During the summer, Iceland is the Land of the Midnight Sun, with nearly 24-hours of daylight for that part of the year. This created a unique challenge for a group of runners from Paris, who set off to travel by foot across this beautiful and spectacular country. Their relay would cover hundreds of miles and require hours of running out on the trail. Naturally, they needed a set of wireless earbuds that could keep them moving while in the midst of this challenge. The new Powerbeats Pro by Beats –– who sponsored this 280 km (174 mile) endeavor –– were a natural fit, thanks in no small part to their 9 hour battery life. But did they survive the challenge along with the runners?
