While other companies have simply thrown ideas at the wall to see what stuck, JBL, Inc., and Roxy formed a strategic union of technology and style to build a line of beautiful and powerful audio accessories designed by women for women. Internal research made one thing clear: Music is a huge part of everyday living, whether it’s listened to inside or outside. Furthermore, Brunel University research found that listening to motivational music boosts endurance by 15 percent (www.brunel.ac.uk/news/pressoffice/cdata/costas+run+to+the+beat).
