British musician Tim Burgess (lead singer of The Charlatans) and the company Flare Audio organized a collaboration, in which they released the TLP1 branded in-ear headphones (10 mm speakers, purple aluminum cases, protected cable).
The name of the model is directly related to Burgess’ Twitter Listening Parties project, which was created during last year’s home quarantine (Burgess, other musicians and fans jointly organize virtual music sessions and share their thoughts via Twitter).
The main idea of the collaboration is not to promote the work of Tim Burgess and his Twitter Listening Parties, but that from each sold headphones Burgess and Flare Audio will make a contribution of 5 pounds in support of the organization for the protection of music clubs Music Venue Trust (MVT). Recently, we wrote about the MVT’s concerns about the critical situation in the field of private music institutions in the UK.
Sales of Burgess headphones will begin on March 26, but pre-order has already been launched. The first customers were promised various bonuses: badges, autographed postcards, unique earplugs and other accessories in the musician’s signature style. The price of the headphones was 40 pounds.
