Featured Review: SOL REPUBLIC Relays In-Ear Headphones

November 10, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

SOL REPUBLIC has a bunch of great headphones and speakers available right now. And they were kind enough to send us a review unit of their Relays headphones, which we have the black color here. It’s available in a ton of colors. These headphones are aimed at those that are looking for work out headphones, and such. And yes they do stay in your ears which is nice. The cord is plenty long for me. As I’ve been using it here at my desk with my laptop for Google Play Music, which is where I normally use my Bose IME2i headphones. And the SOL REPUBLIC Relays have a bit longer cord, which is great for all kinds of circumstances. Whether you are jogging, or sitting at your desk listening to music, or whatever you’re doing.

What else is important about headphones? Oh yeah, the sound right? Well the sound on the SOL REPUBLIC Relays is actually pretty good. I used them for music, as well as watching YouTube videos and got amazing sound out of these headphones. Which kinda surprised me since the in-ear headphones usually don’t do well with sound, the full over-ear headphones are usually much better. There are controls on the cord as well which allows you to play/pause music as well as adjust the volume. There’s also a microphone included, which is great for using for phone calls, Skype Calls and Hangouts. Which I did use these for a few Hangouts and they worked great.

The SOL REPUBLIC Relays in-ear headphones are available right now for just $67 from Amazon. Which may seem like a lot, but for a premium pair of ear buds, that’s a pretty decent price. It’s available in black, gray, white, yellow, blue and a ton of other colors as well. You can grab them from the link below.
