SOL Republic Relays


The affordable, exercise-oriented SOL Republic Relays are value-priced earphones that offers intense low-end for bass lovers.

Powerful audio performance with intense deep bass. Lightweight, secure-fitting design geared towards exercise. Sweat- and water-resistant. Inline remote for mobile devices

Highly sculpted sound signature isn't for purists

The marketing behind the SOL Republic Relays claims that they're "crossover" earphones, combining the superb fit of exercise-focused pairs with the excellent sound that exercise earphones supposedly lack. This is a pretty bizarre notion—the Sennheiser...

Sol Republic Relays In-Ear Sports Headphone Review


Over just a few years Sol Republic has made a huge name for themselves in the headphone market, and rightfully so. The Sol Republics look great, sound great, and are well built, plus the company knows how to market (professor meowington, Michael...

Broke after 2 days.


None really

Worked great for 2 days ; Wires to earbuds are extremely flimsy and super thin. One of the wires broke in half after lite usage ; Getting a warranty replacement through SolRepublic is burdensome. Too many hoops to jump through. Example: you must send a...

TERRIBLE: Broke after 3 months, no help from Sol


The Sol Republic Relays buttons stopped working after a few months, then right after that, I started losing sound. I contacted customer support nearly 2 weeks ago with no response. I tried calling and got put into a cellphone voicemail even though it...

Great sound and fit.


Great sound and they won't slip out of your ear. I find the control button hard to use - you have to get it JUST right in order to skip ahead. That why I'm rating it 4/5 stars

There are Better Sport Headphones for the Price


I have been using sport headphones for years. These perform well in the basic function of staying in your ears during moderate exercise and transmitting sound from your device to your ears. The quality of that sound is poor. I cannot get to a decent...

Great headphones for sports/ active use


These are not noise canceling and won't produce the highest quality sound but they are built for sports/ active use and are great for that purpose
