Patriotic Bluetooth Earphones

Steven Lamar Designed These Athlete-Inspired Versatile Headphones

— July 21, 2016 — Tech
Steven Lamar is the creator of 'ROPES USA' -- a brand of Bluetooth headphones that were inspired by American athletes and servicemen.

The designer claims the impressive title of the Beats by Dre co-creator, giving Steven Lamar's product an instant marketability. The colorful headphones are said to be "the world’s first fully-integrated, wearable, Bluetooth earphones with companion amplifier and audio personalization app."

With this, ROPES USA expands on Steven Lamar's previous ROAM ROPES, offering a patriotic colorway in time for the 2016 Rio Olympics. In order to prevent tangles of wires, the device is worn around the neck, which allows consumers to have more convenient access to it as well. With the mobile app, the audio frequencies can be adjusted so that the sound can be changed to suit a variety of preferences.
