  • How do you stay safe when you’re out running after dark? Wear bright or reflective clothes, and invest in a headtorch. This will light up the sidewalk and help drivers to see you.
  • What are light-up headphones? With bright LEDs inside each earpiece, Leah headphones make it easier for drivers to see you at night.

Driving at night is never easy. When you’re looking straight into oncoming headlights, it’s easy to miss a pedestrian in dark clothing. For this reason, more deadly accidents happen at night than during the day.

If you regularly walk home from work or go jogging around the block after dark, it’s worth thinking about these risks. While reflective clothing can certainly make a difference, wearing a bright light is even better.

With bright LEDs embedded in each earpiece, the Leah light-up headphones provide a good warning to drivers. In addition, they deliver your workout playlist with excellent audio quality.

Can light-up headphones really keep you safe?

Even if you wear no other safety aids, Leah headphones will have a significant effect on your visibility after dark.

Each earpiece contains a powerful red LED light which shines brightly on dark nights. You can actually see these headphones from 100 yards away, so drivers have time to react.

Just as importantly, the design ensures that the headphones are visible through 360 degrees. Even if someone is directly behind you, the red glow can still be seen.
