Sport the Look

by Sofroina Timmons
You can say it's a touchdown or homerun - - either way this is a winner. Zeikos (yes, the trendsetting musical product line) has teamed up with NFL Legend and Giants Football Champion Carl Banks to market Limited Edition NFL (National Football League) and MLB (Major League Baseball) iHip Headphones and Ear Buds to all sports fans and enthusiasts alike. This electronic duo was spawned by the forever growing sports-obsessed culture that seems to become a never-ending lifestyle. Fans will enjoy clear high quality sound elements with bass enhancements and noise cancelling effects.

Banks, who will serve as the Chief Marketing Officer, will assist in marketing the NFL and MLB iHip brand accessory as an exclusive collection to over 61 Pro-League Teams including: the New York Mets, Detroit Tigers, (one of my likeable NFL team’s: Green Bay Packers...I drool for the Nordic Prince Clay Matthews) and the Dallas Cowboys. Zeikos' President, Jack Saideh, believes this partnership "will take iHip to new unprecedented levels".

In addition to iHip Headphones and Ear Buds, fans will also enjoy iHip portable speaker systems, docking stations and universal remote controls, complete with teams' logos and insignias. Children ranging from 2 to 92 can listen to the play-by-play within the stadium, or enjoy their favorite artist while operating a multi-functional instrument that is compatible with iPods, cell phones and any MP3 player laptop combining an array of stellar acoustics.

How and why did iHip start and who started it?
The Zeikos Co. was founded in the year 2000 as a Manufacturer/importer of Photo and Audio Accessories, 2008 launched with licensed electronics business. Our current licenses include Marvel Comics, Nickelodeon, National Football League, NASCAR, Major League Baseball, DC Comics, Discovery Expedition, NCAA and AGFA Accessories, and in the works with many more!

What was the inspiration for your newest collection?
I get inspiration from everything around me- right now I am working on creating exceptional sound quality headphones and more fashion-forward pieces.

What era in fashion does this collection mirror?
I would probably say it represents the now. In our current time people are always looking for something different yet something that is able to capture style- you don’t have to forsake quality and style for budget.

What's next for iHip?
We have a lot in the works but definitely something for a more fashion conscious music lover and something for everyone to use especially in the cold!

Where can iHip be purchased and at what price points?
iHip products range from $14.99 to $99.99 and can be found at Walgreen's, Best Buy, Modell's Sporting Goods and Sports Authorities or online at
