Extensive Consumer Testing Improves New Sol Republic Headphones

By David Richards | Monday | 13/01/2014

According to Sol Republic executives early consumer testing revealed that users of the Companies new sports ear buds had a problem with the in-ear headphones after 30 minutes of use a total redesign fixed the problem.

The new pair of sports ear buds was revealed at CES 2014, Called the' Relays' the company's latest buds are being touted as the earphone version of a cross-trainer shoe.

Featuring a stylish design, as well as Sol's adaptable Free Flex technology the Company has created a pair of headphones that the Companies Marketing Director Seth Combs claims is equally at home on the treadmill, the bike trail, or when doing daily commute. 

Sol Republic claims the form-fitting Free Flex material makes the Relays easy to put in to create an extremely secure fit, without the need for the complicated entanglements and conspicuous design of the wrap-around earpieces common in many sports ear buds.

Apart from their promise to stick like glue, the Relays offer water and sweat resistance, a light-weight and low-profile design to fit under helmets and minimize wind resistance, and an inline microphone for taking calls and controlling music, all for $80. Sound is provided by Sol Republic's I5 "sound engines." The buds will be available in an array of colours sometime in February.

"When we first designed the Relays we did consumer testing and what was revealed was that the inner part of the headphone was uncomfortable aft 30 minutes of use, this led us to redesign the inner part of the headphone" said Combs.
