Tracks to Rio: Francesca Halsall, Swimmer

In 2012, key British Olympians and Paralympians such as Sir Chris Hoy and Richard Whitehead wore our headphones both in training and preparation before their main events. Ahead of Rio 2016, a new generation of athletes share with us the music that helps them get into the zone.

Listening to music is fundamental to many professional athletes both in training or for winding down. Our P5 Wireless noise-isolating headphones have been tuned by the finest engineers, the same engineers responsible for our flagship 800 Series speakers, allowing you to forget the headphones and just feel the music.

Commonwealth Gold medallist and European Silver medalist Francesca Halsall has given us her current favourite tracks:

Biggy Smalls – Big Poppa

Fabulous- Can’t let you go 

Usher- Bad girl 

Jay Z- Bonnie and Clyde


Kanye West – Gold digger

Mr Probz- Waves 

Ben Pearce – What I might do

The Weekend- The hills 

Faithless – Insomnia

Jay-z & Linkin Park – Numb

Usher – Yeah 

Azealia Banks – 212

Turn on, tune in, wind down.
