"For me, it’s about each and every experience in a journey, so building on my relationship with JBL came naturally and gave me the opportunity to recognize and appreciate where I come from," said Antetokounmpo. "JBL headphones have become part of my everyday life and being able to represent my heritage through this unique design gives me an opportunity to take others on this journey."

This is the first headphone collaboration for JBL and Antetokounmpo. The first drop from the Freak Edition headphones series will be designs of the popular JBL Tour One and Endurance Peak II with the hoops star’s signature and an eye-catching blue and green distorted dye impression of a map of Europe where Greece is the standout.

"Giannis has been a key ambassador with JBL for more than three years now, so we were excited that he wanted to take the partnership to the next level by creating a design uniquely his own," said Ralph Santana, Chief Marketing Officer at HARMAN. "From day one, Giannis wanted to play a key role in designing and launching the Freak Edition line. You can’t ask for a better partner."
