Are you part of the next outdoor running revolution?
10 November 2011
Sennheiser and runbritain are giving you the chance to win Awareness!™ a new outdoor running smartphone app and a pair of Sennheiser/adidas MX 680i headphones at www.facebook.com/runbritain.
Like many runners who enjoy exercising outdoors, you will be aware of the hazards and dress appropriately, investing in the right shoes and high-vis clothing, but do you include your headphones in this mix?
Considering the safety concerns of runners who benefit from running with music, Sennheiser make headphones fit for purpose; that not only handle sweat and rain but also allow external sound to filter in to make runners more aware of the environment around them.
Now, in partnership with UK app company Essency (www.essency.co.uk), they have developed a new and innovative iPhone app specifically designed with runners' safety in mind.
The new app is appropriately named ‘Awareness!™ The Headphone App’ and it monitors outside noise via headphones featuring an in-line mic. If a specified sound level is reached, the outside noise (car horn, lorry etc) is transmitted into your headphones making the runner aware of potential dangers. Awareness! works with Apple’s iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, iPod Touch 4 and Touch 3 (with a headset) and will be available for Android next year.
To promote safe running, Sennheiser and runbritain are offering you the chance to trial Awareness! free of charge (RRP £4.99) and win a pair of Sennheiser/adidas MX 680i to complete your running kit.
To be a part of this and to tell your friends, simply visit runbritain on Facebook at www.facebook.com/runbritain by 19th November 2011 and tell us in 30 words why you should be chosen for the trial.
Five lucky winners will be announced on 22nd November 2011, on the runbritain facebook wall. If you’re not one of the lucky ones you will be able to see the runners' honest feedback.
