Adidas RPT-01 Washable Headphones

Adidas Washable Headphones

Have you ever wondered how those people at the gym keep their headphones clean? They probably don't and they're probably a lot more disgusting after each use. 

The Adidas RPT-01 headphones on the other hand are washable. It's not that you can put the whole headphone in the washing machine to clean it. The knitted ear cushions and inner headband are removable so you can put them in the washing machine and use them fresh and clean.

The headphones itself is IPX4-rated water resistant, meaning it is splashproof but you probably shouldn't submerge it in water. 

If a device can resist water being sprayed from all directions for 5 minutes, it is IPX4 certified.

Other Features

The Adidas RPT-01 is a Bluetooth 5.0 on-ear headphone with 40+ hours of battery life. It not mentioned how long it takes to charge via the included USB-C cable but USB-C charging tend to be pretty fast.

Bluetooth 5.0 technology ensures that there is no lag when watching movies.

It also comes with microphone and remote for taking calls, adjusting volume, and doing certain actions.

What about sound quality?

Adidas is not known for making sound producing devices but the RPT-01 is made in collaboration with Stockholm-based Zound industries, who are the same team behind Marshall speakers and headphones.

We assume the quality are at least on par with Marshall headphones if not better. Reviews on the sound quality at the Adidas website seems to be good so far.

Pros

  • Washable
  • Bluetooth 5.0 does not lag
  • Splashproof
  • Marshall sound quality

Cons

  • Not waterproof
  • Seemingly cannot be used wired in case battery runs out

Conclusion:

The Adidas RPT-01 is one of the few on-ear headphones that are splashproof. It's the only one we know that is washable. Sound quality may be unproven but we're pretty sure it's at least on par with Marshall headphones of the same price.
