BlueAnt Wireless has launched the PUMP HD Sportbuds wireless earbuds for intense activity and extreme conditions. Featuring best-in-class wireless range, PUMP delivers crystal clear audio and is currently the only set of wireless sport earbuds to carry the IP67 waterproof distinction.

Developed under Australian conditions over the span of nearly three years and in collaboration with extreme athletes and performance fitness enthusiasts, PUMP delivers deep, thumping sound that is designed to let the beat set the pace. On the road, in the gym or cranking down rugged single-track trails, the Pump will bring new meaning to the most intense work outs.
Energize HD Audio PUMP redefines Bluetooth audio, creating a breakthrough audiophile-grade music experience that cannot be matched by wireless rivals. Thundering bass, smooth mids, crisp treble, and sharp, yet subtle highs together comprise Energize HD Audio, making PUMP better sounding and more heart-pumping than anything sports-audio to date.
While delivering a wired headphone-like quality music experience was the lodestar of the PUMP development team, BlueAnt also equipped PUMP with the world-class microphone capabilities millions of customers have come to expect from the Bluetooth communications expert, allowing users to take calls in crystal-clear stereo. The integrated audio controls provide simple and activity-friendly control of calls and music.
Rugged Design Encased in the same military-grade Kevlar shielding used in bullet-proof vests and coated with Teflon that repels liquids on commercial cooking equipment, the BlueAnt team went to extreme lengths to make sure listeners could feel confident exposing their music to the elements. As the only earbuds in the category that qualified for an IP67 rating, PUMP keeps water and sweat out, protecting the precision-tuned components so they won't fry out after a few months, including: 12.5 mm diameter drivers, Mylar composite diaphragms, Neodymium magnets and overhung voice coils. While the PUMP can be immersed in up to 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes it is not designed for swimming as Bluetooth signal doesn't travel under large volumes of water.
Range & Comfort Train, play and live unleashed without being tethered to your device as you move around the gym or forced to deal with tangled wires on the court. Whether circuit training, shooting hoops or skiing down slopes, you can enjoy complete freedom of movement, also eliminating any worries of the sportsbuds slipping out or falling off. Included in the box are an assortment of ergonomically designed ComfortSeal tips, Comply Premium Awareness tips to let in ambient sound for added safety and stabilizers for an even more secure fit.
Battery Life Designed for the hardcore fitness enthusiast and those who lead active lifestyles outside of the gym, PUMP features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery capable of holding 8 hours of continuous playtime per charge ensuring you have the juice needed to outlast the most strenuous workouts. Listener fatigue is a real issue for the highly active, so every effort was made to minimize friction and balance, while providing rock-solid stability.
