With a pair of SOL Republic Headphones I tune out the cacophony while running errands in the center of the universe, a.k.a. New York City.

Your podcast/audio book/music, etc., is clear, crisp and full-bodied. Still, the sound of the outside world is not completely shut out, so you can still hear an oncoming cyclist or unconscious text-er in time to step out of the way.

That’s one of the great features of the SOL REPUBLIC head phones.

Here is how Sol Republic puts it:

We introduced the world’s first completely interchangeable headphones. Now, we’re putting you in charge of customizing them.

  • Mix up the colors of the Sound Track headbands and cable to match your style. Choose your level of sound quality between our V8 and V10 Sound Engines. Mix them, match them, make them your own.
  • Virtually indestructible Sound Track headband in 8 colors, including red, white, black, Progressive Purple, Glitch Grey, Electro Blue, Dub Orange and House Pink
  • V8 Sound Engines delivering deep bass and high clarity or V10 Sound Engines delivering deeper bass, higher clarity and crisp vocals
  • Single-button cables with omni-directional microphone are also available in red, white, black, Progressive Purple, Glitch Grey, Electro Blue, Dub Orange and House Pink

By the way, I know I’m not the only one to notice Michael Phelps wearing the Sol Republic headphones to the swimming competitions at the Olympics in London.

    …the SOL Republic headphones sounded very nice when I had them plugged into my phone. But when I used them on my laptop the sound was inconsistent from track to track. When the sound was nice, they really sounded great. The little button in the cable had to be pressed down otherwise the speakers went mute…(don’t have a user guide) so I taped it down and it was all good again. Today I used it on my phone again…it sounds better on the phone…the highs are high, lows are low, the mids are how mids should sound, and the volume didn’t fluxuate as it did on the laptop.

    that sounds (…sorry pun, I admit) great because i can tune out the world but still hear enough of it to keep me from getting splattered into the pavements…

      I love the sound of puns! Especially the smiles and laughter (o.k., o.k., sometimes groans) they elicit. And yes, smiles are audible.
