the headphones maker said.
“Whether you're a weekend warrior preparing for your first 10K running race or a World class athlete, we believe music helps athletes reach their full potential and accomplish their goals,” Skullcandy Chief Commercial Officer Sam Paschel said in a statement. “This inspiration was at the center of our product development efforts. … The XTfree and XTplyo products are built to perform during the high intensity workouts that form the backbone of [athletes’] training.”
