The big question is: why aren't all headphones designed like this?

"They are well made, comfortable to wear for long periods, have excellent controls, the battery lasts a long time and you could carry a spare one if you wanted to. They connect to two Bluetooth devices at once, support high quality audio standards and sound great. They even have pretty good noise cancelling and are weather resistant despite being modular.''

Superior sound meets sustainable technology

A new superior sound experience that lasts longer than all-day with 30 hours of battery. The first headphones which harmonise clarity from a dynamic 40mm driver and unrivalled sustainable technology, resulting in a deep bass, warm mids and clear highs for even longer.

Don't forget the Bluetooth 5.1 connection can hold 2 devices at once so no one misses out and you can even plug in for a traditional wire connection to your smartphone. Either way, you'll still have smart voice assistants active like Siri and Alexa to help you through the day and minimise pauses between your sounds.

Fairphone - Repairable phones that last longer

The Fairphone's modular design means repairs can be made affordably and easily when swapping the phone’s screen, cameras, ports and battery, all you'll need is a screwdriver to help maximise the Fairphone's value. Your Co-op also provides a climate-positive benefit to your contract with a 10kg carbon reduction each month, as well as trees planted throughout your contract period thanks to our climate-impact partners, Ecologi.
Regularly upgrading your phone can become a thing of the past. A repairable phone can help to reduce e-waste and carbon emissions, but the Fairphone can especially as it's a climate-conscious device made with Fairtrade, responsibly sourced and recycled materials.

The average user of a Fairphone keeps their device for 5 years at a time and this is only growing, saving users 31% of their annual carbon emissions made by their smartphones. This longevity is made possible by a simple modular design, an industry-leading 5-year warranty and ongoing software support.
