When you really like something, you probably want to get it in multiples. So it isn’t a surprise that after the Advice Sisters reviewed a sensational set of on-ear Headphones from SOL REPUBLIC, around the time of the Summer Olympics, in red white and blue, inspired by Olympic Swimmer and superstar, Michael Phelps., Then, Oops! we did it again! We fell in love with Sol Republic’s Tokidoki and TKDK Tracks HD headphones personally designed by Simone Legno, Tokidoki’s creative director and co-founder.
Sol Republic’s headphones are unusual because you can mix and match the components, You can get a set, and then mix one of the plastic (Remix) headbands with different set of ear cups(sound engine speakers) and even a range of colorful microphone cables. Of course you can get the set and wear them as a set, but you can buy entire sets, or buy pieces (e.g. you can can purchase the headband, cable and sound engines separately— cords are just $19.99 each, headphone bands in $29.99 and $34.99 depending upon styles. The sound engine speakers (earpads) are available in chrome for $89.99 and black for $69.99. Sol Republic’s on-ear Tracks sets start at $99.00 and in-ear Amps start at $59.00 . The price for high quality headphones like these can and often is, way higher. These headphones offer good sound and a great value. I ) and make an entire wardrobe of headphones out of Sol Republic components that totally express your personality. The hard plastic headbands are crafted from an advanced polymer compound, so SOL REPUBLIC’S FlexTech™ Sound Track headbands can be twisted, bent or dropped, and they’re not going to break. And the sound in really good. Sol Republic gives you a nice, rich, deep bass and vocals that are really clear. Plus the cord has a pause and a volume control. There is also a soft-sided, slimline carrying case.
But as I mentioned, if you love something, you’ll give your heart and SOL to it. So this holiday season, we went a bit “upscale” and tried the Sol Republic Tracks Ultra On-Ear Headphones (V12) Srp. $179.00. Sol Republic has a variety of differnt headphones at different price points, and while these still feature the interchangeable ear cups and head band, they are pricier, with a more sophisticated sound profile. The V12 sound engine gives you a slightly deeper base. The Sonicsoft speaker pads are more luxuriously padded. A 3-button control on the cord is designed to be compatible with most late generation Apple devices and the audio and mic are most likely to work with devices that have a 3.5,mm jack, including Android, Windows and Blackberry devices. There is a one year warranty and free shipping.
What can I say other than I have given my heart to Sol (Republic). These headphones are just so cool. In fact, my former personal trainer, who swore by his “beats” saw my SOL Republics, and had to have his own. This guy, who considered himself the epitome of cool and who really appreciated good sound, thought Sol Republic beat out Beats. I have worn various styles of Sol Republic headphones to the gym and on my head for hours, and they really are comfortable enough so you won’t have to shift them around or even take then off “for a breather.” And they come nicely boxed, so you can just add a a box, and take a bow, as you get applause from your astounded recipient for your fabulous gift[=giving prowess.
