NIXA, MO (November 10th, 2014) – Red Fox Wireless, an emerging company in the sports and outdoor market that makes Bluetooth wireless headphones and accessories, is proud to support the MetroPCS Dallas Marathon as the Official Headphone Sponsor.
As a newer player to the market, the impetus for Red Fox Wireless came in the fall of 2010 while CEO & Founder Josh Cates was mountain biking in Red Rocks Canyon and his tangled earphone wires got caught in his tire and caused a crash. Realizing the need for a high quality wire free audio technology alternative, Red Fox was born and launched holiday of 2013. In less than one year, Red Fox has become a premiere brand of bluetooth solutions and accessories for an active lifestyle, and is used by Olympians such as Hunter Kemper and Andy Potts.
Red Fox’s flagship product, the EDGE Bluetooth Headphones, were featured in this past June’s issue of Runner’s Worldas “BestCordlessHeadphones.” The design is comfortable, lightweight, and easy to use. Built-in controls also allow the user to wirelessly change song tracks, control volume, make and take phone calls, and activate Siri or Google Voice.
“If you’re a runner who trains with music, you know how frustrating wires can be,” said Red Fox CEO and Co-Founder Josh Cates. “We’re all about promoting a healthy lifestyle and if music, audio books or podcasts make it easier for people to get outside, we’re happy to give them the ability to focus on their run, and not the wires by offering a lightweight, easy to use and high quality product.”
To celebrate this partnership, Red Fox is offering 20% off of their full line of products at the MetroPCS Dallas Marathon Health & Fitness Expo and online. Simply visit www.RedFoxWireless.com and enter code WERUNDALLAS at checkout or stop by their booth in December.
